The USA I'm living in right now consists of decent, hard-working people, most of whom try to be completely honest in their dealings with each other. It's that old "treat others the way you'd like to be treated" thing. And I do love this country.
The higher up you go on the social ladder, the more false faces you see.
At the highest echelons of government, banking, and business, you can always tell when people are lying. You know you're being lied to whenever their mouths are moving.
