Walter Williams: Legalized Corruption is Widespread

PatriotPost.US, Vol. 9-02 "Legalized corruption is widespread and that's the job of 35,000 Washington, D.C., lobbyists earning millions upon millions of dollars. They represent America's big and small corporations, big and small labor unions and even foreign corporations and unions. They are not spending billions of dollars in political contributions to encourage and assist the White House and Congress to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution. They are spending that money in the expectations of favors that will be bestowed upon them at the expense of some other American or group of Americans. ... The only way to reduce corruption and money in Washington is to reduce the power politicians have over our lives." --George Mason University economics professor Walter E. Williams
