Why is it that when the govt. lies to us, it's just politics -- but when we lie to the govt., it's a felony?

    Not only is it okay for them to lie you can not even sue them for lying. A Judge held that lying in advertising as a politician is Okay. What's with that?

    Because Government is exempt from the law.. maybe even above the law.

    Speaking of lying...

    The Police not only are allowed to lie to you, it is encouraged for them to do so, if it will speed getting their perpetrator. However, it is a felony if you are caught lying to the police.

    Always remember, the police are NOT here to protect you.. they are here to protect the government FROM you!

    I've often wondered the very same thing. For instance, we can't lie to the police without repercussion, but they CAN and often DO lie to the public in an act called entrapment.

    They pass laws that exempt themselves form the law of the land. It's called the good old ‘double standard’

    ... and yet, if we were to lie to that judge, we'd be put in jail.
