Archives For corruption

All this government shutdown has shown me is how ridiculously screwed up the political sector is. Instead of backing the Democrats who are systematically sabotaging our economy for their own personal gain in 2016, we ought to insist upon removing these politicians and replacing them with people of principles and integrity.  We ought to insist on downsizing the government so it won’t be in a position to sabotage its own people again. And while many might say it is the Republicans in the Houses fault, that is only half the story and besides the point. The House is supposed to be the peoples part of the government. We are the ones who are supposed to dictate terms and the budget not the president more concerned with leaving his legacy (for good or bad).

Corruptissma republica plumirae leges. (In the most corrupt republic, the laws are most numerous.)
