"I really hate to be pessimistic but the politicians lie because we want them to. If an honest politician actually said what he was capable of doing and not what we wanted from them they wouldn't gain office. We believe lies so we get lied to. And most college students have seen "outfoxed" and any educated person knows the media is biased but it`s up to people to decide what to believe and what not to and we tend to believe the sensationalized version of a story or according to the "minimal effects thesis" we believe only what supports and reinforces our pre-existing biases anyway. Everyone lies, politicans get caught."

Not pessimistic, realistic.

Thank you - this is the point - that the lie is often in the eye of the beholder. "He`s a liar!" is not a political argument.

Nothing profound here. The Network movie is a good one for analogies...and sorry about the lame entertainment value (but that`s why it`s in the News&Politics category.

and you know who's not in that video once? RON PAUL! the ONLY presidential candidate that has been CONSISTENT with his voting record in congress over the last 30 years. And yes, he`s an official candidate...ever heard of him? i doubt it...know why? because the media almost NEVER MENTIONS HIM!
If you don`t want our 2009 to look like 1984 then VOTE FOR RON PAUL!

Unfortunately, I doubt any geeks would take office in the senate anytime soon.

PC-Player poses a good point.

What we need is a loyal leader that can misguide us towards the truth. Or dumb-fire us, seeing as we're a mis-guided country. Dumb-firing with accuracy seems like a wiser, yet riskier move.

Like me, it would have to be an intelligent, social-moron, that knows, by the book, how people behave, and forsees thier next behaviors, with only themselves to guide, without assistance.

Like ballistics, that`s practically dumb-firing. Like I said, and much like ballistics, it`s extremely risky to pull off; but if you are a dead-eye with it, well then, that`s freaking amazing.

All too true... or false... er, I dunno what to say about that.

Politicians suck, they only think for themselves. Leadership is about sacrifice. Nothing says politics like a good coward.
