2. One that has detailed steps/plans that sound logical but are in reality total lies and/or not even close to what will actually be attempted or happen in reality?
We have had 20 years of # 2

So i'm going with #1 and saying what's behind the curtain ? Curtain draws back to expose a big beautiful WALL. Finally I have chosen a winner !!!

LOL!

But do we know the air is clean? It could be laced with arsenic. There's no way to know!

"Here step into this chamber. Take a deep breath. You might live an extra 10 years or you might breathe in poison and die. It's your guess!"

No thank you sir. LOL

I prefer the one who is rational and less of a corporatist.

As opposed to:

"Here, step in to this chamber. Take a deep breath, you'll be fine, I'll take care of you."

You die, because they lied, and you knew that they were a liar when you stepped in.

No thank you, ma'am.

truthfully neither!!! given the choice ; I would probably be inclined to choose the person who is vague. Choice number 2 would actually be scary!!! I don't like liars or hypocrits!!!

It's politics. They all lie to ge you in their chamber. But you know from years of dealing with them there is a chamber and you basically know what it's made of. Now they may promise you improvements and ponies and sweet smelling air inside and you'll really get cheap wood paneling, a my little pony keychain and the smell of Lysol mixed with farts, but no one is going to kill you. LOL

With number 1 the chamber may really be a jail filled with poison gas. Or it could be a pathway to Narnia laced with riches. Or it could be another boring mediocre chamber. You won't know until you step in.

I don't agree with Cruz on anything but if he's elected, I know what we're getting. Ditto pretty much everyone else running. But #1 is a huge roll of the crazy pants dice. I'm not that much of a risk taker. I don't even do casinos! LOL

So the options are essentially a lie vs a lie.........
Well then I would go with the individual who at least can come up with a detailed and logical plan in theory as to opposed the individual who has little more to offer than soundbites with no substance and still needs to lie!
