The truth means little

I don’t believe in politicians but there they are trying to get elected. After every speech there are head lines about fact checking the politicians speech. But do we really care what the facts are? If you are a republican you want the repuplicans to win the election despite the facts. If you are a democrat you want the democrats to win the election despite the facts. You know your party isn’t perfect but you can’t stand the other one and despite the facts you would feel best if your choice won.

When my favorite football team plays the officials might make some good calls, some bad calls, some calls that are unfair and dishonest to the opposing team, but as long as my team wins that’s what’s most important right? Despite the facts.
