I was wondering if you trust your Politicians? I am skeptical of most Politicians in my Country. To give an Example, the Members of the Social Democratic Party were former Communists. An international Example is Sir Winston Churchill who also changed Politics and Parties. Do you think Politicians really care about their Countries and believe in the Propaganda they make?

I trust the Politicians of the Democratic Forum of Germans in Romania because they represent the Interests of Minorities. I don't care mind about the Politics is as long as we German Minorities have our Language and Culture Rights respected.

Hmm my answer has to be NO our current ruling goverment lied about the Afghanistan/Iraq war, the Socialist Party and Groenlinks (green left wing) both have ex communist-terrorists in there party all other parties also lie about things i think the only political party you can trust here for real is Partij Voor De Dieren (party for animals).
And at the moment there is a kind of fight in the goverment between the ruling party's and Geert Wilders (PVV) both saying they are lying about the subject Fitna the movie.

No way I trust these anti-German traitors. I don't even trust parties like the NPD which are full of infiltrators. There are some politicians who rat and re-rat on their so-called "beliefs". Whatever benefits them at the moment works for them. ANYTHING but the interests of the nation. Honecker was a socialist from the beginning and he stuck to those beliefs. I trustED my politicians when my country was stable.

My country is especially blessed with honest, trustworthy politicians. President Bush has such an honest face and voice I know I could follow him to the end. Cheney is a kindly old man with excellent judgement. I would not hesitate to go hunting with him. Hillary is one of those motherly figures that could never tell a lie. As for Obama, WYSIWYG as they say. McCaine has never waivered in his stand on anything. The mayors of my city are the most incorruptible anywhere. This is reflected in our superb municipal services.

Some do, most don't. Much wiser to not trust any of them, except in rare occasions of someone with a clear track record stretching over decades. If you don't trust anyone, they won't have a chance to abuse your trust

No way. Our politicians have a tradition of attacking our old institutions, our heritage and associate with more or less anti-swedish organizations.
Our judicialsystem has their own tradition of letting left-wing hooligans run the streets and trash everything, "expose nazis" and attack everything that they view as enemies to their cause.

And then put pieces together with the G8, Bilderberg group, WTO and other organizations that has links to politicians and you get a picture that is morbid.

The greek state is built on corruption. It is irrelevant if governments change...it is fundumentally corrupted as an institution, it is is the way it works irrelevant of politics.

I trust some but not others. I have very little trust in the left side of politics; their very philosophy is a false one and it's not surprising they're prepared to lie for the cause of this perverse ideology. Some are more reasonable and honest though.

The conservative side of politics I trust no less than non-politicians. They generally believe in a God, and that they are accountable to Him for their actions, although most of them are not exactly super-honest.

John Howard (and many in his government) were unusually trustworthy, although he was of course constantly misrepresented by the media, to the extent that many poor young brainwashed left-wing recruits seem to have regarded him as one of the most dishonest men alive.


To give an Example, the Members of the Social Democratic Party were former Communists. An international Example is Sir Winston Churchill who also changed Politics and Parties.Changing one's political allegiance isn't necessarily a sign of dishonesty.


Hmm my answer has to be NO our current ruling goverment lied about the Afghanistan/Iraq warThis is an issue about which the left wing media have told (and are telling) blatant lies, because they were against the war in the first place. So politicians aren't always as dishonest as the media like to pretend.

No of course I don't. Really who should I trust? The whole FRG political system is destroying our culture and history. I'll vote when I have to because I don't want my vote to go to waste but I don't trust. I lost all confidence and I have no hopeful expectations from politicians. Politicians are corrupt and selfish. The socialists have distanced themselved from the SED platform becoming more liberal towards immigration and other things.


Changing one's political allegiance isn't necessarily a sign of dishonesty.
Not necessarily but in my opinion it's a sign of instability and so I can't trust someone who switches between ideologies more than once. It's understanding if they're young and still forming their views but if they are adult enough they should be stable if they are serious about something.

I don't believe I trust the politicians in this country. They are not "my" politicians. I trust Ron Paul however I don't believe he has many chances.

Trust him? we didn't even elect him, and there is little hope of getting an election till 2010 so can't even pretend that we get a choice.
Unfortunately I don't think I trust any politician, there is something about somebody who goes for a job just to get power, I'm sure there are some well meaning ones who really do want to make a difference, but it's ok the red tape and PC climate will stop them doing anything useful.

Hell no, you're kidding me? I didn't vote for them, so they're not my politicians anyway. Or for this rotten system.
