    The people, Corporate America, Themselves, and the Nation. We have corrupt politicians, and some that want to serve the people of the united states.

    My question is this. Did you really read the other options? & Are you really so naive?
    Am I so naive as to realize that the American system, despite its many flaws, has helped make the U.S. the greatest country on Earth? Yes.

    The U.S. government is probably one of the most corrupt along the lines of the EU and the rest of the 1st world nations.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    We could be better. But we're still better than most, and pretty much tied with most of the 1st world.

    I'm gonna disagree with that mainly because the countries most often listed as most corrupt don't hide it while U.S. politicians do or it is made legal.

    If by "serve" you could possibly mean "affect" then I picked several, including "the people."

    Because the government does, sometimes, serve the people in a good way, but other things in a bad way.

    it serves simply to perpetuate itself, by whatever means necessary.
