The others are correct. A polygraph will not work on the vast majority of politicians.
Why? because most are sociopaths and many psychopaths.
Sociopaths are by definition, people who are outwardly quite charming, frequently charismatic, they appear to genuinely care about others and their
faces and body language are often those of deeply caring and selfless individuals. While.... really not caring at all about others, only themselves
and what they want and what they think they need and deserve, and will do nearly anything to get what they want, if not anything to get what they
When they lie even the best body language/verbal tone/lie detector specialists are unable to detect it and they appear to be telling the truth and so
others tend to believe the lies and fall for their charisma. When caught they appear remorseful with their body language, verbal tones etc, but really
feel absolutely no remorse at all and will keep doing what they want only more carefully next time.
This description of what constitutes a sociopath/psychopath neatly fits the vast majority of elected federal officials - elite political overclass in
the US today.
What might help is a deep background check followed by intense scrutiny by the IRS and NSA and DHS while in office; with an independent detective
agency hired to recheck them annually, changing agencies annually because of the potential of abusing the government oversight agencies. They think
it is ok to do this to the average joe, so they should be subject to it themselves.
