Morals matter most

I don't care so much about the organization or ideology of a government as long as it is not oppressive; responsible, stable, fair, and also morally robust.

I have my own preference of a form of government, regardless of morality

I have my own preference for government that I apply in all cases, regardless of my existing moral beliefs or conscious, purposeful, informed lack thereof (meaning lack of moral beliefs by choice).

Everyone has different morals.

Yes, you're right. Why? Is there a discrepancy I'm unaware of?

Sorry, I missed the please state your reasons part. I believe morality and experience are the most important characteristics of a leader. A leader without morals is likely to lead people into his immorality.

Our government is not immoral. Those in government can be. They, like CEOs on Wall Street & school-teachers on Main Street, are products of our society. If morals have deteriorated within our society (a given), then it will reflect how the vast majority think & act. So, it's impossible to find a profession without immoral individuals within it.
