Our leaders lie to us on a regular basis and we accept it as normal political action. Republican/Democrat/left/right, we justify their misleading us as an acceptable rule of governance. What we forget is that THEY are PUBLIC SERVANTS and WE are th SOVERIGN CITIZENS!
They are beholden to us, constitutionally........
I believe that if public servants lie to 'We the People' on any level they should be removed from office with force immediately and treason charges made where applicable.
Government is a map. If we are unhappy with the map we have an obligation constitutionally to change it to better suit our needs. The government will get away with as much as you let them, and ours has been trampling over the rights of the citizens for a hundren years. Except for some resistance in the 60's those in authority are keenly aware that they can rule by fraud, misinformation, scandal, polls, a controlled media and propaganda.
I once heard that if voting could truly change the system it would be against the law, and if not-voting could truly change the system it would also be against the law....
Are we really so asleep????
