Like I said...
Truly intelligent people should be able to see past the lies.

And that's not even a valid excuse when it happens over and over and over again.

Has there ever been a politician who delivered everything he promised?


I think the real problem is that people see what they want to see and believe what they want to believe.

Just a few days ago someone posted a song whose lyrics a lot of people seemed to agree with...

Simon And Garfunkel

The Boxer

I am just a poor boy
Though my story's seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
All lies and jests
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest


Now those words are...what...meaningless?

We're all just victims of hundreds and hundreds of liars?

please...
