There’s one chance for the system to exonerate itself and elect an uncorrupt President. Elect a man who doesn’t need to be bribed and who is so familiar with bribing officials the he can stop a lot of it. That’s Donald Trump.
Bribing a public official has become so common most people resent anyone who refuses to pay but they really resent anyone who admits they pay the bribes needed to exist in a culture that’s corrupt.
If a bribe has to be paid to live the culture is corrupt.
