Why do politicians lie to us?

temp Why do politicians lie to us? photoI feel a rant coming on, and although it may not seem like it has anything to do with water, it will. I promise!

And talking about promises, doesn’t it seem amazing that we have come to expect politicians to lie? It’s become a joke, a built-in expectation; politicians lie. It’s the Nixon “I am not a crook” and the Bush “Read my lips.” And it’s not just one party; it’s most definitely both parties, Obama included. Do a search of videos of all the campaign promises that Obama made and see for yourself. Yet many people will still defend Obama with all of their heart and soul.

My point is not to be anti-Obama or anti any politician, nor is my point to call all politicians liars, because I think there are some good politicians. My point is to ask how can it be that we allow politicians to lie to us, especially second and third and fourth (and eighth) termers? Don’t WE THE PEOPLE vote these politicians into office? Don’t we have enough sense to hold people accountable for what they say and if they lie to us then we simply vote them out of office? Apparently not!

If we demanded that politicians be honest with us and follow through on their promises, not a single lying politician would still be in office. Yet we still value what politicians say. We still demand that they tell us what we want to hear. By our actions, we determine that what they say is more important than what they do.

Ok, so what does this have to do with water? The free market is like a democracy. WE THE PEOPLE vote for companies by buying their products. So what drinking water system are you going to choose?

I’ve always been amazed at the sheer number of scams in the water treatment market. We just did a whole series on water myths and scams. These scams have always been around, but they are becoming stronger and more pervasive. How can this possibly be?! Simply because people support them by buying the products.

Just as with politicians, we want water companies to tell us what we want to hear. At some level we want them to lie to us. We want to hear that someone’s patented machine for creating structured water or alkaline water or super oxygenated water will make us live longer. Perhaps it will reverse the damage that we’ve done to our body through years of bad habits or maybe it’s going to give us an extra edge in sports, or in bed, or at work.

What we don’t want to hear is that there is no such thing as a magic bullet. It’s not good enough to hear that drinking plenty of clean water that is free of toxins is one of the best things that you can do for your health. We don’t want to hear the simple wisdom of drinking clean water, eating nutritious food, exercise and reduce your stress. We want more. Lie to me!

So what’s the reason that politicians lie to us? Because we want them to! What’s the reason that there is so much misinformation and scams about water? Because people want it!

So who is Pure & Secure? We are the Ron Paul of the water industry. We passionately tell people what we believe is the truth (based on education and science), whether it’s what you want to hear or not. We will not compromise on our commitment to truth. We sincerely hope that you will vote for us by buying our products. And we certainly invite you to join us in spreading the truth or becoming a Pure Water Distributor.

Rant finito.

    good article Glenn, with one correction! Remember the Pledge” and to this Republic for which it stands”. Many people are misinformed. We don’t live in a Democracy. Someone once defined a democracy as two wolves and a lamb deciding what to have for dinner. I want this country to remain a republic. Our founding fathers wrote that if we evert change to a democracy, it will be our ruin.

      Thanks Ray. I didn’t say that our country is a democracy. It most certainly is a republic that depends upon us being able to trust the people we vote to represent us. The Free Market though is like a true democracy. People vote on which products and companies will succeed by buying the products. So I guess we are an on-going, living experiment in democracy. We offer the truth and the best products.

    Thanks Glenn for your comments on water myths/lies.
    I am amazed at people believing what they hear & then dismissing counter information without really considering its merit, which, is not a scientist’s way of thinking when seeking true understanding
    An example is Butter Vs Margarine & how about Fluoride in the drinking water that was once a toxic waste (by-product of the fertilizer company’s), but because it is sold as a product to municipality’s drinking water facilities, now it’s not a toxic waste. What changed? It’s now diluted into PPM or PPB & we were convinced through the media that it helped prevent cavities – Thank God for the web to research miss-information. For more information on Fluoride from a chemist, there is a video on the web available. See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjT7PcUsM_k (courtesy of http://www.prisonplanet.com)
