I don't no who the previous posters are but I do no this. You cannot keep bashing our Nation and expect it to stand for anything. If you don't
like wants going on either leave or make your voices known in our political structure.
Since my post was the first to suggest U.S, corruption involved, I assume that you were referring to me. I defend the PEOPLE of this country all of
the time and I'm quite proud of many of our accomplishments over the past century. I personally feel that because of our diversity and freedom, we
are the greatest example of modern civilization in the world today, however... corruption and evil are two characteristics of humanity that have
haunted us since we rose up on two legs and started naming things.
ALL governments need to be scrutinized and questioned constantly. The fact that we've had the right to question the actions of our government is one
of the primary reasons that we are a strong as we are now. We NEED to question our government at every turn, because that's the only way that we can
keep our people free. Remember, "We the People" are supposed to be in control... not a handful of parasites who seek only to serve themselves.
"Great men do not seek power, they have power thrust upon them."
I think it's safe to assume that few if ANY of those keeping our bureaucracy running smoothly had their responsibilities "thrust" upon them. It's
also safe to assume that most of them are fairly ambitious types... Now tell me that they don't need tight leashes lol.
