In this video, psyjax refutes the concept that we all have an inborn sense of right and wrong and that this proves the existence of God.

Absolute Morals are BS (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOLZTWtP6ck)

So, look at the "morals' of the current government, Especially the executive branch. They go by the morals of the bottom line. "whoever gives me more money gets the most attention. and the most votes.
How do we fit that in to "do no harm," or Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
The government as it exists needs to be abolished and reformed according to the constitution. But, whom do we trust to do that?

It's a case of the variant of the golden rule:

He who has the gold makes the rules. . . .
