With all these political ads on television, I personally think it is easy to spot the liars. Now, what if politicians had to take a polygraph test? Here are the questions:

• Have you ever lied?

• Have you ever cheated?

• Have you ever stolen?

• Do you intend to lie, cheat or steal?

The last question might show up inconclusive, only because they haven't devised a plan yet.

If they have been in office for more than one term, they definitely could not pass this simple test. We have more millionaires in politics than do many other countries. Ask yourself: How did they get this wealth?
