Petitioning Representative Paul Cook and 19 others

Require a Congressional Code of Ethics regarding debate, discussion and public messages.


This is not a partisan issue, it is a conduct issue for all Congressional members.

As citizens of the United States we have the right to expect our leaders to set the bar high on conduct and skills that demonstrate to our children, our nation, and the world that we can be passionate, articulate and strong about our ideas in a free productive democracy.

And that our government has the ability to resolve differences and accomplish our goals in a skillful and admirable manner without the use of divisive and inflammatory behavior such as name-calling, insulting, and bullying their colleagues and/or the public with whom they may disagree or want to gain support.

Of utmost importance is that our leaders demonstrate the ability to problem solve productively without creating an atmosphere of fear, hate, intolerance or violent intent among themselves and in our nation. 

With each signature here a copy of this petition will be sent to Congressional leaders in the Senate and the House, and with no preference to party affiliation.
