Liar Liar


I am a liar.
The proposition "I am a liar" is true.
If "I am a liar" is true then it is false, I am not a liar.
Then the proposition "I am a liar" is false.
If "I am a liar" is false then it is true, I am a liar.
Based on a true story.

For someone to be classified as a liar do they have to be a continuous untruth teller? I think not.

It is not only about classifying someone as a liar (that's also an ethical matter). This post was more about classical logic and linguistic paradoxes (related to philosophy as the tag of the post signifies), therefore I gave the link as well.
