Trust in Washington

By Lucius Gantt

      I don’t have a lot of money. I’m in good but not perfect health. What I do have is my faith, my life, my family and my word!

The Gantt Report editor and the column have been called a lot of things but neither has the reputation for lying and misrepresentation.

And, I am proud of that.

I use a lot of hard adjectives and descriptions like devils and beasts but those descriptions are not about individuals or groups. The descriptions are about what they do.

Devils do devilish things. Satanic groups do Satanic things. And beasts “talk” and act with animalistic intentions and purpose.

The truth hurts more than people think. Can I give an example? Yes.

Growing up in Atlanta, when kids got angry on the playground they do the “joneses”, some people call it “mama jokes” like, “Your mama so skinny she can hula hoop with a Cherrio!” And all of the kids would burst out laughing.

But when something was said that was true, it wouldn’t be too long before there was a fight.

It’s the same way with opinion columns. When you write the truth some people get upset.

I look at the truth like this. As long as I know what’s really going on, how someone really feels and how it will really impact me, I can deal with it.

It’s when people lie to me is when I begin to have problems. Business lies, personal lies, academic lies, recreational lies, religious lies, relationship lies or political lies, a lie is a lie!

If I had to guess, and I don’t have to or care to, about who is the person lying the most in Washington, D.C., my guess would be the Biggest Liar would be the 45th President!

I don’t need to remind you about leaks, testimonies, responses and other political crap because it’s on TV, radio, internet and everywhere else.

I just want to say: tell the children the truth!

Whatever is happening, young people will have to deal with it.

You name them. All of your true heroes began their journeys, missions and destinies when they were young.

As far as politics go, when young people vote, better politicians are elected, better initiatives are passed and better lives are lived.

I know it may seem that this column appears shorter at times, but it’s not because there is nothing to say or write – the columnist is worn out.

I had a tough week but I do my best to give reader and media owners what I can.

If you print the truth, someone will write the truth!  I will do it as long as I can and as long as you want me to.  (Buy Gantt’s latest book, “Beast Too: Dead Man Writing” and from bookstores everywhere. Contact Lucius at And, if you want to, “Like” The Gantt Report page on Facebook.)
