Does It Seem Counter-Productive To Blame This Mess On Mortgage Lenders And Appraisers?

I have a controversial response:

The government was not initially created to absolve the masses of personal responsibility, but this appears to be the direction it is heading.

The government was initially created to serve the public with products and services we all use collectively as a whole, such as the fire department, police department, the local library, etc. But in order for politicians to do mass advertising and marketing campaigns to influence the most amount of people, they have to raise money. And of course, the biggest globs of money come from huge corporations. So of course, these huge corporations are going to donate money to the politician... with a catch. And that is having the laws, rules and regulations written in THEIR favor, not the general population they have helped paid to influence.

In a nutshell, everybody wants to point the finger at everybody else, and absolve themselves of personal responsibility and blame the latest and greatest politician who was merely paid off by a big corporation to brainwash the public into voting for them.

So, which came first, the chicken or the egg? Do we blame the dumb, unsuspecting chattel we call American citizens? Do we blame the smooth, fast talking, and savvy politician who wins their votes? Or do we blame corporate America for buying the politician to lead the chattel to line their pockets even more?

I'm with John Kennedy. Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country. Instead of demanding jobs, create jobs for others. Instead of blaming mortgage lenders, appraisers and corporate America for this big financial mess, see what you can do to be a part of the solution instead of the problem.
