Whenever there is power there is corruption of it, even in small governments. When a government gets it's hands on a power, it won't willingly let it go, ever.

Can you tell me what you think the cause of corruption is ? I say its monetary system.

Without government funds, it certainly doesn't seem unreasonable to stop paying Congress. I mean, for what?

I think that  power and  money are tied for top spot in the corruption of any government.

I think the cause of corruption is humans.

I like this image. If only we could effect campaign finance reform, muzzle lobbyists, ban gerrymandering, and keep congresspeople from becoming lobbyists after they serve. Is there an app for that?

Yes. Thomas Jefferson wrote it the 1780s. It's been free ever since, but for some reason it's still not functioning fully.

The government is like the windows registry, it is there to be useful, but like the windows registry its easily corrupted, and the whole system is effected.
