    Finally a solution to world peace! Since most politicians would be dead, people wouldn't have to fight over policies because the end result is neither side would ever have the clout to get anything done. Brilliant!

    Virtually everybody who rises to any position of power, authority and wealth in the United States of America, had to lie and be very comfy with corruption to get there. So if you start executing politicians or ANY other wealthy, powerful people for being dishonest to get where they are, you’d be killing a helluva lot of people. There would be hardly anybody left

    No way! Of course not!

  • They should have to spend their campaign money on correcting the lie. To their opponents satisfaction.

    Politicians are defacto rulers, that alone would keep that from ever happening. Also rulers must control their subjects and you can not control people without lying to them. Try it, you'll see.

    They lie every single day so if they were keeping tabs, they would be executed almost immediately.

    Politicians should be forced to (1) take an independent IQ test, (2) release their tax returns, (3) Be tested on their knowledge of the constitution and government, (4) disclose data on their campaign financing, and (5) be subject to a criminal background check that is made public.

    Regarding lying, if politicians were executed for lying then we'd have to execute everyone in Washington.

      I'm OK with that except I'd rather get rid of the IRS period.
