Top 10 Ethical Nations

Canada, UK, and Australia are in the top 20, and USA just barely made it into the top 20 -- at 19.

Top ten:
Denmark, New Zealand, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Singapore, Switzerland, Netherlands, Australia, Canada.

Now if you want to know the top ten most corrupt states in the USA, NC is right up there in the queue, although our legislature has decided to get serious and jail jerks who are marthagristing the 911 emergency lines. Gotta have a prosecutor, though, who isn't a rugheaded, coke-snorting crook like Moe Ron Moore.

Just because our government does a good job of hiding it doesn't mean we aren't scurrilous and evil.

After all, we have an active concentration camp going on in Guantanamo Bay -- I'd call that "government corruption". Simply because we can't see it or aren't actively aware of it on US soil doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
