In this dialogue, we the discuss the propensity of Americans to select the lesser of two evils, because the political options we have today all run the same facade, which is designed to get people to believe what ultimately turn out to be completely lies. In most cases, it seems that people of this world prefer those people who will smile in their faces, as they are stabbing them in the back to those who tell harsh, but necessary truth. For example, we explore the case of those who have long offered to help the poor, and then turn around and ignore them after they are elected, or those who promise to do something to work to resolve society's ills, and then merely continue failed policy of previous administrations. At the end of the discussion, we bring in a conversation about white lies, and offer examples of how to tell truth in a way which does not alienate those listening to you.
