More government power means more corruption

Congratulations to The Union for your article on the July 15 front page reporting the dishonest accounting practices of our federal government. As you point out, this dishonesty far, far overshadows any dishonesty in the private sector.

Everyone should know by now that power corrupts. And no corporation or other organization in the world has as much power as the U. S. federal government. The Republicans and Democrats whom we elect to run our government love this power but it inherently leads to their corruption.

It is time for the citizens of this wonderful country of ours to be informed of this corruption and to vote only for politicians who offer to return us to the limited federal government spelled out in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
