Missy, reading between the lines you are saying politicians have to be liars to get elected.
Well you are certainly in the right country then!
But you are probably right.
I think the electorate don't appreciate honesty and don't recognise it when they see it.
So they get the liars they deserve.
Thing is, if everyone lies then what's the point in having elections as nobody is telling the truth
so you are electing people based on whose lies you most believe. not on the probability
of policies you agree with being implemented.
The only criteria this process selects for is "who is the best liar" and "who can successfully dupe the most people"!
And in that case it's naive to believe that after they get elected they won't just keep lying to you and duping you for their own personal gain
and that of their friends!
Democracy is indeed a tyranny of the stupid!
Why, are they all really good liars?That gives my party a chance so.
