The government is an organization to provide for the collective needs of its citizens. It is essentially a service industry. Corruption is when the government’s purpose becomes to provide for the needs of a few, at the expense of the whole.
My initial attraction to Trump was his huge success in the service industry. Secondary attraction is the self funding aspect, and the implied immunity to corruption. Like a great corporation seeking a new CEO, our government has elections to select it’s leaders. The CEO can come from inside or outside the organization.
In my view it comes down to customer service, and corruptablity. One candidate has proven history of customer service. Two candidates are demonstrating aspects of incorruptiblity.
