I didn't know how to make a poll so I'll just ask my question.
Who thinks or doesn't think the Government is for sale?
My own opinion, it is extremely naive to believe they are not. Extremely. There's also a little humor in it, though. Our political system is part of the free market :P You can think of our government as the company wealthy entities buy shares in. Seriously, literally, that's how it seems to be.
But what does everyone else think?
