American politics have been reduced to a walk through the Valley of Lies.
You better get use to liars, because that's all we're ever going to elect as President of the United States from now on.
Two world-class liars contending for the White House this election are the foundation for a future of fibbers who are judged on the volume of lies they tell, as opposed to their lying opponent.
Outright lies have been outed this year, but they're being overlooked as partisans stick to their party brands. With the help of social media those lies are repeated so often that they become reality in some people's minds.
The point is, lies won't stop our future presidential candidates from being elected. Once upon a time it wasn't like this.
One reason why is that every minute detail of a person's life is under incredible scrutiny from multiple sources...and who hasn't lied at one time or another in their life?
Americans know a liar is going to be the next president. We have settled for what the parties have given us, and sunken into the slim of hateful rhetoric that will decide this race.
Is there a politican somewhere in America that hasn't lied? I don't know.
I do know that it's going to be virtually impossible to find a candidate to run for the presidency who hasn't publicly, or privately, lied about something.
Sadly, I can't see this trend reversing itself. I do think however we should make a title change for our new president - Liar-In-Chief.
What do you think?
Time for me to walk on down the road...
