So it’s been about 24 hours now and my jaw is still dragging on the floor, well not really but in my mind it is. I am amazed like millions of folks around the world. WTF, probably where the first words that spilled out of most minds and mouths. Do you need to be American to be amazed, nope just anybody with a connection to the web or a Radio?
What Is Integrity
Integrity means being true to ourselves and being honest, upright, and decent in our dealings with others. When we are guided by integrity, our thoughts and words are in line with each other; our actions align with our principles. Our conduct speaks for us, more eloquently than words ever could. It becomes the basis for both reputation and self-respect. Integrity demands courage but delivers untroubled sleep.
Developing integrity requires internal honesty because we can’t be honest with others unless we are honest with ourselves. It requires self-awareness since we cannot accurately communicate what we do not know.
People of integrity can be counted on to stand up for what it right, even if it is unpopular, and to behave with honor even when there is no one around to see. Integrity allows other people to trust us because they know that we value our commitments and seek to live by them. It is one of the cornerstones of loving relationships and shared endeavors.
Among the most important people, we expect to act with integrity are politicians. For example, when politicians are campaigning for public office, they make many promises and claims about what they will do if they are elected. In general, candidates are elected precisely because of these claims, which make their integrity one of the most important characteristics. Unfortunately, though, politicians make a lot of claims on the campaign trail that they don’t always follow through on. This calls their integrity into question and seriously weakens their chances of being re-elected. So how do people become totally absent of integrity, honesty or morality?
When You No Longer Have Integrity
Are you born this way and somewhere along the way you snap and a monster comes out. And what happened to the expression “you can fool some of the people some of the time”.
Hillary and Bill snapped about 30 years ago it seems and has fooled enough people to not only occupy the most powerful job on the planet, get impeached in the process then have a partner in crime most likely end up as President again.
Are US voters that scared (hate to say it “stupid”) that they would vote a career criminal (sorry one that has escaped the bars so far) into the presidents job. There is enough content on you tube with proven facts of Hillary lying constantly.
If history repeats itself Hillary will be elected the President and the US will go through at least 4 years of the most corrupt, self serving Presidential administration in the history of politics. Or maybe the US voters will take a chance and vote for Trump and roll the dice.
Let the show begin.
