Here’s a conundrum for you: for a politician, politics is simply their job. Like almost anyone in any job, they lie when it suits them so they can continue making money. Election campaigns are like their interview process. Everyone lies to make themselves look better in the interview process. It’s what we’re actually told we’re supposed to do. For politicians, this is no different. Politicians lie because for them, politics is their career.
But how do we try to change that when any change would have to come directly through the politicians, who would be vested against their jobs being taken away from them?
