No corruption to see here. Politicians who were broke in comparison to the other politicians before being elected to congress rise to millions and the top 1% in their time as politicians dawn no flags.

There have been plenty of bad laws out there in every country that needed breaking before they could be changed. Of course, calling yourself a rule-of-law politician and then publicly breaking the law as well as trying to subvert the justice system for your own own benefit is decidedly crooked.

In terms of a more interesting discussion point, you may find Elizabeth Warren a refreshing candidate if corruption is one of your strongest issues. It's pretty comprehensive. I don't necessarily agree with every point, but there are a lot of good ones.

I would prefer not to take the refreshing candidate for corruption from someone who claimed and marked the box for being a native American to get personal gain professionally when she is confirmed 1/1024 indian via dna testing post receiving of the benefit and going off the fact her grandma said she has high cheek bones. Thanks


That's actually pretty hilarious. In my limited experience, a lot of americans seem to pride themselves in having very interesting backgrounds (distant relative of a nobleman who was wrongfully accused and cast out of his house then turned to 'MURICA and found wealth, bliss and freedom, or a bastard child, a princess(!), from a long forgotten european kingdom). I guess being told that your great, great, great grandfather was a dirt poor farmer or a thief and a liar isn't as hot. Also, didn't Trump wrongfully claim to be Swedish at some point?

But you're completely uninterested in any attempts to legislate because you don't like a person for a pretty silly reason, and since you clearly don't like any of them, none of it matters. Also the speaking circuit and book-writing are valid ways to make a lot of money, which is typically where the complaints come from.

What we do know is that Trump's grandfather had his citizenship revoked for draft dodging.

It's not called corruption in the richer countries, it is called lobbying. :lol:

Possibly getting mixed up with Trump's repeated claims his dad was born in Germany? Spoiler alert - he wasn't. His mum was born in Scotland though, hence his Scottish property portfolio, and why we've got a good head start on protesting the insanity of his inconsistent falsehoods.

An interesting read on Trump's history with Deutsche Bank, the bank that has been willing to lend to him over the last 20 years as other banks determined him to be too risky: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/18/busi ... -bank.html

Mr. Trump and Deutsche Bank were deeply entwined, their symbiotic bond born of necessity and ambition on both sides: a real estate mogul made toxic by polarizing rhetoric and a pattern of defaults, and a bank with intractable financial problems and a history of misconduct.... Over nearly two decades, Deutsche Bank’s leaders repeatedly saw red flags surrounding Mr. Trump. There was a disastrous bond sale, a promised loan that relied on a banker’s forged signature, wild exaggerations of Mr. Trump’s wealth, even a claim of an act of God.

In other news, I predict Medicare for all within the next 15 years!
