How do politicians get so wealthy?
Ever notice how many politicians are so incredibly wealthy?A lot of them have no real marketable skills, or impressive careers pre political days. So my question is how do they amass this great wealth while(usually) in office? graft? Corruption? Enlighten me.

If you had an inside track on what legislation was being drafted, and what monopolies or protected fiefdoms were being created in the process, and had the opportunity to invest in said companies before the legislation passed to make that company very wealthy you could get rich quick too.

Book deals and speaking deals. THey charge incredible fees to speak at all sorts of events and conventions. That way it is money "earned" rather than "bribes paid" by lobbyists.

Re: How do politicians get so wealthy?
seriously??

well it started back when people use gold and silver coins to barter. Then these Khazar type satanists bought a safe and pleaded with everyone to let them protect their coins in their safe. In exchange, they issued IOU's to use in place of the coins so no one would have to worry about being robbed. So then the Khazars decided that they, since no one else could see in the safe and tell how much coin was in their -- could lend out more IOU's fractionally. Meaning if they had 10 dollars worth of coin they could lend out 1000 dollars worth of IOU's, with interest. By doing so, people would line up to get the easy IOU's because they were just paper and didn't need to be mined form anywhere.

So people used the IOU's with interest and became in debt to the bankers. The bankers then took their debt as a form of slavery, meaning they could have those people taking IOU's for legal tender and make them work for them to pay back the interest. The bankers could also seize land and other commodities, and even created police and forestry service in Brevard, NC to take land.

Heck, it even says that on your dollar bills. IOU's. A scam that has now enslaved the world. It isn't the bankers that built the technology and cities, it was the indebted rednecks, blacks, and Mexicans that built it all, including the cars and roads.

Re: How do politicians get so wealthy?
some in congress were trading stocks [ with inside infos/inside trading ] but it is legal for them to do so since no one went to jail like martha steward.. plus their daily ''bread '' is paid for by taxpayers, whole salary goes straight to bank acct and they can vote to increase it anytime they want....

Up until a short while ago, members of Congress and Senators that came across confidential insider corporate information were allowed to trade based upon that information and make money.

This was all legal and above board until a wonderful woman from Albany shot that down in flames - good for her.

Basically ... LIE, CHEAT and STEAL YOURE MONEY !

Then retire on YOUR MONEY, along with what they stole.

ALSO, don't forget the BRIBES they took to pass/NOT pass certain legislation that corporations were connected too that would cost THEM MONEY !

You can always tell when they are lying, as THEIR LIPS ARE MOVING !

Answer to this problem IS ... GOOD, STRONG ROPE !

Re: How do politicians get so wealthy?
Well, it is leaning towards what I suspected, immoral and borderline illegal acts, or outright illegal acts.It is a real shame that these are the people that call the shots for all of us.Would explain why their is a serious lack of leadership nowadays.

Their job is not to lead, it is to convince and put through bs legislation.

I'm not sure but I think it has something to do with the District of Columbia, if they have residence in the city. It's sort of like the Vatican, an independent district so certain laws don't apply to them.

Re: How do politicians get so wealthy?
I was told that they get inside information on stocks, etc. to invest in. Kind of like Hillary, but on a larger scale. These people, more than ever represent THEIR interests instead of the people they are supposed to represent. The word "servant" is derived from the word "slave," look it up. Who is serving who?

Sorry for the interruption, please go back into your Cowboy vs. Indians comfort zone, suckas.
