Politicians today have no ethics. They are not ignorant to ethical behaviors, they just disregard it – the rules do not apply to them. The American voters need to replace them with representatives who do not disregard ethical standards. The first requirement for political office is taking of annual ethics classes. We would never get away with the things they pull, why do they?
Politicians think they are ethical because they rationalize everything they do as ethical. In the political culture today, politicians get what they can for themselves and then justify. To them, ethics is relative. They say that unless they decide it’s unethical, it’s not. They decide what is right and what is wrong.
And then we wonder why young people in America have no ethics. Young people also think that ethics is relative; there is no right or wrong. Our media, political culture and educational forums do not practice nor enforce right and wrong anymore. If this attitude of no right or wrong continues we will be a country without a future.
There has always been a rule book in America, a strike zone, so to speak. Everyone knows the strike zone; we may be a little out of zone sometimes, but we have usually had a good idea of what is right and what is wrong. The liberal culture in America today, enforced by the liberal agenda has changed the zone, changed the definitions of right and wrong.
Ethics is not political correctness; doing the right thing is ethics. It is not ethical to pass a health care bill that will negatively effect millions of Americans for generations to come – before reading it. Although that is what the democrats in congress did!! It is not ethical to pass a health care bill that the majority of Americans did not want; and yet that is what our democrat leaders did. Not one republican voted for Obamacare. And then the democrat cowards justified their decision as ethical by telling us Obamcare is good for us and that we will like it once we get used to it. Ha!!!
We are headed into the primaries, step up America, vote your ethical consciences. You know better, you know right from wrong, these politicians up for reelection do not.
We need to show the self-serving, self-centered, selfish Washington bureaucrats that we mean business; we are tired of their charades and the games they play. They are elected for the purpose of public service – who gave them the authority to twist that and make careers….we did by not demanding term limits and not holding them accountable.
We hired them – so we can fire them. Just do it America, vote them out!!!
