Contributions: A new Term for Corruption

SENATE LEADERWhen elected officials accept ‘contributions’ from lobbyists and special interest groups, it is obvious that they are doing so with the attempt and intentions to bribe/influence the decision making of the recipient!

       This is only Common Sense!!!

What about those pork barrel earmarked projects?? Why has it gotten to the point that none of these “elected” ones can make a decision based on what is in the best interest of We The People  as a whole, not just those in a small district of the nation that they represent? Of course they will change their minds if a little “pork chop’ is thrown their way, say maybe a little contribution of a few million tax payer dollars with a little earmark for their area! newbribe1

I understand the difficulty it must be to get that many different people to agree on an issue, but to disgrace themselves by accepting kick backs and ‘holding out’ on their votes because they want something in return is just a sorry ass way to represent us.blago1-r

When are Americans going to stand up and demand that this corruption of our government stop?? Have our leaders totally lost all ethics and morals and have they TOTALLY forgotten the code of ethics that they swore to uphold? Or the fact that they OWE accountability and respect to We The People that voted their sorry butts into office to begin with?

  • The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first. -Thomas Jefferson
  • Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have … The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases.Thomas Jefferson

CODE OF ETHICS FOR GOVERNMENT SERVICE

Any person in Government service should:

1. Put loyalty to the highest moral principals and to country above loyalty to Government persons, party, or department.

2. Uphold the Constitution, laws, and legal regulations of the United States and of all governments therein and never be a party to their evasion.

3. Give a full day’s labor for a full day’s pay; giving to the performance of his duties his earnest effort and best thought.

4. Seek to find and employ more efficient and economical ways of getting tasks accomplished.

5. Never discriminate unfairly by the dispensing of special favors or privileges to anyone, whether for remuneration or not; and never accept for himself or his family, favors or benefits under circumstances which might be construed by reasonable persons as influencing the performance of his governmental duties.

6. Make no private promises of any kind binding upon the duties of office, since a Government employee has no private word which can be binding on public duty.

7. Engage in no business with the Government, either directly or indirectly which is inconsistent with the conscientious performance of his governmental duties.

8. Never use any information coming to him confidentially in the performance of governmental duties as a means for making private profit.

9. Expose corruption wherever discovered.

10. Uphold these principles, ever conscious that public office is a public trust.

    Thank you for your comment. Yes, We The People are at the breaking point. The corruption and Greed must stop. We are fortunate that election time is just around the corner and we can begin voting out those greedy dogs with no ethics that care nothing about us.
    I too thank all our soldiers past, current and future for their loyalty to We The People and our CONSTITUTION.

  3. Thanks M2. I think most of those in the house and in congress need to be brought up on ETHICS charges!!! This crap has got to stop!
    The politically correct term is CORRUPTION, EVASION, DISCRIMINATION, BREACH OF PUBLIC TRUST, and Loyalty to oneself and not to the people they represent.

    5. Never discriminate unfairly by the dispensing of special favors or privileges to anyone, whether for remuneration or not; and never accept for himself or his family, favors or benefits under circumstances which might be construed by reasonable persons as influencing the performance of his governmental duties.

    6. Make no private promises of any kind binding upon the duties of office, since a Government employee has no private word which can be binding on public duty.
