A cleaner bill would certainly help out the situation.

I agree with that. The only real positive things I can say about Bush Jr. is I think he did the right thing on terrorism (even Obama is following suit), and his minor tax cuts were small but a help. Other than that, he was an empty suit, scared of his own shadow and afraid to do the right thing.
But you're wrong about Reagan. If it hadn't been for him, the economy would have tanked long before and we'd be kissing Soviet ass. The economy tanked because of the Community Reinvestment Act. It was initiated by Carter (our worst President in history--until our current Carter II showed up), doubled-down by Clinton and his Attorney General, Janet Reno, who used threats of legal action to pressure banks to make loans to unqualified borrowers. Obama is an apostle of the radical, near anarchist, Saul Alinsky and the Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis he inspired. Obama even taught classes based on his philosophy and his book, Rules for Radicals.

Make that "a transition from monarchy to oligarchy" and you've pretty much got that one right. I don't know how "democracy" ever became an ideal in this country, it didn't start out that way. Our founders were more afraid of it than a monarchy. Democracy is nothing but two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for lunch, i.e. mob rule.
Moral turpitude is a legal concept in the United States that refers to "conduct that is considered contrary to community standards of justice, honesty or good morals."
The concept of moral turpitude escapes precise definition but has been described as an "act of baseness, vileness or depravity in the private and social duties which a man owes to his fellowmen, or to society in general, contrary to the accepted and customary rule of right and duty between man and man."  Until recent times, a man engaged in homosexual behavior was considered engaging 'criminal behavior involving moral turpitude'.  The classification of a crime or other conduct as constituting moral turpitude has significance in several areas of law. First, prior conviction of a crime of moral turpitude (or in some jurisdictions, moral turpitude conduct, even without a conviction) is considered to have a bearing on the honesty of a witness and may be used for purposes of witness impeachment.  Second, moral turpitude offenses may be grounds to deny or revoke a professional license such as a teaching credential,  license to practice law,  or other licensed profession. Third, it is of great importance for immigration purposes, as only those offenses which are defined as involving moral turpitude are considered bars to immigration into the U.S.
