    Who controls the government?

    Big pharma has the biggest control over a politician's life. They sell their prescriptions. Could there be any ethical issues?

    Hey senator, we have this cancer drug, could prolong your life by 2 years. Are you interested?

    Too many interests to have control. That's why it remains out of control.

    "And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works." - Bastiat

    "It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere." - Voltaire

    It's why voting is so important, and why it's so important to make the most of your vote by voting on someone who is going to win.

    For example, my vote matters a lot. People who get my vote tend to win with about 82% success rate.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    but he controls all governments.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
