The truth shall prevail

"Politicians are like diapers. They both need changing regularly and for the same reason." - Anonymous

“Truth is not determined by majority vote.” - Doug Gwyn

"People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people. Of course, that is not true. Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote - a very different thing." - Walter H. Judd

"If you don't read the newspaper, you are uninformed; if you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed." - Mark Twain

Anyway, according to Abraham Lincoln, “If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem. It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all of the time; but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.”

We really need to be wise so that we could discern between lies and truth because not all news are truth. Let us pray for wisdom so that we will make the right choice. Think carefully before you cast your votes!

Hi Sam..Its so true,often it seems the newspapers and media feed us lies,which we swallow,as we are accustomed to reading and accepting any stuff they dish out! Often,those may be falsehoods,and we have to take care,or become a bit like a robot,acting and re-acting according to what we are told by the news.How difficult to know when they are feeding us false information.
And in politics its the we really must take care to know as much truth as possible,especially when it comes to casting a vote.But often,the lies prevail,and people cast their votes,and then the promises made by the politicians never materialize!

Hi Jesse,

In my country, the government control almost all the newspapers and media. Thus, whatever published is one sided. Today is election day. All Malaysians are waiting anxiously for the result. I really hope all candidates that won will keep their promises.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

FYI, after this I will be on my way to attend Managers' Conference onboard Sea-Cruise.

Blessings to you Jesse.
