Why do politicians continue to lie to us, why don't they tell the truth anymore?
There is so much spin put on every news story you hear. Why have we moved away from telling people exactly what the truth is?
Because their remit is, lie through your teeth about evreything to grasp on to power. Telling plausible porkies is one of the qualifications for the job.
Well I agree with your sentiments MickS but exactly why do they continue to do so, why doesn't someone buck the trend and start telling us the truth?
Because they are control/power freaks and if it needs lying to continue to grasp the power they crave they will. Why? Lack of honour, lack of self control; telling the truth may lose them control so they don't.
Because there are enough mindless, ignorant ideologues in our nation to neutralize the informed, insightful and reasoned among us making lying the only way to gain power, ergo most of our politicians are liars. It is much like the scab of a husband whose wife stays by his side no matter how much he cheats and lies. She believes what he says and ignores what he does.
"Anymore"?! When did they ever tell the truth? Once upon a time, ordinary folks were not allowed to vote. In those days, the politicians never made promises to the public or explained themselves. But once "Joe Everyman" was allowed to vote, the politicians started lying to everyone to get elected. And that's democracy. It works better when the population is well-educated.
I'm not sure politicians have ever been known for telling the truth. I'm not defending all the lies, by any means; but in at least a little fairness about SOME of the lies that get told, the fact is a whole lot people don't take really well to being told something they don't want to hear.
Politicians don't tell the truth because they are the slaves of Big Finance and other similar mafia organisations which don't allow them to tell the truth.

Hi everyone,Here's a thought...We have been taught to speak the truth, but it is right to do so in the cost of hurting/harming someone? Especially if that someone is a person we care for? It is one of the biggest dilemmas, what do you think?

How important is telling the truth in a relationship? Should I tell the truth about every detail?Certain truths are better left untold, but how much should I tell in order to safely grow the relationship without hurting my partner?

Why do people disguise who they reaaly are, why do people lie, is it possible to be 100% honest?Lying does it exist because of that fear of rejection takes over our very being, is it because we do not trust anyone truly. In life would things be turned upside down if you would simply never make...

If you thought she is any different than Bill he is your proof she is not. The only thing she is trying to not lie about is lying. Can we now again begin defining what "is", "is"?http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/hillary- … d=37043658
