    The only way 1% of a nations citizens can gain most of its wealth is when that nations government has become corrupt to the core.

    Well corruption is certainly a factor. But it is ultimately us good citizens who elect our governmental leaders, and when almost half the age eligible citizens in America decide to "go fishing" on election day instead of voting, then it is hard to cast blame at that elected government whose electorate did turn and voted their passions.

    I wouldn't call it corruption as much as I would call it exploiting to the max. When front running is legalized, publicized, applauded and admired corruption is not needed to transfer wealth to the wealthy. No excuse for all that is bad. Outside of a few people like Bernie everybody else doesn't care. On top of that look at how Bernie was derided and attacked by the DNC for trying to do the right thing.

    Yes Schmidt, it is not really "corruption". It is pure being "naive" in this country, due to lack of education or "good" education especially in the "rust belt", "bible belt" "slave belt". They only wanted "change" without thinking. Furthermore it was not the voting; it was the stupid 1800's laws which did this to us. Electoral Boards don't belong in 2017. Only "votes" should count, like in any other civil country. We did this to ourselves!!!
