People Should Make Their Candidates Take Lie Detector Tests. . .

. . .while they are laying out their campaign promises, in order to make sure that these people are telling the truth.

For instance, Bush has been caught up regularly trying to hedge against his family's position regarding the wars that they started in the Middle East; Hillary seems to get testy when saying that she did not compromise national security or do anything wrong by using unsecured e-mail servers that were offsite to conduct state department business, before wiping them clean before handing them over under subpoena; and Trump claims that he cares about this country and wants to make it great again.

Clearly, we are living in an age where liars reign supreme and are promoted to the top of the political heap by the power elite in order to conduct business that is anything but the people's. Therefore, these people should be put under rigorous scrutiny, including lie detector tests, while they are laying out their agenda's and political positions on the campaign trail. It is the only way to be sure that we don't get taken in by something on the order of "read my lips, no new taxes" or "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" ever again.

This should be an absolute prerequisite before any person is allowed on the ballot, at this point in time. Anyone who refuses to submit to the lie detector should automatically be rejected by the people. If they have nothing to hide, then they should have nothing to fear. Isn't that what they are always telling us, as they lie about their intentions and build this police state around us?

Like I said, if they don't submit, then no one would even bother looking at them. It wouldn't be forcing it on that person, but if they fail to do it, then there chances of being taken seriously as a candidate are nullified.

A real candidate would have to lay it on the line, and set the precedent. If Trump were real, as some would have us believe, then he'd be the first, and his numbers would surge even higher, pressuring other candidates to do the same. After that, it would become expected by the public.

You know things are bad on this planet when people consider these things.

We, the people, surely can do better than this.

The royalty, taxes and bankers are the few. That's why they own media and most other mainstream outlets to control the masses, divide us, stir shït to keep our minds off being primarily human beings. It's women vs, men, black vs. white, dollar vs. euro, gadgets and social profiles, you name it. Anything to divide us.

I think that most politicians are 'cool cucumbers' and could probably pass most of the questions posed to them, or be at 50% because maybe some of them actually believe their fantasies.

Quote:Polygraph testing has generated considerable scientific and public controversy. Most psychologists and other scientists agree that there is little basis for the validity of polygraph tests. Courts, including the United States Supreme Court (cf. U.S. v. Scheffer, 1998 in which Dr.'s Saxe's research on polygraph fallibility was cited), have repeatedly rejected the use of polygraph evidence because of its inherent unreliability. Nevertheless, polygraph testing continues to be used in non-judicial settings, often to screen personnel, but sometimes to try to assess the veracity of suspects and witnesses, and to monitor criminal offenders on probation. Polygraph tests are also sometimes used by individuals seeking to convince others of their innocence and, in a narrow range of circumstances, by private agencies and corporations.
The development of currently used "lie detection" technologies has been based on ideas about physiological functioning but has, for the most part, been independent of systematic psychological research. Early theorists believed that deception required effort and, thus, could be assessed by monitoring physiological changes. But such propositions have not been proven and basic research remains limited on the nature of deceptiveness. Efforts to develop actual tests have always outpaced theory-based basic research. Without a better theoretical understanding of the mechanisms by which deception functions, however, development of a lie detection technology seems highly problematic.
For now, although the idea of a lie detector may be comforting, the most practical advice is to remain skeptical about any conclusion wrung from a polygraph.
