Moral Turpitude and our Government

Here’s one for the men and women currently sitting in Congress;

Moral Turpitude: The concept of moral turpitude escapes precise definition, but has been described as an "act of baseness, vileness or depravity in the private and social duties which a man owes to his fellowmen or to society in general, contrary to the accepted and customary rule of right and duty between man and man." The specific acts that such a concept includes have varied over time, but I feel that the definition could be applied to ‘way’ Americans are feeling right now as regards the kind of treatment they have received from the Federal government, organized unions and Wall Street. Something sure is wrong!

Ladies and gentlemen of the Congress, please decide who you are working for and then let us know. The feeling in this country right at the moment seems to be full of tension; perhaps not unlike the atmosphere that existed before the last Civil War. If you cannot lead us, as a group of states that are united, then please step aside and let us go our separate ways. For, I’ll tell you, that no country can long endure the crushing levels of debt and insecurity that your poorly thought out policies have fomented over the past three years.
