Good Day World!
I've figured out how to get politicians to tell the truth!
It's not going to be easy, but if you're like me, your sick and tired of the lies that routinely spew from politician's lips.
They get elected by saying whatever they think the crowd wants to hear, then go about their own agenda after being elected.
But how can we stop that? How can we get our elected officials to always tell the truth? I've thought about this for a long time, and the answer is simple and would be effective.
Before speaking publicly a politician must first take a standard polygraph test. They'll be asked questions on the content of their speech.
This will be mandatory or they won't be allowed to speak.
Experts administering the test will be hired by a government agency called the Department of Facts (DOF).
"Proponents will say the test is about 90 percent accurate and critics will say it's about 70 percent accurate," according to Frank Horvath of the American Polygraph Association.
In addition, the politician must sign a disclaimer that they won't go off script and slip in some lies, or they'll be duckwalked out of politics by the average citizen.
Once the politicians speech has been vetted for accuracy - the promise signed - then he/she can give their speech with the endorsement of DOF, and the audience will know there's a pretty good chance they're telling the truth.
Nothing is perfect, of course. There's super liars who may fool the test. Even they will not be safe. The first time they get caught lying about anything they claimed...the game's over.
After awhile - with an effort like this - the liars will eventually be culled from public offices.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
