United States of America
I rate it at a 0
The reason being that the Government no longer answers to the people it was originaly put into place to protect, especially with the current
Administration. The entire process is set up now to make the rich people get richer and the poor to stay poor, and die miserable at that.
The fact also that Government is non-accountable for it's actions, unless something majorly drastic happens, and some intelligent person jumps into
the mix and takes advantage of the opportunity to make a change while grasping power for themselves, which more often than not becomes detrimental to
us as well, because they are seeking power not for the betterment of mankind, but for their career and wallet.
After a certain level of power being achieved by any representative of Government, the accountibility just is not there, it is more the fact that the
people within Government watch for those they perceive as future or potential enemies, and thereby set up those individuals to get caught, and make it
look like the "accountibility" is in place and that "one person" was caught doing something naughty, kind of like the patsy or fall guy scenario.
On top of this, there's also no recourse for the American citizens to throw the politicians out of office, without a major drama, through the
Impeachment Process, which can take up to a year or more, because once the process begins, the Administration begins shuffling papers to kill the
process through many thousands of papercuts, to cover their behind as well as to fight it.
Personally, the old days of marching on the politicians office, no matter the position, and grabbing them and tarring and feathering them needs to be
reinstated, and running them out of town on a rail.

Power to the people, to self-govern through the system of checks and balances, and representing themselves, all politicians should work for free, with
exception to a set and reasonable level of housing costs along with food, and it should be extremely accountable where every single penny a politician
spends, private, work related, or whatever is pasted in the newspaper, somewhere with large bold letters, with their home and work phone number, and
Oh, and they do not deserve to vote for their own pay raises, ever.
I wish I got to vote for My pay raise every six months. Wow, that must be nice.
