Conflict of Interest: Boss vs. Company

cscalise
When there is a conflict of interest between what your boss wants, and what you know to be best for the Company, how do you manage?
I am a talented IT manager for a company where my boss has decided that he is going to blackmail the President of the company into giving him more budget and resources by letting systems fail. I cannot in good conscious let this happen, and even though we are understaffed I have been picking up the slack. That has gone against the wishes of my boss. I have worked for two years developing a core business system on a new network infrastructure. I take great pride in what I do and I feel that my reputation is at stake. I know that I need to move on, because it is an impossible situation. The problem is that I know that noone will maintain either the system or the infrastructure and it will be only a matter of time until there are critical failures. Any advise from anyone that has been in similiar situations would be helpful.
