According to a recent poll done by Fox News, the majority of Americans believe that President Obama is usually lying.
Sixty-one percent of the people who took the poll believe that President Obama is lying at least some of the time on important issues. An additional twenty percent say that the President lies “here and there.” That means that eighty-one percent of Americans believe that Barack Obama lies to us.
Sadly, the poll also finds the President’s approval rating at Forty-two percent. That means about forty percent of the people who took this poll know that the President is a liar and they just don’t care.
A lot of you believe that all politicians are liars and that’s just how life is.
But it’s not how things should be. We don’t have to settle for men and women who lie to us with impunity. We don’t have to settle for leaders to whom lying has become second nature. We don’t have to settle for politicians with no moral compass and a character reminiscent of something slimy that you might find on the bottom of your shoe.
We can demand that our representatives be above reproach. We can demand that they speak honestly with us. We can expect them to be morally upright and to build a wall between themselves and corruption.
The only reason our politicians get away with being liars is because we let them. Our politicians are bad because we allow them to be. It’s our fault.
But we can fix it.
Let’s start with the current crop of liars, thieves and swindlers. Let’s vote them out and vote in honest, decent men and women with upright moral fiber. We can do it. So will we?
