    Which accountability rules should we teach our children?

    Teaching children about choices and consequences as early as possible is a must. As parents we must consistently hold them accountable for the choices that they make. With consistent practice, they internalize that all choices (whether good or bad) have consequences. They also learn to make more good choices than bad, knowing that the consequences for good choices are much more favorable.

    Apparently there are no accountability rules any longer unless you happen to be a free market American Capitalist with a passion for freedom and individual rights. The government seems to do what it wishes to do regardless of the law. Obama violates the US Constitution more often than he golfs. Congress is too busy trading stocks on inside information whilst passing new laws making tougher insider trading laws on the private individual capitalists.

    The Executive branch is busy putting people in jail for violating non-existent foreign laws and US wetlands laws. For instance, the commonly known Honduran law prohibiting against shipping lobster in plastic instead of cardboard...unfortunately one American businessman did not know that and the US prosectors did not care that Honduras had long ago repealed the law, resulting in an honest hardworking businessman being label a felon and spending 6 years in prison.

    Of course the government isn't accountable in the case of the EPA taking legal action against a couple who filled in THEIR PRIVATE PROPERTY after the federal government accidentally flooded their land. And yet the EPA is threatening these people.

    Accountability predicated on the dictates espoused by Thomas Jefferson do not bode well for government officials today. Perhaps it is that time once again to take action in order to re-establish order and accountability from elected officials, because it is evident that they have either lost their moral compass or fail to understand the nature of physics does not permit the tail to wag the dog.
