you can tell a lot. you can tell exactly what a con artist is willing to say to get paid, you can tell from what they deny what their agenda is. you can tell even more from who the news channels are propping up. but if you care about voting (which some people dont, and its their right under the US constitution) you can find out a lot more by checking what they have done in the past (most political candidates that you have heard of have had a political career for a while) and the most important, check who paid for their campaigns, or what companies they were CEO of or things like that. thatl give you an idea of what their agenda is going to entail when they get elected. for example, bill clinton recieved contributions from merck, and he played a major role in legalizing drug commercials on tv. george hw bush and george w bush owned and chaired and played a huge role in the oil industry especially in west texas and they both waged wars in iraq, which has like the second (i think) most oil in the world. new bush friendly government there. and oil companies made record profits i think 5 quarters in a row under bush. that means that they beat their previous record every 3 months. think about that. oh and lyndon johnson was "friends" with certain mafia men right around when they were first considering drugs a respectable business. vietnam has a lot of poppy seeds. those are just the big ones i think are pretty bad. theres tons tons TONS more. i dont mean to go on a raid.
if you dont believe me... YOU ARE ON THE INTERNET RIGHT NOW!!!
