When did it become OK to endorse corruption. When did Americans say it was OK for a politician to be so corrupt that it endangered the national security of this nation? If you look at the word corruption it describes the very action of Hillary Clinton.

“the journalist who wants to expose corruption in high places”

“these figures have been subject to corruption”
In knowing what corruption is, why is it that people will still stand behind a corrupt politician? Corruption is not leadership. Corruption kills the trust of a nation, it divides its people. Everyday as I watch this happen I ask myself has America lost its morality? Corruption just causes more corruption if let loose with power. It will move into every branch of government when the leadership is corrupt. We are seeing it now, branches of government have now become political in nature, they have lost their independence to do what is right, everything is now driven by political thought.
If we as Americans allow this to happen then our democracy is gone. Our independence is gone. Just remember why America was born, individuals came to a land to get away from a nation where they told you what church to belong to, to pay taxes without representation, and a corrupt King. The nation fought for its independence to get away from this type of life. And now, in our America, we are faced with corruption in our government and in the politician running for the highest office in America. And Americans are sitting here trying to make the argument that the corrupt politician is the answer, when in fact it is the wrong direction for a moral nation. Choosing immorality and corruption is not the American way.
I ask you to get out and vote. But think long and hard before you endorse corruption. Vote against corruption. Because this one vote will change the course of this nation. Vote on November 8th.
