|In 2017, a poll revealed that 3/4 of US citizens were afraid of "corrupt government officials". A 2014 Gallup poll revealed that 3/4 of US citizens perceived corruption in the US government as "widespread".|
In 2014, 75% Americans perceived corruption in the US government as "widespread", up 66% in 2009. A 2017 poll revealed that the "Terrorism" had dropped from being the #2 fear of US citizens in 2016 to #22! By contrast, their biggest fear was "corrupt government officials", which rose from 60% in 2016 to 75% in 2017.
A 2014 paper in Perspectives on Politics entitled Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens concluded that the US was a de facto dictatorship - i.e. that the will of the people had no statistically significant impact on which legislation was enacted. This evidence of corruption was not followed up on by the commercially-controlled media and as of December 2017, it was still the only paper on this topic.
|John McAfee||“I've collected files on corruption in governments. For the first time, I'm naming names and specifics. I'll begin with a corrupt CIA agent and two Bahamian officials. Coming today. If I'm arrested or disappear, 31+ terrabytes [sic.] of incriminating data will be released to the press.”||John McAfee||9 June 2019|
|Statecraft||“The financial frauds conducted by The Enterprise were designed to implicate, enrich and entrap a huge swath of the political class in DC. Fraudulent securities or oil and gas deals were offered to friends to enrich them and enemies to entrap them. In some cases, enemies were suckered in with easy profits on small investments only to be bankrupted when larger fraudulent investments imploded. By the time that the Iran Contra scandal made the headlines, such a large number of congressmen and DC insiders were implicated that any attempt to expose the scale of the scandal would have resulted in a near wholesale implication of the political class. In many ways, this endemic corruption is what makes political reform in Washington so difficult, the level of corruption is so pervasive that the political class has no choice but to cover for each other’s crimes or risk mutually assured destruction.”||Mark Gorton||22 November 2013|
