    Unfortunately, politics IS the trade of lying, and the people are conditioned to it.  The truth is not important, only appearances.  We 'buy' the person with the best act.  Nothing but gangsters dressed as lawyers  professional liars.  Who says crime doesn't pay?(!!)

    The trade craft of lying is a slippery slope, who is your master ? and for what purpose do you serve ? 
    " Do they not err that devise evil? but mercy and truth shall be to them that devise good. A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies." Prov 14:22,25 KJB
