    Very true.

    The more powerful a Government becomes the more corrupt it becomes.

    The idiots on the Supreme Court that say we can't know what the original intent of the Constitution is are the Most Corrupt. Either that or they are totally ignorant of the facts of history.

    America's Founding Fathers set up a Government that was designed to have a balance of Powers and to spread Power as thinly as possible to prevent Tyranny because they Knew Power Corrupts.

    Any law that shifts Power from the citizens to the Central Government is Unconstitutional in nature.

    Ignoring that Fact of life is a path to Tyranny.

    Money is Power so excessive spending and excessive taxation are Corrupt Uses of Power.

    Nietzsche thought so. But there are examples of good people in power. Nelson Mandela, the Dali Lama, Bishop Desmond Tutu, Ghandi, MLK, Mother Theresa... all of these people had power and they were mostly good people. I'm not saying they were perfect, nobody is, but their power didn't lead to mass corruption.
