Transparency in government and real estate

Transparency is a good thing.

I’ve noted before how my company’s commissions are broken down. As a buyer and a seller, the expectation is that all money being moved around between the buyer and seller be shown on the HUD-1 form (PDF). Granted, the HUD can be confusing, but at least it’s all there in plain sight.

Why are there only three candidates in the presidential campaign who have embraced transparency and accountability in government? Why not hold government to the same standards as the rest of us?

    ’cause they make the rules and they think they don’t apply to them. Ridiculous, if you ask me.
