The most honest thing I have heard in a long time was a comment posted on the CTV website in regards to the Brian Mulroney, Karlheinz Schreiber affair.
Sadly the reason no one cares about this is that we have come to a point in our society when we have all accepted a simple truth… when a politician opens his mouth, lies fall out. And politicians aren’t to blame because business people are the same…. we are SWIMMING in lies 24/7. Simply we can’t believe ANYONE any more… so it comes to this… why bother to ask when all you’ll get is fabrication, fantsy and bulls##t?
The unfortunate things is that as well as honest it is entirely depressing. Even those politicians we support for exigent reasons will lie in the belief it is for the betterment of the country. Growing up I was always told a man of Character does not lie. Now I am sick of the accusation that unless you accept a world that functions on deceit we are naive.
I hope and pray that somewhere out there, there is a politician that has the testicular courage to be honest. All those that will lie for their ideals have none.
