If things continue going this way, things can only get worse not better, unfortunately once that corruption starts to get a hold it is very hard to eradicate it, because that requires an inner change in the very souls of the people, their hearts and minds.
Absolutely. I've been saying for a long time how corrupt our government is, particularly Washington. There are lobbyists under every rock in Washington buying votes and Legislators under every rock selling their votes. You can't vote the corruption out anymore because the ruling elites are the ones that pick the candidates. The voting sheeple only select whichever candidate the sheeple prefer among the candidates picked by the ruling elites.

I couldn’t agree more. I am absolutely sickened by the rampant corruption in this country; as evidenced by the lack of enforcement of our immigration laws, both at the employer and employee levels. I hope and pray the corruption in the U.S. does not reach the level of corruption so entrenched in the Mexican government. If it does occur, we can kiss this great country goodbye.

I don't blame the illegal aliens, I blame our government who lets them flood over and outbreed us while turning the areas they inhabit into those rivaling the Black ghettos. Not to mention, like Blacks, they are disproportionally over-represented in violent crime and gangs.

We need to blame our government and the idiots we elect, not the poor brown masses flooding over.



There has to be some personal responsibility. They know perfectly well what they are doing and how wrong it is. From the time they cross the border to whenever they apply for something with false documents.
