Same here... actually have the feeling we belong in the same country... power really is the ultimate aphrodisiac... and as humans are... they can't be contented with what they have... they couldn't be second, they have to be first... one thing that bothers me is how they are able to deprive their own people, they vowed to serve, of the things that they own...

True, corruption is a major factor in the poverty of most countries. Even if aid is delivered, political leaders are the ones who decide what is done with the resources. It's as they say--Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

However, thinking about it, most countries that have fallen to such a state generally do not have much of a trusted government in the first place. I disagree that people have put their "trust" in a government that cannot even help its own people. It's merely that they cannot do anything to object. Who can think of the welfare of the general public when one's own life is constantly being driven to the brink of death (hunger, sickness, possible martial law, etc.) People are timid. I'm sure if the people of any nation wanted to, they could overthrow the current government and help their country's situation, but corruption would probably reinstate itself eventually anyways.

Shit my country USA government NOT the people is so damn corrupt it is insane. Fighting global wars based on lies which is killing our economy, gas is at a all time high as a result of this. We borrow heavily from China is now a debter country. Nobody in my country can rise against it because the propaganda machies(mainstream media) is dumbing us down to where we cant even think. Now that bush is about to leave Mccain is one of the front runners of the republicans this is truely sad that we have a lot of Americans supporting a policy that already failed us.

simply......

they were persuaded by the benefits they could acquire after attaining the position...
though evil minds doesn't really show up at first since they all have to be like our cute little puppies and stuff to get voted, etc.....there is a high probability that somehow greed could take over after....

then goes....political killings and stuff because of the misunderstandings of their false-trusted allies.....
it still continues...
as many politicians deem "money is power"..........so is "money could buy everything, even trust".......

lol......like they give people money on elections hence that the village people will vote him....
absurd really..
and the money of the town reserved for renovating inventories and building roads......haha^_^
though they will not packaged it all...
about 30%-50% go to their own account.....

gush...
but i still don't believe though that "money is the root of all evil."....rather i prefer.......
"greediness kills the mind".......

all i can say is

Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely
meaning
"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men."

the name of it but u might be able to guess it already.

I'm just thinking... why do all these political leaders
continue this? The public already placed their trust on
them to make the country better. Still, why do they keep
making the country they "promised" to make better worse?


Don't know the country, don't know the circumstance's, all I can say is do something about it, political leaders will screw over whoever as long as theres money involved, of course there going to lie to you to get money, and simply voting isn't going to change anything in a government where corruption runs deep. Take a note from John Locke!

The best part about corruption is when the poopie hits the fan, a few men walk away scot free and very, very rich. I imagine this is happening a lot in the states.
