Campaign Promises

Wouldn’t it Be Great…

If we could legislate that politicians should be held criminally liable for lying on the campaign trail? Or at least removed from office, if they reverse their positions from their promises. In any other field, if you don’t deliver what you promised, you usually don’t get paid. Maybe that’s an idea that should be advanced — if they go back on their word, they don’t get paid! But in the end, the corrupt don’t really rely on their salaries, they count on income from grafts.

When silent, the politician speaks the truth.
