the serious ethical problems within government

   it doesn't take an enormous amount of cognition to see that governement has slowly, but
surely alienated the american public. this lack of integrity and personal responsibility has become systemic since the clinton administration and is gowing in severity as we speak.
   it would be comforting to know that the very people that we elect have our best interests set
as their main priorities while in office. since laws that frequently pass both houses never have
the majority support of the public some other process may be essential to have what our founding fathers expected of this republic. maybe it's time for referendums on important issues
such as health care and corporate bailouts, and abortion. how can this government be reprsentative if everyone is not represented?
