both yourself and rickymouse, have valid points for law. how about this.
governmental fairness and transparency laws
1)no politician or close family member may work for any company or corporation or subsidiaries of the company or corporation affected by any bill
proposed or voted on by the politician. for the politician as well as spouse or significant other for life, for close family for a period of no less
than 10 years.
as stated by Magister
2) no member of a governmental ruling body (such as the FDA for example), or close family member shall have worked for, currently works for, or
work for in the future any company, corporation or their subsidiaries that the controlling body is in place over.
That way the politician would have no conflict of interest and no incentive to vote one way or another. This would
prevent some of the corruption in politics when politicians are secretly offered jobs to vote (one way or another) on bills.
again this is to insure no conflicts of interest, between those governing bodies and those they are supposed to be governing over. sadly yet again
this is something that seems to occur way too often, thus putting said governing bodies in the pockets and control of those they are supposed to be
3) no currant or past member of the military, or their close family may work for a military supplier, research development company or corporation,
or any other company or corporation that deals with the military or their subsidiaries, for any more salaries, perks, or special offers, than they
would have received as a member of the military. in the case of close family this would be applied as for the serving member. for the serving member,
spouse or significant other this would be permanent, for close family members this would be for a period of no less than 10 years past the date the
serving member left military service.
another seemingly abused thing, military service personnel going to work for contractors and research firms, normally as "consultants", for high
pay, especially those service personnel that had something to do with procurement responsibilities. yet at the same time it is perfectly
understandable that an ex military consultant working for these companies can be a very good thing as they have intimate knowledge of what the
military may need, as such allowment needs to be made that they could do that while at the same time limiting the possibility of abuse, and conflict
4) any politician, or government worker, including but not limited to controlling bodies or military service personal involved at any time with
approvals and or procurement of equipment and supplies. and their close family shall have transparent financial status. that is any and ALL financial
transactions, trusts, investments and properties including foreign transactions, accounts, investments, trusts and properties etc held by these people
MUST be submitted to at time of taking the position to (whatever the proper authority in control of this) as well can be checked at any time by a
competent authority, to be sure there is no graft or other suspicious activity taking place. any findings to be held by said competent authorities as
private and confidential, unless something untoward or suspicious is uncovered, or upon proper order for an investigation and then only be released to
proper investigative personnel.
5 after this moment any material within a bill to be passed, must deal DIRECTLY with the bill in question, no adding unrelated material within it.
also ALL bills must be COMPLETELY read and a full understanding of what all the bill pertains to BEFORE any vote can take place, ample time shall be
given before any vote to insure of this. non compliance of reading said material before hand means an immediate eviction from the position and a new
vote to replace that person. all bills must be written in such a way that their can be no mistake about it's intents and purposes. it must also be
easily read and understood by a layman.
