An interesting situation where if you lie to Congress you commit a federal crime but if a Congressman lies to us there is no penalty. Actually in general if he lies to get elected, the only penalty is to us as his constituents who have to suffer with him for 2 or 4 or 6 years.
I propose that we level the playing field & get to un-elect them if they lie.
