Candidacy (Employment) Fraud


POLI the AI asks, "Where can we agree?" It's one thing for a candidate to be conflicted in their views and work audiences, it's another thing to bald-face lie about basic qualifications for office. ONE PARROT boasts all's fair in love, war, and politics. If the party, election officials and the media don't care enough to vet candidates for office then let the voters beware. THE OTHER PARROT roasts those who think lying to get what they want is acceptable, it sets a bad example for children, and encourages our enemies to distrust the US even more. Almost all job applications are subject to background checks, and the people essentially hire their elected officials. Candidates should file a public record background affidavit. First, CLICK ON A ROLE, then click on YES or NO if you think a majority of each role is for or against.


Should candidates falsifying backgrounds be disqualified?

Let’s get horizontal, Politics 4.0 makes strange bedfellows

Turn your phone and your perspective horizontally
Widen your views, literally and figuratively
Politics is a landscape not a self-portrait
You’ll need both your left and right thumbs
Widen your views — left and right
Let’s knock down some figurative silos
Let’s sit on the 50 yard line, not just one end zone
