I wish people would stop saying that about politicians -- hell, about anyone for that matter. There's no way to verify if anyone's saying what they truly believe, since no one knows how to read minds yet. Using this in defense of a candidate is kind of empty. Not to mention the fact that I'd be willing to bet that no one in the world of politics tells what they "truly believe," anyway (besides Dr. Ron Paul, of course. ). THANK YOU. That's the point I was actually trying to make in my comparison -- you can call a lot of people "terrorists." The word has almost lost all meaning in the past eight years.
