Yes, the government is a very corrupt set of people that will do ANYTHING to get power and money.
For example, medicine is the biggest profit that the Government obtains. They ask companies to make low quality food so we get sick and we go to the doctor to get drugs. The average for one pill of any medication is $15 to $20, so let's think about how much they're getting if an average person gets 2 bottle of 12 pills. That would be $360-$480 per person. Now there are millions of people out there suffering from diabetes, high and low blood pressure, cancer, etc. They are getting at least 500 billion a day, a freaking DAY. In a 24 hour period, they are making 500 billion. And yet they don't want to share with the people who are giving to them. Hmmm, makes me wonder....
Dr. Candice Mallory had finally found to cure for cancer after her 40 years of research. Now what does that mean for the medicine business. They make bad food, we get sick, we go right to the cure. Hold up, hold up, where's the drug money in this you ask? Oh yeah, Government, you don't make anything. So the Government was not very happy about this and Dr. Mallory, well, she refused to stop selling it. So you know what the government did? They made a decision to hire someone to kill her. To kill the lady that was helping people. Doesn't make much sense huh? Obviously, the Government won't stand for someone who is in their way from making money, becaus ein this country, Money=Power, and that's just the measures they will go to make sure they have the power. Pretty depressing....

lunartrashcan, has failed to address a substantial amount of examples and his arguments' are lacking evidence he also clearly has forgotten which government he is speaking about because he does not state it. So I presume he is talking about the U.S government. He d He clearly states that medicine is the biggest source of revenue for the government, medicine only brings in 10 billion dollars according to the Internal Revenue Service, where else individual taxes bring in a massive 1.48 trillion dollars! This clearly shows the lack of research lunartrashcan has done. He states in one of his arguments that the government requests companies/supermarkets to make low-quality food so we will get sick so we go to the doctor and they give us faulty medicine which cost quite a bit and does not work etc. If this was really happening there would certainly be a wide-spread pandemic where people are getting very sick, and foreign governments would certainly address it. This clearly is not the case.lunartrashcan also claims that the government is getting 500 billion dollars a day! The global economy is only worth 77 trillion dollars and its at a standstill according to CNNf .Therefore if the government was bringing in 500 billion dollars they would exceed the current global economy in a mere 154 days! lunar trashcan clearly has not done any research at all. Lunartrashcan needs to be reminded of the deninition of corruption

noun

dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery.

synonyms:dishonesty, dishonest dealings, unscrupulousness, deceit, deception, duplicity, double-dealing, fraud, fraudulence, misconduct, lawbreaking, crime, criminality, delinquency, wrongdoing, villainy; More
"
The government in no way are being dishonest, or fraudulent. Lunartrashcan has stated a scheme and is calling the scheme corruption. When it is not a scheme is a scheme in no way did it involve anyone to be bribed. He stated a scheme and falsely without any evidence portrayed it as a corruption.

The current government, aren't riddled with corruption as they used to be, they are more democratic than ever. With less corruption than ever. The government associated person to be arrested publicly for a mass scheme like lunartrashcans was John Hicklin Hall arrested in 1908! This shows that there is not any major scheme, for the past 100 years! Yet lunartrashcans made up story would make itself the biggest scheme ever! The deceiving lack of evidence Lunartrashcan has made has shown how far a citizen would go for attention. How far someone would lie to gain attention. If his story was real most of us would be dead due to the lack of medical infrastructure that lunartrashcan claims we had. Our government is not as corrupt as it seems to be.
