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 ?
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 !
