What can we do when Republicans insist on lying over and over again?

Across-the-board cheating and obfuscating is built into every Republican ad and every Republican act in political elections.  They are desperately trying to reduce the electorate in every way possible across the U.S. with redistricting tactics, with voter sign-up scams, and attempts to make photo ID necessary to vote.  When these ploys don't work, they resort to out-and-out lying in your face, as Romney did in the first debate and in all his speeches (ditto Ryan) -- and as the following ad did here in California. 

As was said to Senator Joseph McCarthy in his ruthless pursuit of "communists," when his incendiary tactics were finally being recognized by the public as the baseless attacks they were:
Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?" Those words echo down from the past and plant themselves right in front of today's Republicans. I would like to add, in the present day, to Romney and Ryan now standing before the electorate, spinning their lies blatantly and without conscience: HAVE YOU NO SHAME?  We all know the answer.  Some things never change in the Republican party, in which sociopathy seems to be rampant.

To all Californians, I urge you to vote YES on Prop. 37, the Right To Know campaign to label genetically engineered foods in California!  For more information, please go to:
