Has bribery become the standard way to "get things accomplished" today? America has prided itself on being a country ruled by law, where individual had civil liberties and were not dominated by others whether through oppression from above or from money below. I guess the love of money IS the root of all evil".
America sees her government being corrupted by lobbyist that "buy" special regard and priviledge and the "common man" has ceased to care. The aristocracy could care less because it furthers their power and control to "do as they please".
And now, we see that worldwide "law" does not rule but money, power and position.
