Thinking of democracy as voting for our representatives is only part of the process. For democracy to work our representatives have to tell us the truth. As ex senator Richardson once said it politicians told the truth the would never get elected. If they don’t tell us the truth we do not know what we are voting for.
When this blog goes live in four weeks this site will be my take on where our politicians are not telling the truth. This includes not only lying but also not telling us what we need to know to make considered choices.
