Why do people get mad when lied to by politicians ... especially when they basically beg politicians to lie to them?
As I've gotten older, I decided to make myself more aware of world and national events - especially our political process - I find myself growing increasingly disgusted.
It just seems like this society consists of people who, collectively, are as effective as a dog chasing its tail. I say this because it seems people get mad when politicians either appear to, or flat out, lie to them, but the only way politicians will get elected is if they tell the people what they want to hear (regardless of the real-time circumstances).
People want politicians to make everything all better with the same expediency as a mother kissing a baby's boo-boo ... and then act as mature as that baby when it realizes the pain is still there.
