       I realize that this may infer that the owners of MakeLiarsPayYou are themselves liars. So maybe you can suggest a better name

       Or a hacker collective that metes out punishment precisely according to infringement.

       I would like to sue Tom Brady for lying about his involvement in deflategate. And then tossing away his cell phone. I would like to sue him for defamation of character...his. So yeah.

       From the title, we hoped this would be a scheme for selling politcians internal organs on ebay ...

       Generally, if they lie, they are going to actively avoid paying even in the court system. Doing a lot of publicity would probably hurt them.

       Every vote for a third party -- any third party -- is a victory. Even if it's for Trump (assuming he doesn't win the nomination). The two party system is the bane of every good thing in US politics.

       You mean there's ANYTHING good in U.S. politics ? Who knew ... ?   

       // misogynistic, racist, anti-immigration, a right-wing wall-building egocentric nutter who wants America to be so anti progressive that the US dies off after becoming the most backwardly violent country on the planet. //   

       We'll vote for that ...

       Sorry, I didn't realize the elections were in full flare.

       Make liars pay you, using this one weird trick!

       I was hoping this idea would be about making lying illegal in the contexts where it matters:   

       Sales!   

       Relationships!   

       Management!   

       But, if we could all read each other's minds we'd probably end up with a repressive totalitarian government due to the lack of privacy for dissent.

       Which is totally different that what we have now, right [snicntown]?
absterge, Aug 11 2015
  

       Well, if we could read each other's minds the NSA would probably be monitoring everyone's thoughts and saving every single thought everyone ever has in a huge database in a massive datacenter in some random desert.   

       And, politicians would be only people sufficiently empty- headed to avoid even thinking thoughts that might offend voters.   

       On second thought, you seem to have a point.
