An attempt should be made to insure the safety of all Americans against the predations of those who would seek to use and or abuse the power and authority of elected office to intentionally or unintentionally mislead the governed about the truth of policies or activities in government affairs that would literally have a direct affect upon the lives of all Americans. Americans, with the exception of LEGITIMATE National Security Issues, should be kept apprised of ALL TRUE FACTS surrounding ALL issues germane to the efficient management of the government for which ALL Americans employ, elect and pay taxes for the operation thereof. Should those in office, or running for office, be found guilty of TRUE perjury, a minimum 2 year prison sentence should be mandated.

"For example, one recent study found that ethically questionable behavior produces less condemnation when it leads to a positive outcome, even if the outcome is entirely due to chance. In their pioneering work on the issue, Jonathan Baron and John Hershey found that when people were asked about the quality of a medical decision, they said the thinking behind the decision was better when they were told the decision led to a positive outcome."
