The politics isn’t corrupt and dirty only today, I mean yes we hear about it much more now on these because of the internet. But since being of the whole phenomena of politics it had been very corruptible and dirty. Even back in the day, George Washington, the man himself have in fact lost his very first election for Virginia’s House of Burgesses for simple reason, which was that he didn’t pay enough cash. If you don’t believe me then look it up.
Also way back in the dat there were very common for candidates for office to provide lots of free liquor to supporters on Election Day.
3 years after George Washington lost his first election for Virginia’s House of Burgesses, he had won that time all because he had passed out free whiskey of his own manufacture.
At the beginning the term of “vote early and often” was actually don’t a joke I was actually a real deal. The politics in 19th and early 20th centuries was literally all about politicians enriching themselves after another. All these land grabbing speculation, war profiteering, human trafficking in slaves and the other full things were also in the order of early days of politics.
I think it is safe to say that the politicians was way much corrupted way back in the day than they are now. But still we can find plenty politicians who also are corrupted.
Now our standard for politicians’ behavior is dramatically higher than it has ever been before.
The media is ravenous for scandal. And when we give ambitious politicians a set of important powers over the world’s biggest government budget and economy, corruption is just going to happen.
The media and the internet have changed a lot of things. And we for the most part rely on the media to bring these stuff up if something dirty or even sketchy is having anywhere. And this is supported by the First Amendment which will investigate the whole thing. But in the end it is up voters to punish them for it.
