QOTD - How loud are you singing?

About a year ago or so, I posted on Facebook about Trump's comments on the minimum wage... saying that he would support raising the federal minimum wage to $10 an hour, a departure from his previous assertion that wages are "too high." He also said... "I would leave it and raise it somewhat." and he said, "I know it's not very Republican to say."

On that post... a friend said... "...he can say he would support it and appeal to progressive voters without having to actually produce it. This is called Politics 101 and it is why he can win..."

When I replied, "oh. so, you mean he can win because he is willing to lie about what he is willing to do?" his response was... "Welcome to political reality."

That same person is now ranting at McCain for lying about his support for Obamacare, and I don't know whether to laugh, or cry.  

If we lie to them, it's a felony, but if they lie to us, it's politics? We allow our politicians to lie to us, and, it seems we also encourage it and we condone it. 

That makes this video extremely important, and valid, when it comes to this election, and every election in this Country. Not because of what Hitler did after he got elected, but because of the fact that he got elected, and how he got elected, and that is what this video is about. How Hitler got elected.

Those who are entrenched in the house and the senate, those who lie to us about what they will or will not do, should not be elected, and certainly, should not be re-elected. 

We get the government we deserve. What do we deserve? What do your children deserve?

So.  How loud are you singing?
