One Question for my Public Servants

My stomach wrenches and the taste of bile rises in my throat when I think of the grotesque inhuman beast my government has become as it creates impossible laws for the people to live under while the political elites are exempted from the same laws and excused for lawless and lewd behavior. 

I have grown tired of speaking in desperation to my public servants only to be misunderstood and misrepresented in government.  Perhaps I've never been able to make clear my point and allowed my message to get lost in a sea of issues and political interests.  My request of my representatives is simple.

For clarity, let me start by telling you what I am NOT asking:
  • I am not asking for my public servant to prophesy about the future. I do not care what my representative thinks is going to happen as a result of current actions.  The predictive abilities of bureaucrats is well established as worthless and I'm not buying it.
  • I am not asking who is to blame, nor who will get the blame. Blame is a tool of the guilty and used to destroy people, not to find solutions.  And if blame is to come than it will come irregardless of any foundation in truth.
  • I don't want to hear excuses. We certainly know they exist. They are frivolous distraction and I don't have time to entertain even a word of it.
  • I do not want to hear about a means to an end or any such plan that will try and rationalize a compromise of principle for the sake of a greater good or an eventual win.
  • I don't want to hear anyone tell me how to win. I am too old for games and I do not like to gamble with matters of importance.  
What I AM asking is a single question.  It's a single question that I want my public servant to apply to every single issue and every single decision in every single minute of every single day that he or she is under my employ and in the service of the people of this land. Here is the question:

Without answering the questions that I am not asking, and regardless of any presupposed consequences, I'm asking
will you do what is right?
