Government morality

Government morality

Better still, let's talk about federal government immorality.

Those of us that know the score about what's going on in our government (and far too many don't) clearly see there are too many things taking place that just don't add up to being ethically or morally correct.

Since the beginning of time (so to speak) politics in government has been known to be a dirty business. However, I contend that, throughout this country's history, it has never been as bad as it is today in lacking ethical behavior and moral standards of right and wrong.

Here's what I would like readers to think about.

When we think of scandals and corruption in our current government which has control of two thirds of the legislative/administrative process, namely the Democrat Party, we tend to look at the top players like Obama, Biden, Holder, Sebelius, Pelosi, Reid and a number of others. And, well we should look at the top players but what about the thousands upon thousands of federal workers taking orders from their superiors and carrying them out no matter what it is?

Far and away, all too many in our federal government are carrying out agendas, programs, made-up mandates and regulations, etc., coming from the top that are just ethically and morally wrong. That is not to say all at the federal level need to be questioned.

It seems to me, many with jobs paid by taxes of hardworking Americans, have a mind set that there may be biblical standards of right and wrong, but in government all of that doesn't count because it's the world of government and politics. Unfortunately, we live in a world today where there is far too much politics in our government and where there are Christian standards set aside for man-made moral standards.

For example, how many workers were involved in the "Fast and Furious" scandal of selling, behind the scenes, thousands of guns to Mexican drug cartels that led to the deaths of two Americans and hundreds of Mexicans and the goal, in all of this, was to politicize gun control measures back in the states? Did those federal employees who carried out orders think twice about what they were doing? In today's government, probably not.

What about the IRS targeting conservatives, even Christian groups that may have a different view than Obama, while at the same time giving tax-exempt status to Obama's liberal groups? The lies that followed and coverups in this historical scandal, are unprecedented in our history, and many below the top dogs participated.

Speaking of ethics and morality, none worse than the implementation of Obamacare with its many anti-religious mandates like taxpayer money for birth control, even abortions. How many readers think the drug RU 486, which aborts unborn babies, is moral? What about the many federal workers involved under anti-religious HHS Kathleen Sebelius to implement a disastrous law that also involves the corrupt IRS that we can no longer trust?

There is no global warming for 15 years, yet hundreds, maybe thousands of EPA workers are dreaming up all kinds of regulations to halt standard development of energy resources in order to change our economy into a so-called "green" one no matter how many companies have failed as they got stimulus tax money because they supported Obama's election in 2008.

There are probably endless cases of scandalous impropriety where those at the top involve thousands at the bottom and in some cases those at the bottom are doing the initiating themselves knowing what the top wants.
