White lies now and then are ok.  You can expect most people to lie now and then.  Politicians lie more than the vast majority of people in professions, and they aren't white lies, they seek to deceive constantly because many they have poor ethics.  Everything they say should be taken with a grain of salt.  The vast majority are in it for themselves and for their own power-seeking first and foremost.

Many mechanics lie, but I found one that doesn't.   His rates are higher, but he saves me far more in the unnecessary work he tells me I don't need to do.

The democratic system forces politicians to lie. Yet it's still the best we've been able to come up with so far.

Or is it? Has China come up with something better that doesn't require politicians to lie?

Or maybe it's not of the utmost importance that politicians are forced to lie?

For one good example, many bright politicians are atheists but they have to lie about it and pretend they are Christians.
