    My question is...

    Should Presidents who make promises to the masses to get elected only to do the opposite once in office be looked at as traitors?
    No but they should be looked at as a reason why there should be a recall system for presidents.

    Treason? No.

    Every president would probably end up being jailed, and it'd no longer be a postion worth attaining.
