    Basing an entire campaign on intentional lies and misrepresentations should be illegal. Since apparently it isn’t, as citizens we have to be the ones to show them the red card and punish them at the polls.

    We can not have a functional democracy if we reward our parties for blatently lying and hurting the country for their own political advantage.
