Fool Me Once, Shame on Me. Fool Me Twice…

We’re all familiar with the story of the boy who cried wolf, the cautionary tale about habitual lying. Since I’m sure all of us learned this lesson when we were children, I’m confused why so many Americans seem to have forgotten it when it comes to politicians and other government actors.

How can you tell when a politician is lying? Most of you probably answered something like, “their lips are moving!” What is the cost of this constant lying to the American people? People talk about the loss of trust in “American Institutions,” from the courts to the military, from Congress to the bureaucrats. Yet it seems few have bothered to count the cost of this constant dependence on lies. 

One of my more frequent sayings is, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice; shame on me. Fool me 10,000 times, and I’m probably an American voter!” The American people have been lied to so blatantly and for so long, yet there are those that still expect us to believe them. What disturbs me more than the expectation of belief, is how often the people fall for it. It seems like government actors are Lucy to Charlie Brown of the American people. Apparently, we never learn that they will yank the truth away from us every time. 

The Constitution Study with Paul Engel on America Out Loud Talk Radio can be heard weekdays at 4 pm ET. Listen on iHeart Radio, our world-class media player, or our free apps on AppleAndroid, or Alexa. Listen to other episodes of The Constitution Study, available on podcast.

Paul Engel

Author and speaker Paul Engel has spent more than 20 years studying and teaching about both the Bible and the U.S. Constitution. That experience helps Paul explain difficult concepts in a way most people can understand. As one manager described, “Paul can take the most complex idea and explain it in a way my grandmother can understand.” Freely admitting that he “learned more about our Constitution from School House Rock (a Saturday morning cartoon) than in 12 years of school,” he says that anyone can be a constitutional scholar. Since 2014 I have been helping everyday Americans read and study the Constitution of their country and teaching the rising generation to be free. Using news and current events as a springboard, I explain the Constitution and encourage others to stand up and secure the blessings of liberty for themselves, their children, and the nation.

FAITH IS… with Pastor Rick Stevens – This week we encounter perhaps the most chilling statement in all of the Bible. Then close behind it, we discover the most chilling realization in the Bible.

The NIMBY Hypocrisy

The NIMBY Hypocrisy

The Constitution Study with Host Paul Engel – The recent hyperbolic, and in some cases, the hysterical reaction of the elites who are being forced to live with the consequences of their policies shows not only their hypocrisy but just how little they think of the American people.

The Pandemic is Over, Biden vs Dr. Fauci

After Dark with Hosts Rob & Andrew – Just when we thought Biden had a moment of clarity, albeit late, by declaring the COVID pandemic was over, Dr. Fauci came in and immediately put the kibosh on it.

The Voice of a Nation with Dr. Henry Ealy and Malcolm Out Loud – Pesticides work by shutting down the bug’s nervous system, so the bug suffocates and has a heart attack.

7 Stories to Remind Us It’s Not All Bad All the Time

The JD Rucker Political Report – Between the globalist cabal, the Biden-Harris regime, and the woke army of radical progressives backing both, it’s often hard to find tangible victories to give us hope.
