Most Americans Think The Government Is Corrupt


Authored by Mac Slavo via,

Americans may finally be waking up, even minimally. A majority of those living in the United States believe that the government is corrupt and unaccountable.

This brings to mind a quote:

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

-John Dahlberg Acton

That means that anytime you hand power to anyone, their morality will decrease as the desire to control others increases. No one cedes power willingly either. If we have learned anything from 2020 it’s that those in power or authority figures are not in it for us, but themselves.

Seventy-three percent of Americans say that elected officials do not face “serious consequences” for misconduct, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

A closer look reveals that a mere 21 percent of those leaning Democrat and 32 percent of Republicans believe there is some basic justice for delinquent politicians.

This is not the only issue where US liberals and conservatives almost reach a consensus.

Seventy percent of US citizens don’t think the government is “open and transparent,” while 60 percent of both Republicans and Democrats believe that judges aren’t free from the influence of parties and politicians.


However, Americans still think reform is the answer. It’s not. Not allowing others to have power over you is the answer. That means once the system falls (and it will) we replace it with nothing. No more masters and no more slaves.  The good news though, is that some Americans are at least finally understanding that corruption is inevitable in every government under any “established rule” over others.

It’s time to figure it out. In fact, it’s past time. We all need to stand up, unite, and stop allowing other people to steal from us, dictate to us, start wars, and use order followers to enforce the “laws.” We don’t need them. They need us. Once we withdraw our consent to be governed (which means controlled) it’s over. We are not their property or their slaves. We all need to realize this quickly.


  1. “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” -John Dahlberg Acton

    What we see in China is that the centralized power is most easily corrupted by everyone below the set up system of payouts. Government contractors, schools and universities (and government officials in each province and city) are able to get money for deals they either don’t make or they rip off the government itself. Buildings are constructed quickly and shoddily, and start falling apart soon after construction; and schools and colleges get money based upon how many students pass their curriculum, not the quality of education the schools are producing. The cost of policing centralized payout system is entirely too costly, and those who regulate and police it are subject to corruption and payoffs.
    This is more evidence of how our federalists were absolute geniuses in setting up decentralization with the constitution & bill of rights that prevents abuse of power, and helps us understand why a world government would be corrupt at a planetary level.
    It doesn’t make sense to have a stateless society, but centralized power in the USA is the quickest path to create the failures that China is experiencing right now, because of the flexing of the centralized power of Xi Jinping as premiere of China. His own people are ripping off that government like crazy.

  2. This is news?
    Here in California Governor Noisome appointed Xavier Basura to succeed Kamala Harris and he is a worthy successor.
    kammie decided that there was no need to prosecute One West Bank for illegally foreclosing on more than 1,000 California home owners despite the unanimous recommendation of her staff.
    One West fabricated ( Forged) the deeds of trust and other documents and got caught red handed.
    And a thousand plus California Families had their homes stolen.
    Basura has studiously ignored what’s going on at CalPers, the State Pension Fund since he was appointed.
    And it’s ugly, and very well documented in the press.
    It’s not a surprise, he passed the bar and then put his license on an inactive status while he served in the State Legislature for 20 years, he has never practiced law.
    His job, like Kammie’s was, is to make sure no one rocks the boat.

    And it’s even worse at the Federal level.
