    We have watched what once was a fairy regimented unknown election cycle in America  devolve into one of election cycle  financial boom for candidacy  and incumbent senators , congressmen and even the White House candidates .     The profession to personal portfolio's  have become perhaps more prevalent and transparent !   For instance , Bernie Sanders  , a once portfolio  "poor "senator  from Vermont , recently purchased his third home  .  A six hundred thousand dollar waterfront home on Lake Champlain  in his home state just after the election fundraising ? Although   not singling out Sanders in particular  and looking at  foundations springing up like the Clinton foundation after Bills presidency , I'm  wondering ?
    Has politics simply  devolved to white collar criminal behavior ?

      It has always been thus. Scattered among the greedy have been a few statesmen and women over the years but for the most part office is usually sought for personal gain. On every level of government.

    I'm afraid  what's happened though is that it's all become acceptable behavior  TO THE VOTERS ,  the lines of political ideology are drawn and  unmoving , minds are made up , there isn't much use in changing any voters minds  .  Maybe Americans  are  too corruptible !
