Corruption will happen on all political systems, in developing and developed countries alike, is an inherent feature of power not people. Only thing that work is going the China way, pretty hardcore laws agains corruption (Execution, bill family for the bullet after expropriation) Truth is the west let the Lobbyists grab as much power as they could, those do more damage than the average pork barrel slinger imo. Of one thing you can be sure, whomever wins will be the most monitored and "controlled" president in your history. That ship is long gone, maybe you all should focus on upgrading your laws and end the "choice theatre" of your bipartisan political system.
Anyway, I'm still thinking both Trump and Clinton are buddies and all this drama was just to wreck the R party, our grandchildren will know for sure perhaps.
