These candidates are certainly not the first to "talk trash" during a campaign; politic hopefuls from both parties and even independent parties make promises based in fiction.
It's interesting that most of the mainstream media who cover these candidates, "news" anchors and talk hosts are not pointing out the factual error of anyone's promises.
As citizens, we can either stay mum and allow the politicians to believe we accept blatant false promises as being okay, or we can make our voices heard that this type of behavior and grandstanding is unacceptable. On which side of the issue do you stand? How do we let the political machine know our thoughts on the subject?
