    I agree, maybe that is why are current presidential candadates don't look so good. They promises everything to get our vote, knowing that the public is too foolish to see a fake. Once they get into office the forget about the public anyway so why would they keep a promise to them. Seems we have lost leaders of honesty and replace them with dreamers.

    Honesty is often not elegant. Sometimes it is just an ugly, inconvenient truth and even more often lacks simplicity.

    Look what honesty gets a man like George Bush. Nothing is hated more than an honest man. We do not tolerate honesty in politics. If you actually listen you will find that many politicians promise nothing they just speak in platitudes and generalities. Your job is to fill in the blanks with things you wanted to hear and then if he was skillful enough you will believe he actually said them.

    As it is sublimely expressed in 1 Kings 19:12 -

    " After the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still
    small voice."
     -- Patrick Henry, Red Hill     
    The comforter, the "Spirit of truth" proceeds from the Father of all comfort. Honesty to stand with thee, Charity to walk with thee, O Lord, my granter of Liberty and Freedom for all. Offensive is the truth, when liars rule among men.

    Someone needs to tell that to the career criminal, Hillary.
