The American People are corrupt.
Advertisements [?]
I'm not trying to be a troll, but I just wanted to make this quick comment. Based on my experience, people who accept nepotism and cronyism as "just part of life" are about equal among both Dems and Reps.

So, the message to people living in America is: Don't bother trying if you aren't related to someone or went to school with the right people.

So don't blame our leaders. It's not only them who are corrupt, but our general society.

Thank you.
