They lie because, we the people allow it. They know some of the media will report on it.
We need to step up to the plate and demand honesty. There is a lot we should be doing. The people we elect are not representing us. They are in office for their own glory and all the power they can grab.
We the people are too apathetic and too busy with our own lives. We need a really strong grassroots effort, dem and pubs together.
