Political corruption in the US, Germany and Russia


[ad_1]

The US government formed the governments of Germany and Russia; Therefore, the campaign funding laws in these three countries are compared here.

The US government shaped the German government not only because the US government (in cooperation with its allies in World War II) shaped post-war West Germany, but because this West German government also ruled the former GDR after October 3, 1990; so the gift German government is an extension of what the administration of US President Truman had produced how His Government of the Federal Republic of Germany.

The US government also shaped the Russian government because the CIA and US economists during the presidency of Russian President Boris Yeltsin from May 30, 1990 to Russia 31 “,” Boris Yeltsin had an entourage of ‘hundreds’ CIA agents, who taught him how to govern Russia, claims former parliamentary speaker ”,“ The conspiracy to exterminate the Soviet Union ”and, most recently,“ Putin says the Russian government is teeming with CIA officers ”. (This was the result of decisions made by U.S. President GHW Bush.)

So how are these three governments doing? today Do you compare campaign funding, which is an extremely important factor in how corrupt a country is? After all: Only if billionaires (& / or their corporations and non-profit organizations or “NGOs”) purchase The head of state of a nation and its legislature are legally very difficult to do, the respective nation can at all possibly be a real democracy. For example: An American billionaire, George Soros, commissioned a study to examine the election results of the 751 members of the European Parliament in order to compile a list of those who (as the study was entitled) were “Reliable Allies in the European Parliament “(2014 – 2019)“ and exactly 30%, of which 226, were listed as such. So: the likelihood that the EU actually represents the peoples of Europe seems to be very low.

Here follow answers that are solid in the written laws from each of these three countries (although this doesn’t necessarily reflect what these laws are like) forced – or not) on the 12 most important questions examined. I am presenting these dozen questions in the order that seems to me to be the clearest order for the reader to interpret, not in the order used by the source:

US shows 0 clear “No” s (or equivalents, such as “No information found in sources”).

Russia shows 5.

Germany shows 11.

Although this is a very incomplete indicator of a country’s corruption, it portrays the USA in a very positive light and presents Germany (11 out of 12 “no”) as astonishingly corrupt. Russia is halfway between the two, perhaps because Putin cleaned up Russia’s government after the hideous rule of Yeltsin, but much of it remains untapped even after 21 years.

Germany’s government was shaped more by Truman than perhaps any other in the world, except America’s own government. But by the current indicator, America’s vassal nations appear to be balanced more more corrupt than the imperial center, the USA itself – at least in so far as theirs Campaign Funding Laws (“What is written in black and white in the law books”) are affected.
