In this day and age, corruption and cheating has been normal to politicians and have been ignored by the people. is it because they know that there is no more chance to change it? or is it because they have given up and lost their hope of having a clean, corrupt-free and cheat-free government. do you think your vote will change it? will you still exercise your right to vote? defend your answer.

People have fought and given their lives to allow us to vote in a democratic nation in Canada. I feel it is my duty and privilege to vote in each and every election. When I was young I missed a couple of votes, I thought I couldn't be part of change and that my vote didn't count. Now I realize every vote counts and we shouldn't waste ours.

I always vote no matter what. That being said I sometimes am not to sure on whether they meaning politician are saying what they believe or saying just what will get them voted in. By I try my best to read between all the bickering that goes on and pick the one that I feel will do the better job.

As my opinion sudden corruption controlling is highly impossible and it can't control by one person and one hand need all peoples and all humans support, We must be able to understand the sources of corruption before we go into the issue of whether there can be legal prevention and judicial control over corruption. The degree of corruption depends upon three factors. The first is the individual values cherished by a person. This depends upon his religious background, his family background and the culture in which he is brought up. The second factor that affects the level of corruption is the society values. India for instance has become a society where we perhaps take a very tolerant view of corruption. We find that only those who have either money or power are able to get things done and the common citizen therefore finds that at every place, when he interfaces with any public office, he has to bribe. The third factor that affects the level of corruption is the system of governance, the legal framework and the institutions that form the basic structure of government.
