Answer, no we should not. Ethics, the reason why they choose ethics is because it means they don't have to act they only have to pretend to be good and talk above those around them. Ethics: moral principles that govern a person's or group's behavior
the branch of knowledge that deals with moral principles. These definitions prove it is to think or say, nothing about actions.
Morals on the other hand means to do the right thing. Moral: concerned with the principles of right and wrong behavior and the goodness or badness of human character:
a lesson, especially one concerning what is right or prudent, that can be derived from a story, a piece of information, or an experience. The words; right and wrong behavior and an experience. These both prove action behind the definition or meaning. When ever would you expect to hear any Government official say anything about morality? Never, this would mean that they then could be held accountable.
We have yet to see anything that would show any amount of accountability from the White House, IRS, Attorney General, or any other office in the federal government for quite some time. The last time we had a true leader that stood against the expansion of the Government and it's ever expanding budget was President Calvin Coolidge and before him was President Cleveland. They were willing to become the moral balance against an ever encroaching government expansion. Even the late great Kennedy and Regan did not do these things.
When we hear the government discussing what is proper and ethical, remember that they would never prove that which they judge on. We must hold them to a new level of accountability and we can not allow them to take over this level of accountability. We the People must keep this power for ourselves and stay vigilant. Much like the horrid actions of the Benghazi attack, we must never allow the officials to get away with these kinds of actions or mis-actions. My children even learn right from wrong and that their are consequences for any wrong doings on their cartoons, in school and most of all in our home. Why then should we hold our elected officials at a lower regard than our little children? It is time to expect the level of accountability from them that they claim to hold themselves at.
