America has a corrupt political system that should worry every single believer in democracy anywhere in the world.
The corrupt political American system can be boiled down to three simple points:
- Rich millionairs pay money to politicians to do what they want. Corrupt politicians accept this money, grow rich, and do exactly as the money-people tell them to do.
- Rich millionaires pay money to the election campaigns of corrupt politicians, so the politician will follow the will of the donor. Not of the voters. Recent examples are Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton.
- Elections are corrupt. It is the candidate who pay the party bosses who decides who the delegates will be.
Politically, the United States is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. It takes a man with the caliber of Donald Trump to change it from the bottom up.
