Then the corruption will continue unabated and Romney another puppet.
“Then the corruption will continue unabated and Romney another puppet.”
History shows once large organizations are corrupted it is nearly impossible to eliminate the corruption. In the private sector corrupt companies decline, go into bankruptcy, and are liquidated (Enron for example). Corrupt governments keep stealing resources from the population until the economy collapses or a war ensues. Ultimately the economy collapses, or the country is defeated, and the political structure is rebuilt from scratch (Germany and Japan after WWII, or Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union).
I’m convinced the two party political system in the US has become throughly corrupted at the state and federal level as well as most mid size to large size cities. The banking system, the education system, the legal system, and many large corporations are also corrupt. The interconnected web of corruption and entrenched special interests is too large and powerful to be reformed. It will take the collapse of the currency and the economy before the system will be reformed or we will submit to dictatorship.
Furthermore, the election of 2010 demonstrated both political parties are in collusion. The everyday law abiding citizens of the nation, troubled about the direction of the country, organized themselves via the Tea Party to have a substantial impact on the selection of candidates and outcome of the election. The entrenched elites of both parties, academia, and the media did everything in their power to disparage these citizens and thwart their efforts. Once the concerned citizens succeeded in electing a Republican majority in the House, the Republican leadership successfully undermined the Tea Party agenda and went back to big government spending in collusion with the Democrat administration and Senate leadership.
Romney is already talking publicly about working with Democrats in Congress. It will be more of the same if he is elected.
