    When are the lies of politicians big enough for Americans to want a return to integrity in D.C.?

    I'm 64. I've lived through 8 presidents. Not one has told the truth. All, if private citizens would have gone to jail for the lies they told or for their deceit.
    Congressman's acts have been just as bad.
    Every level and every department of  government, in 36 years of watching it "live", has deceived the American people of committed perjury.
    When is enough, enough?
    Now we have a Presidential candidate, hillary killary clinton, that's broken the law while running for president, and almost half of adults don't care that she's a criminal.
    If it doesn't change now, when will it ever change?

    "Not one has told the truth."

    That may be true, but how many pathologically lied throughout their career as a politician, from serving on the Watergate committee to lying about her husband's dalliances blaming them on a vast right wing conspiracy, lying about terrorist attacks, including their child in a national lie, lying about why she had a server,  saying "It was allowed" or she "never received nor sent any material that was marked classified" on her private email server while secretary of state, the 33,000 deleted gov't emails were personal, lying about pay to play contributions, where she was on 911 and on and on.

    Really, what president (besides Obama), including her husband has not told the truth even close to all the lies of Hillary Clinton and she isn't even President yet.

    Ben Carson is an intelligent and reasoning man and I for one agree 100% with what he said, if we accept Hillary Clinton WE ARE DOOMED!

      I think we're doomed either way.
      Corruption's corruption - big or small. Americans are getting screwed by the government daily
      GOP or demoncraps, both have not a care for American citizens.

      How many pathologically lied throughout their career as a politician?  All of them of course!

      Nice try, you need to read the definition of pathological liar. Look it up, Hillary's picture is right next to it.

      ptosis - of course, that's what politicians do be it republitards or the demoncraps - they lie.
      The question is - when is enough, enough.
      Me thinks it's close to that point now. But, as the architect for obamacare state, "Americans are stupid".

    I think we are going to see a big difference here, from past elections.
    We have never had a President, not since Nixon, who was on his second term, go into the office under such a cloud of controversy.
    There isn't an issue of did she know of this crime, or to what extent... this isn't Watergate where it had to be proven... we know, the Clintons did use the Clinton Foundation to funnel 'pay-off' or 'pay for play' money to themselves, to enrich themselves, and their 'allies'.
    We know she took Top Secret, Secret, and Classified information and then sent it on non-secure email communication.
    I understand most people don't understand how Classifications work, but what I can explain quickly is that Top Secret information is NOT sent on the internet... it is on a separate communication system known as the SIPRnet... what Clinton and her aids had to do was take information from that secure system, and  scan, pdf file, or however they transferred it to the regular internet, which is completely and fully against all regulations and laws known.
    Its not a question of IF she did something wrong... she did MANY things wrong, illegal, corrupt... its just a matter of how corrupt the entire system is... how hopeless and lost our nation is.
    In the time of Nixon, she would already be in jail, facing racketeering and treason charges.  Obama would have to pardon her for her to escape it.
    Now the media lies for her, and the people of this country blame the whistle blowers, just like they blame the police, just like they blame everyone who stands up for law, order and justice.
    The criminals control the country... and there seem to be plenty of fools that support them.

      Hey Ken,
      So, I'm assuming you think there'ill never be time when Americans say "enough is enough"? We just continue electing crooks and thieves?  We, as citizens, allow America to continue being a cesspool of corrupt politicians?
      No turning back?

      No I don't believe so, it is clear they have developed a pretty solid system of keeping people divided and attacking one another, rather than those who are responsible for their suffering.  Politicians are front men for the real culprits.

      Ken,
      I think you and I are on the same page.
      All the best to you and yours.
      Cheers

      The Democrat's defense "everyone does it" means we need the non-politician in charge - Trump.

      I agree, Tamara,
      So refreshing to see something besides the liberal drivel that's so common these days.
      All the best to you and yours!
      Cheers
