Thread: We need new campaign rules.

We need new campaign rules.
I think we need to have "truth monitors" following the candidates around, and every time a candidate tells a lie or warps the truth, he or she needs to be corrected right then and there. I've been listening to an excellent series on NPR that examines claims made by each candidate the day before and exposes the BS. It quite non-partisan. They nail Kerry just as often and hard as they do Bush. What's become terribly obvious is that you cannot believe ANYTHING either candidate says. They're both lying and warping facts. I'd love to see "truth monitors" standing beside each candidate at every speech. They could hit a large gong every time they catch BS.
Bush: "My opponent, blah, blah, blah..."
Monitor: "Sorry Mr. President, but that's not true. The truth is..."
Kerry: "The President says, blah, blah, blah...."
Monitor: "Sorry Senator, but that's not true. The truth is..."
I don't think this would go on very long before each candidate really started telling the truth all the time. What a change that would be. Then maybe we'd find out what's really going on.You can't fix stupidity.

Couldn't we include some sort of electric shock?
I dont think a "gong" would do it.

At the end of the debate, both candidates would be laying on the floor, smoking and twitching and drooling, then out walks somebody like, like...I dunno, a chicken maybe, who squawks "vote for me!" and gets elected...*
Seriously, though, M_Six, I very much identify with your ire at these liars.
* platform: "more chicken feed for everybody!"
