For years many people have made fun of curling with its stones and sweepers.

But I did a little research and maybe our elected officials could take a page out of the curling rule book.

Below is the Code of Ethics for Curling Participants.

Curler’s Code of Ethics

I will play the game with a spirit of good sportsmanship.

I will conduct myself in an honorable manner both on and off the ice.

I will never knowingly break a rule, but if I do, I will divulge the breach.

I will take no action that could be interpreted as an attempt to intimidate or demean my opponents, teammates or officials

I will interpret the rules in an impartial manner, always keeping in mind that the purpose of the rules is to ensure that the game is played in an orderly and fair manner.

I will humbly accept any penalty that the governing body at any level of curling deems appropriate, if I am found in violation of the code of ethics or rules of the game

Just think how much better off we would be if those in office were held to the same standards.

As Thomas Jefferson once said “When a man assumes a public trust he should consider himself a public property”

Unfortunately today we have too few elected officials who do.

Since we cannot trust them to govern themselves we once again say

It's Time For A Political Pre-Nup

Or maybe we should only elect curlers
