LEADERSHIP – MISSING IN AMERICA!
I was raised and educated to accept and believe that the leaders of the United States of America met every one of the definitions I have listed below. Read these definitions as carefully as I have and try to answers some specific questions that follow.
The adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.
The quality or fact of being honest, upright, fair, truthful, sincere, or frank with freedom from deceit or fraud.
Ethical principles it takes to do what is right when it may cost more than you are willing to pay. Who you are and what you do when no one is looking.
Fundamental principles of right conduct rather than legalities.
Important beliefs. Not all are ethical, some are neutral or non-ethical.
The action taken to carry out the values, ethics and morals that you believe in. Consistency between what you say you will do and what you actually do. Putting the ethics into action, defines, builds, or breaks your reputation.
Generals and Admirals were always the perfect example of leaders. Respect was earned with performance. Recent actions by some of these military leaders has been embarrassing. Do you feel they have been honest, moral, ethical and earned respect for their character?
Our President stands before us daily and lies, distorts with his own words, positions he both approves and disapproves depending on when he was recorded. Do you believe his actions are honest and ethical? I do not.
We have Congress Persons who answer the same questions with opposing views depending on political gain and re-election on the same day. Do you feel that we have even one Congress Person who is honest or has any moral character? I do not.
Recent actions by government agencies like the State Department, Internal Revenue Service, Justice Department and the Intelligence groups is unlawful and shameful. These people would not know what the truth is and flaunt their power with deceit and lies. Do you respect them? I don’t’.
Our Supreme Court has become a court of political beliefs rather than resolving the destruction of our Constitution and Bill of Rights by minority zealots who are destroying our freedoms at warp speed. Do you feel they follow the law or their political beliefs?
I truly believe something has happened to our leaders and they have developed a new set of rules that I don’t like them. Do you?

Do me a favor and sit down and make a list of current living American leaders that you feel meet all of these requirements 100% of the time. I have tried hard to find anyone in government that qualify’s.
I do expect to get comments that no one in America can meet all of these requirements and I agree that none do before you waste your and my time trying. The sad part is that they all swore on the bible that they are moral, honest, ethical and have the values and character that meet these 100% of these requirements. We know they are lying but we just keep electing them anyway for some goofy reason. Americas values disappeared when the lawyers took over the leadership a long time ago and we just ignore the moral decay and normal. WHY?
