“The average net worth of a Senator is more than $14 million, and the average net worth of a member of the House of Representatives is nearly $6 million.”
Though this information is a few years old, the numbers are likely to have gotten worse, such is the corruption and cronyism within our government.
All the right folks — among them George Soros, Mitt Romney, the Republican Establishment, Glenn Beck, career politicians of every stripe, the bureaucrats, the mainstream media, Hillary, Bernie, — are coming out against Trump, and secondarily Cruz, making all kinds of declarations about them and their campaigns, warning the electorate to steer clear of such wildly radical men.
So I might just vote from Trump — out of spite, mostly. If Cruz is the nominee he can count on my support. It’s a great way to rebel from the so-called mainstream.
THE CURRENT SPEAKER OF THE ILLINOIS HOUSE
of Representatives is a man named Madigan, Michael Madigan. Madigan has been in office for 45 years, 31 of those as speaker.
Forty-five years!? To me this is just ridiculous. No one should hold political power for that long.
Many election cycles he hasn’t even had an opponent. He mostly runs unopposed. No wonder he’s all smiles.
He’s so open and honest that his Twitter feed isn’t even public. It’s protected. Only those going through a screening process are awarded access.
And they wonder why corruption is such a problem. It’s a particular issue in Illinois.
