I’m wondering, is this the case? If one sees for whom they voted, it seems the answer is “maybe”.
AFAIKT Obama has lied. He promised to close Guantanamo but still this violation of human rights is still functional.
I do not even start talking about his slogan “Yes we can”. The base is Obama has not shown any particular strength in economic knowledge.
He still believes in the magic of the printing press and has nothing to show for paying back the few trillions of debts of the US.
So overall he has lied in more than one way and still one considers voting for them. That means honesty is not what is expected from Politicians.
But if one prefers to be lied at one gets only liars voted. Will this make your live easier?
