    Anyone who doesn't realize that politicians are rich are blind ... and they get into office only to make themselves richer ... their policies are for no other reason. ;)

    and the ones who aren't millionaires yet will be when they leave office.

    so they're fucking evil just like the bankers and businessmen but these pols don't actually produce anything.

    In fact they get paid for taking our money from us

    There is a difference, bankers and business men aren't in control, the politicians however can change policies to give them an edge. ;)

    I am glad to see that there were no billionaires. That would be terrible!

    Ever wonder why I don't vote lately? ;) When a "nobody" shows up on the ballot, I will vote.

    Devil's advocate here: Anyone who makes over $200K a year and doesn't have a net worth of over a million must not be a financial genius.
