@discomforting ---- It's not a two party system anymore with the tea party, however a partyless system seems like it would be great.

Tea Party members like Marco Rubio simply masquerade as Republicans.

@jif ---- You failed to prove that their will never be a less corrupt nation, in fact as of right now you have been proven wrong by the Human Development Index.

What do you think I'm exactly disproving? No standard for what defines corruption exists, so I made my own. Every nation has corruption, and the US has a lot less then other nations. And while I disagree with your article, and feel that HDI has not the slightest connection with the CI, the US has a high HDI as well. Just stop.

Washington's quote doesn't use the word "corruption". Most of us concluded we dislike political parties at some point in grade school, and we all agree with the father of our country, but the quiz nonetheless seems engineered to steer voters towards a single answer.
