Is it ok to tell someone that they are incredibly ugly for no reason at all?  Is it alright for me to tell you that you ask stupid questions?

Philosophical question: Is a 'little white lie" something like a woman being a "little bit pregnant"?

Sometimes, you just know that the person cannot handle the truth. So, rather than lie, I suggest saying something like, "No comment."

Another example: Suppose you behaved in an unforgivable manner regarding someone you love dearly without their knowledge. Later, when feeling much guilt for your actions and wanting to set things right you desire to confess to your loved one to relieve your guilt but that would destroy your relationship. What should you do confess or remain silent and bear your guilt?

What about no-tell? Not telling truth or not telling complete truth.Treat like a lie?

Company manager policy of not recording as required, documenting, or passing on through chain of command of truth, protecting 'image', forming culpability cutout?

Kochs sent hundreds of thousands of fake voter registration mailings in North Carolina
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/09/30/1333372/-Kochs-sent-hundreds-of-thousands-fake-voter-registration-mailings-in-North-nbsp-Carolina# - TUE SEP 30, 2014 - by Joan McCarter
Koch brothers' Americans for Prosperity group tried to register a cat to vote it was amusing. But with more of the story unfolding now,

Jennifer Odom's daughter shouldn't have gotten anything in the mail, let alone a voter registration form.
"It was disturbing for a couple of reasons," said Odom. "First, Samantha would only be four-and-a-half years old. So it's a far cry from the age of voting. Secondly, she passed away two years ago."

The statute allows withdrawal if incompetent. But, by manipulating the situation, Taylor is proving his political competence. Therefore, the law don't apply.

I'm not particularly confident that the statute has allowance for "incompetence", though the paragraph allowing requests from "the county chairperson of the political party" could potentially be active for it. There's no reason given to state why such a request might be made. (Edit: Sorry, my mistake. One reason is given: "death".)

The only item given for a nominated person to make a withdrawal request is a simple statement of being "incapable". From the behavior of a large number of officeholders, it seems clear that 'incompetent' does not equate with 'incapable'.
