When the 13 original colonies decided to discuss creating their own nation, did they throw out their morals along the way?
Killing their fellow countrymen.
Then, as they discussed creation of a nation, they had to compromise on the first laws of the nation.
Was it wrong to be immoral for the sake of creating a new nation?
Slavery illegal. Would the US exist if that position was not flexible?
As a person, we make our moral choices.
When a group gets together, with no consensus for any rules, is just anarchy.
I for one admit going against my better judgment. On a personal level, its an easy choice. On a group level, its not easy.
Politicians represent the people. A truly immoral issue might force a pol to choose to go against, but for a nation, the ugly choice sometimes is the choice of two evils.
Speaking of morality, most candidates for office are immoral and the voters hold their nose, close their eyes, and squeeze their ---------- and vote against conscience.
