Where Is Truth?

22 June 2004

Democrats have fumed over our presence in Iraq. Some believe we should be there, but we got there under false pretenses. Clearly, some in the Bush administration feel as though some of the intelligence reports they received were flawed.

Clinton’s book is out. In interviews, he’s still oblivious to the fact that he was impeached for lying to a grand jury. Liberal media members call it spin. I call it lying.

Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal ran a story about the launching of the liberal radio network called Air America [Note: Subscription may be required] From beginning to end this is a story about the many deceptions that were exchanged between founders, employees, suppliers and investors in the new venture.

In the same edition of the paper is a story about Lou Dobbs who has been whining endlessly about American businesses that have sought offshoring opportunities to countries where employees earn less. (It’s a classic case of lowering costs.) Yet, a newsletter that Dobb’s mails to investors has included these offshoring companies in a list of companies he endorses while also placing them on the ”offenders’ list” at his offshoring web page.

Now we’re about to endure political conventions and the final stages of the campaign for the White House. Truth is going to continue to be pretty hard to find.

We have become so focused on power, prestige and position relative to others that truth is lost in the shuffle. We believe we are more important than others. Truth gets lost. Are you more important than others? Why? Is it the car? Is it the clothes? Is it the position you hold? Is it your net worth that makes you more important? Do you understand the relationship between truth and leadership?

”Furthermore, you shall select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; and you shall place {these} over them {as} leaders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and of tens. Exodus 18:21 New American Standard Bible
