Should corruption be legal in the United States?
Debate Rounds (3)
If we do not legalize corruption then many lives will be taken, many families of politician's and those relevant to them will be harmed and blackmailed or bribed to keep their mouths shut. If corruption were legal, less force would need to be used and in turn bribery woudl become so common that people would grow more resistant to it because if bribery becomes excessively supplied, the relative demand for it will significantly be less thanw hat is offered and eventually people will learn the hard way that corruption defeats itself. The only thing that encourages corruption to grow and spread like a cancer is the need to hide it nad cover up ever having been engaged in it.
Countries where tax evasion is illegal is just as bad after several of the world's 'power players' have been caught.
In places like Nevada, Wyoming, and Delaware it is perfectly legal to start up a fake business for the sole purpose of shoving all of your money in it. Every year big companies are stealing billions of dollars from the people and even worse, they aren't spending it. The money just gets piled up over time and causes our economic growth to become stagnant.
Approximately 1,029 businesses were found at ONE bank in Nevada. Banks like Mossack Fonseca are called tax havens which are used by the rich to gain exponential wealth.
If the average amount of money stashed away per business is somewhere around 1 million dollars then that would mean that in just one bank and estimated 1 billion dollars is hidden. There are hundreds to thousands of these banks across those three states I mentioned earlier. This money could climb the United States out of its debt very quickly.
While the rest of us that make less than millions a year have to pay for the bulk of schools, roads, police, and other services the super wealthy don't have to.
This isn't even mentioning that the cost of this election is going to exceed 10 billion dollars.
Absolutely nothing Con mentions is relevant to this debate. It doesn't prove corruption shyould be illegal only that it encourages people to want to work hard and get rich.
My opponent states "It doesn't prove corruption [should] be illegal only that it encourages people to want to work hard and get rich." This statement is not only false but provides no evidence that supports this claim. Not only does corruption not encourage people to want to work hard but it also depletes resources that would be otherwise used for education. These people are not trained to succeed, rather trained to work in factories and do minimal tasks. So now the United States is left with population of uneducated, poor people.

Thank You for debating me! Good Luck
Bribery works better for the rich. If you are richer you are less tempted by bribes adn more able to give them. Corruption motivates people to work hard and get rich to avoid being a pawn on the chessboard and instead be a King or Queen. This is good for the economy.
