How do you think politicians define ethics?

Why does their definition seem different then the way we as parents define ethics?

  • i dont think they understand ethics. period. doesnt matter if they are repub or demo or indie or whatever. think about it-the world they live in is SO different that the everyday world we live in. i think it is so easy to become out of touch with normality. usually for someone to be in the spotlight politically, that means they have been a politician for quiet some time. the longer they are in that "world of politicians" the harder it is for them to see the blurry line of ethics.

  • Some seem to think whatever they can get away with is "ethical".

  • I agree with ivelostmyself... it's hard for a pollitician to have ethics... our country is so diverse, and they are trying to keep everyone happy. They can have a feeling about something and it's going to piss someone off, so they kinda have to throw ethics out that window and do whatever they have to, to stay in office...

  • Many politician's definition of ethics means, "Whatever I can get away with without being caught" the same as there are many parents whose code of ethics consist of, "Do as I say not as I do." It should be about setting an example in both respects...unfortunately that is not always the case.

  • LOL. You said politician and ethics in the same sentence.

  • They don't have any ethics. Politician and ethical cannot go together. They are polar opposites.
