I was just thinking. Why don't we make agreements to random polygraph testing a prerequisite for running for office? If I had to agree to drug testing via urinalysis in order to work for a major retailer, why not make it so, that if you are not willing to voluntarily wave your 5th Amendment rights for the sake of transparency, you're not fit to run for office.
I know why it won't happen. It's because politicians' closets are filled to the brim with fresh bones; but what don't the people simply demand it?
Donald J. Trump, did you collude with Russia? Yes, or no?
William (Jackass) Clinton, did you have sexual relations with that woman? Yes, or no?
Barack H. Obama, are you a natural born citizen? Yes, or no?
George (Dubya) Bush, did you have prior knowledge of 9/11? Yes, or no?
I realize polygraphs probably have a margin of error, but we could use it as a first line of investigation.
What does ATS think?
