Campaign contributions and other payoffs

Article by Cal Nogov on Jan. 5, 2016


It’s obvious to me, but apparently that’s not the case with the majority of people.

Campaign contributions are bribes paid to politicians.  This is how big business controls the government.  The lefties will immediately go, ‘Ah ha, you see big business is the problem.’   No.  Business of any size is not the problem.  The problem is government.

You cannot expect ethical business behavior in a corrupt system.

Let me repeat that.

You cannot expect ethical business behavior in a corrupt system.

When the system is corrupt eventually all the actors in the system will be corrupt.  Any ethical business person trying to compete will be destroyed by the unethical with rare exception.  In addition, any ethical business person entering the corrupt system will ultimately be corrupted if they attempt to remain and compete.  The ethical business person only has two choices:  Be driven out of business or become corrupt.

In a free market, the ethical business people will flourish.  They will provide goods and services the people want at high quality and low cost.  If they don’t, the people will seek alternatives.  The most ethical prosper, while the unethical are destroyed.

Unethical business people cannot compete on a free market.  Unethical business people need the power of government to compel people.  That is why they pay off the politicians.

The corruption of the system begins in one of two directions.

The first direction is that an unethical business person (or group of business people, sometimes even apparent competitors) enters a market.  He sees that he can increase his profits if there was legislation that benefits him.  So he begins talking to politicians to vote for the legislation he wants.  He uses campaign contributions and other payoffs to buy the politicians.  The politicians need cover so it doesn’t appear that they are being bought.  The legislation is “sold” to the public in a way that appears to benefit “the people”.

The second direction is that the politicians corrupt ethical business people.  If a business person (or group or entire industry) begins making a lot of money, the politicians want a piece of that.  They’ll start threatening the business people with detrimental legislation if they don’t start coughing up the payoffs.  If the business person appeals to the public, he will be demonized by the politicians.  He’ll be called “greedy” or “doesn’t want to pay his fair share” or attacked in some other way.  He’ll either pay up or be driven out of business.  If he chooses to play ball, he has now become corrupted.  His corruption will increase.  It has to, or otherwise the unethical will destroy him as described above.

Corruption of the system is detrimental to the general population while benefiting a small “elite” few.  The general population have the costs of goods and services driven up because of the corruption.  It lowers their standard of living while the “elites” are getting richer.  If you’ve ever wandered WHY the poor get poorer and the rich get richer, it’s because of government.  Specifically, the corruption described above.  Whether fast or slow, corruption of government is unavoidable.

While you’re saying “power to the people” or “get money out of politics” or “we want campaign finance reform” or whatever it is, the politicians will find a way to get that money and they’ll always do what their sugar daddy’s want.  The people are pesky things to be tricked and lied to.  The Politicians are slick salesmen that dazzle the masses with bullshit.



Here is a sample of a payoff.  The book deal.  Ah, the book deal.  The book deal is a “legitimate” way to pay off a politician.  If the politician does what the unethical business people want, he will be paid off with a book deal.  The politician doesn’t have to write the book.  A ghost writer writes the book.  The book is published and the person making the payoff guarantees a certain amount of sales, say 20 million.  Of which the politician will receive one dollar per sale.  A guarantee of a 20 million dollar payoff.  If the book fails to sell that many copies, the briber will make the purchase.  This is easy to do with dummy corporations etc.  Or an alternative would be that the briber guarantees to buy 20 million copies and any additional purchases by the public is just gravy.

This is a simple payoff method.  I’m sure the sneaky bastards have many more.

Are you beginning to see the government for what it is?  Dig deeper.  It gets worse.
