When did our society learn to accept being lied to? We teach our young that lying is wrong; we scold and punish them when we catch them doing it. Yet, we do nothing to scold the public figures that we need to be able to trust. It boils down to whether we view the person/position as being higher in station than we are ourselves. Those we have direct influence over, we do not tolerate lies from. Those who we as an individual have little control over, we listen to and ignore their lies every day. . . .

Talk about a truthful candidate "I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything… Grab 'em by the p$%*y." Is this the kind of President we want talking about a married woman?

Anybody tells you that they are a politician and that they are telling you the truth it has to be his talking because his hind end knows better. Don't matter what party he belongs to.

Saint Paul tells us that those who become caught in the Antichrist's web of deceit will be guilty. Looks like someone has been caught in a web.
