The key word for this discussion is RESPONSIBILITY. That word was already brought up and discussed in relation to citizens on the Constitution Faults Freedom page http://occupy…….. . But when the power of citizens is concentrated in representatives, it should be clear that responsibility must also be raised.

There is no better example of corruption in government than for elected officials to pass all kind of restrictive laws, and then harshly apply them to citizens, but then absolve themselves from the same laws. Couldn't happen in the "good ol' U.S.A. right? Then how do we explain that more citizens are in jail in the U.S. than in ALL of Europe combined! How do we explain that legislators are EXEMPT from so many laws?

There was a post that addressed this, suggesting that we make: "law makers and enforcers DOUBLY accountable to ALL laws at maximum penalty." How about TRIPPLE! Four times maybe? Not in the U.S. government. If an agency executive totally fails to enforce the rules for that agency, we don't even reduce their severance pay and pension. SCOTT FREE! with big rewards.

Please bring some insight into logical ways to approach this.
