Political. Legal. ETHICAL
UPDATE 2/14/2020. The word is ETHICS. Ethics are a moral standard beyond what is merely legal. Many things may be perfectly legal, but UNETHICAL. We need Legislation written REQUIRING MANDATORY ETHICS CERTIFICATION for anyone intending to running for Elected Office to even get on the Ballot.
Ethics are a standard of behavior that is Self-Governing, Self-Monitoring & Self-Policing our own behavior as individuals, not to sit in judgment of others. Laws are only applicable when people cannot or will not govern their own individual behaviors.
The American People have a right to EXPECT our Elected Officials to not only function within the limits of the Law, but to exemplify a model of behavior for the rest of the country to follow.
The Partisan Politics that have gripped the Republican party has this country more divided than ever, turning a blind eye to a Bully who perjures himself in public on a regular basis.
In the current political climate with high ranking government officials in the Trump Administration having already been convicted of many things, including Perjury & Obstruction of Justice, why are lawmakers arguing points of Law?
Is it a Misdemeanor?
Is it a Felony??
