Comment: Do Facts Ever Matter

Do Facts Ever Matter

Or do people just spout out what they would like to be true as the truth and then everyone believes it so it becomes the truth on the Daily Paul even though it is factually incorrect - well the average of Real Clear Politics polls shows that Obama has a 1% lead in the polls - well within the statistical margin of error which for most polls is 3-5% but here it is claimed that Romney is being "soundly beaten" in the polls - how close does it have to get in order for anyone in here to acknowledge that the election is close - does Romney need to be ahead by 5% before you admit that the election might be close. Or do facts matter at all - you will just claim whatever supports your point of view - and it is highly immaterial whether it is true or not - in my lifetime this is called LYING.
