Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but no one is entitled to their own set of facts. Yet, in the Jan. 6 Olympian, Michael Fuller made up some of his own facts. His position was that Republicans do not deserve elective office anymore because they lied and stole money. I suggest Fuller turn off his TV and read a book — especially a history book — and read the local newspaper. He is sadly misinformed.
His arguments consisted of these “made-up” facts:
1. Republicans campaigned on jobs, jobs, jobs. Did Fuller fail to realize that the Senate and the presidency are in Democrat hands, and thus deserve two-thirds of the praise or blame for no jobs?
2. Republicans are responsible for our nation’s debt. Again, Democrats are in charge of two-thirds of our national government and news reports show how President Obama tripled our national debt.
3. Republicans stole $2 billion from Social Security. The actual fact is that in 1965 President Lyndon Johnson signed the legislation put forth by the Democrats in Congress to transfer the Social Security lockbox money from a stable fund to pay future retirees into the general fund so the Democrats could raid it for their pet projects.
Fuller may have any opinion he wants, but he cannot make up his own set of facts.
