Politicon

Created by: Muttley74

Pronunciation: Po-littee-con

Sentence: It would be nice if our politicians would tell us the truth, explain the tough issues, and give us some choices for how to solve the problems. But until there is a grassroots movement supporting discussion of difficult issues—until the supporting winds blow hard enough for politicians with their fingers in the wind to sense the need to do it—most politicians will continue to make "politicons". Until we demonstrate that we can handle the truth, we can expect our politicians to keep lying to us. There will always be some politicians who will make "politicons" more than others and some who come very close to telling us the truth. It's easy enough to identify these two types: The lying politicians will usually be saying things that feel comfortable and require no effort on our part; the truth-telling politicians will usually be saying things we'd rather not hear and prefer not to think about.

Etymology: Politicon is derived from the word "Politics" and the word "Con" meaning to deceive and hoodwink
