Politicians should wear lie detectors

Politicians should wear lie detectors.


Reasons to agree:

  1. A lot of government and military leaders have been able to convince their people to die, based upon a lie. (reasons to agree & disagree)
  2. It is wrong to lie.
  3. We should use technology to our fullest advantage. We should have instant re-play at our football games, and if you want to be a politician in our country, you should have to wear a lie detector when ever you speak. We have the technology to stop people from lying to us, why the heck hasn't some one thought of this earlier.
  4. Even if it doesn't stop all of the lying, it will serve the same purpose of the radar gun. People drive slowly knowing that they might get caught.
  5. It aught to be used in at least one presidential debate.


Reasons to disagree:

  1. It might not be good for foreign relations if Bush was to say," we value the opinions of the French" and it says that he is lying with a chance of error of 0 percent.
  2. Politicians lie so well that they don't even know they are lying. If they lie to themselves, maybe it won't pick it up.
  3. Having politicians wear lie detectors is too Big Brother.
  4. The American System of politics has worked pretty well.
