Forum Post: http://wh.gov/gGgm (Make Political Perjury Illegal)

An attempt should be made to insure the safety of all Americans against the predations of those who would seek to use and or abuse the power and authority of elected office to intentionally or unintentionally mislead the governed about the truth of policies or activities in government affairs that would literally have a direct affect upon the lives of all Americans. Americans, with the exception of LEGITIMATE National Security Issues, should be kept apprised of ALL TRUE FACTS surrounding ALL issues germane to the efficient management of the government for which ALL Americans employ, elect and pay taxes for the operation thereof. Should those in office, or running for office, be found guilty of TRUE perjury, a minimum 2 year prison sentence should be mandated. Go to the Short URL at the whitehouse site to sign the petition, because until we pass a law that forbids the deliberate misleading lies meant to confuse voters as to the best policies that benefit our Democracy, Americans will forever be at the mercy of the Best Liars.

Thanks for all your assistance.

this does certainly seem reasonable. It should not provide an impediment to freedom of speech, simply a consequence for lies. I'm in favor of that.

I think the proposed sentence is way too lenient.

  • I would much prefer hanging.

where's that goddamned url . . .

That is my whole point, WE THE PEOPLE need to mandate that our representatives pass a law that says that they are NOT ALLOWED to lie to us about the affairs and policies affecting our nation

Lying about wars? Why would that ever be illegal? How else does the war machine make profits?

Lying in office should be illegal for sure. It'd literally save us trillions of dollars if liars weren't allowed to abuse their authority through lying. Also we wouldn't be at war.

Why are we still in Afghanistan? Anyone believe the lies?

If you want to make it illegal for politicians and the like be legally bound against lying to the American people, go to this white house petition site "short URL: http://wh.gov/gGgm " and sign the petition. If enough signatures are gather, the president himself will put it up to be mandated into law.
