Leap of Faith to the White House (Part II: Truth Matters)

*also see Part I: Leap of Faith 

I am decidedly persuaded that truth matters. I am decidedly convinced that a property of truth is that it adheres fully only to true things, which is to say that truth does not adhere to things that are false.
