Ethics laws prohibit government employees from holding certain investments in their portfolios and cannot accept a meal when attending meetings. Even the appearance of impropriety is subject to discipline. I cannot do business with the government if my corporation is set up a certain way. Our nation has gone out of ourway to ensure one sector of the population doesn't have more influence than another. So why should the vice president and president be allowed to do as they please with no oversight? Because there is a faction in this country who truly believe the man in the WH is the second coming. He even said he was the chosen one. Sure, he's "joking." Just know that he only values you when you can give him praise or line his pockets. If you disagree, you are subject to schoolyard ridicule. That is your god now.
