politicians and morality

Politicians while running for government office tend to say things that appeal to the morality to specific groups that they feel will give them the most votes while shunning and sometimes outright puts those groups down.  The politicians would have us believe that their sense of morality is our morality for our government.

The groups that politicians tend to ignore or put down are part of their voter base as well and what they are doing is a form of bullying by belittling their desire to be part of the process.  In some venues, they are an influential part of the voter base which means that they need to put their morality aside if they want to get elected.

The thing is, we each have our own sense of morality that may be different than that of the politicians and the politicians know that and it is why they change their tune when then get elected.  Some do try to do what they believe while others do end up doing things that go against their campaigning, when it comes to morality.

There are some people who believe that there is no separation of church and state where the U.S. Constitution does not have the exact phrase "separation of church and state" even though there are provisions prohibiting the union of the two.  Granted we cannot totally take our belief systems out of our daily lives which means some of the beliefs will spill over into our government even if it is inadvertently.

There are some people who would take a specific part of a religious text and through it in peoples faces, what they will not show is, the full text of the religous text which also includes a bunch of things that society considers normal and many politican past and present pursue as if it was a badge of honor instead of adhering to the text which goes against what they are doing.

I would like to know where the politicians get their data on taxes

Given that some politicians think that giving tax cuts to the richest 2 percent of the U.S. population equates to job growth in the U.S. I would like to know where this mentality comes from?  For many years there have been tax cuts in place for the richest in the nation, yet the jobs have been leaving the country or have been cut totally due to the mentality that there is higher profit if jobs are dealt in this way.

If there are to be continued tax cuts to the wealthiest of our citizens we need them to show that the mentality that has lead to the tax cuts is for real by actually creating the jobs that they have lead the politician to believe would happen.

the recent suicides due to bullying in the public eye

The recent suicides in the gay community that have happened due to the individuals being bullied, shows how intolerant individuals can be towards individuals that are different than them, especially when the difference is something like sexual preference. Our society has shown through the use of written language that homosexuality has been around for thousands of years and that it wasn't liked even then. the problem is that people are using such texts to justify attacking and sometimes killing individuals that identify themselves as gay, even though some of the texts also say that attacking and killing goes against the belief systems

when it comes to beliefs, we as a society have to live up to those beliefs that we are capable of living up to rather than picking and choosing which beliefs to live up to.
