I don't know why you are all complaining. You should know that lying has become a prerequisite to becoming a PM or President....and it works.written 6th May 2005
Just look at the US and Australia etc.,

Because we don't actually vote (and not from apathy), some nice person put up this site for us just so's we CAN COMPLAIN... somewhere... get our voice heard.
Apart from you visiting this site (and commenting) without getting a handle on what-it-is-about... you seem to be saying that (a) lying is a prerequisite to leadership and (b) so therefore we should STOP complaining!
Personally, I think that if lying is as you say, then we have more need for complaints that ever before.
Are you saying that as lying exists we should both expect it and condone it?written 7th May 2005
MAdMaN replies: Just because they all lie doesn't make it right. The fact that they lie is part of what makes us not want to vote for them. If there was a politician who could be guaranteed not to lie (as well as having policies I believed in), he'd have a much better chance of getting my vote than the rest of them.written 7th May 2005
Max replies: If you had a non-lying politician all that would happen would be that he'd admit he got it wrong. Both starry-eyed and cynic are doomed to get it wrong if think they can run the exploitative system that is capitalism in the interest of the majority, it just doesn't work like that.written 8th May 2005
