Today I visited a well known local car dealership. I admit I was lured by a promotion where it appeared I had won $1,000. I knew that to be unlikely, but could not figure how I would not win from flyer. I could not figure out how it was a scam. I will admit it also got me thinking about buying a new car. When I arrived and showed the sales guy the flyer he brought out a poster that showed how the wording on the flyer worked. Yes, it was a scam.
I asked him how he felt about doing that to people and he said , “Well, it is a car dealership.” On my end I was thinking, ” There is no way I would ever buy a car from these people.” It is more than the fact that they are dishonest, they are not only dishonest but completely unashamed of their dishonesty, even proud of it. It is like you should expect them to be dishonest, and they expect you will buy a car from them even if they lie, mislead, and scam you. Anyone that buys a car from these people can expect pain and extra expense.
When Trump says that he no longer thinks highly of Cruz because Cruz’s poll numbers are better or where Rubio paints his competition by changing the facts, both politicians are doing the same thing as the car salesperson. When Hillary ducts questions about Benghazi, or her email it is no different. All of them would say, “Well it is politics.”
If we vote for any of them it will, just like buying that car, cost us more and lead to pain and strife. For both groups I have the same advice, its my money and my life you want to abuse with your deceit. It is not just politics or a dealership, it is my life and I am tired of you getting away with thinking it is OK to be a slime. It is not OK. It hurts me personally, and it hurts our country. We, the citizens should expect more. If you lie, cheat or steal, or even promise that which you have no intention of providing, you should be held accountable. You should be, arrested, exiled, banned from society. It is time for there to be a higher standard in American life. Lets start with the car dealerships and finish with Congress and the White house.
