In 2008 we saw the United States first African American elected to office. In 2016, we have now witnessed the first president committed of fraud during an election period elected to office. Between election day and his inauguration into the White House, President Donald Trump will be standing as a witness at his own trial for his failed business venture – Trump University.
Trump University was designed to be an educational facility in which many could enroll to perfect business acumen and even gain a business degree. Allegedly, instead, thousands of dollars were taken from potential Trump university students with no to very little product for their money. Many were outraged at the scandal and it wasn’t long before the matter was taken to the courts.
Trump Under Fire
This is not the first court case Trump has been privy to. In fact, an article in USA Today recently disclosed that Trump actually has dozens of lawsuits filed against him, none of which will simply disappear after he enters the oval office.
Trump was not the only political candidate this year with a harrowing unlawful background. As advertised by a substantial number of media sources, Hilary Clinton was also scrutinized for deleting hundreds upon thousands of emails – a dangerous act for someone with so much information lying literally at her fingertips.
Clearly, even among our nation’s leaders, it is paramount that some measure of truth and honesty be restored. Can you imagine how much easier presidential elections would be if there were a way to accurately gauge the truthfulness behind each candidate’s words? New deception detection software, EyeDetect, could do exactly that. It is a viable and highly reliable resource. EyeDetect is extremely invasive. It measures the activity of the eyes, specifically the pupil. In this circumstance, presidential candidates would be unable to control the dilation of their pupil’s, and detection could be easily measured.
Not only would EyeDetect be a great software to implement in a presidential election, but it also could be a valuable resource in the courts. Currently, EyeDetect’s competitor, the polygraph, cannot be used in courts due to it’s likelihood of human error and variation in analyzing the results. Since EyeDetect software uses special algorithms to unearth results, this problem could be mitigated almost completely.
Perhaps EyeDetect should be more seriously considered in our nation’s next election.
