As I pointed out in yesterday's post, the whole attorney general firing scandal is a dead-end. Simply put, feel free to complain about it, but don't you dare suggest a solution.
Probably the best example of a similar scandal was Bill Clinton's last minute pardons before he left office. The fact is that he took money for his presidential library in order to issue some of those pardons. We can all agree what he did was highly unethical.
But if we look at it as a problem, what would the solution be? We could amend the Constitution to limit or eliminate the presidential pardon power.
If we limit pardons by giving Congress oversight, what do we gain? Congress is not known for its high ethical standards.
If we eliminate the presidential pardon power, what happens when the court system makes a glaring mistake? Sorry, we will just have to live with it.
Again, we come back to a problem without a solution, or where the solutions are worse than the problem itself.
But if you absolutely positively MUST have a solution to the problem, it is really quite simple: Vote for ethical politicians! Our government does not, and should not, run on auto-pilot. Take responsibility for YOUR VOTE! If you vote for unethical politicians, don't blame the government, because YOU made it!
