Too often our elected officials use their official positions to spin, stretch and sometimes out right lie about any given issue that may be in debate in government. On CNN’s iReport today I proposed the idea of a Truth Amendment to the Constitution that would require any and all elected officials to swear to tell the truth in the same manner anyone in a court of law may be required.
I was googling my name as horrible as that sounds and ran across something kinda disturbing concerning the now defunct Ron Paul campaign. It looks as though they have left private information in the public arena.

Last night, as I reread Robert Kiyosaki’s 1997 Bestseller Rich Dad Poor Dad, I realized why Barack Obama will be unable to do what is necessary to fix America’s economy.

Republicans, who are the architects of much of our economic model, are ignoring the results of the November election and seem to be doing just what Jeb Bush said they should – run a shadow government.

— Barack Obama
Many people, even Andrew Sullivan, are saying it would be a guaranteed win in November if Obama chose Clinton as his VP. I agree that it would increase the likelihood of a McCain defeat and would make many Clinton supporters quite appeased. However, if there’s anything to learn from listening to Barack it’s that we have to adjust how we go about governing. And although a joint ticket might mean an easy win it might also mean a hard time in office.

Clinton has been the worst purveyor of this merry-go-round argument of late citing these so-called “battleground” states as proof positive of her chances against McCain in the fall. Never mind that Obama has actually come out ahead in most States in the Union, and never mind that the world and this country is very different than it was just four years ago.
