    Should politicians distribute their wealth?

    Do you think it would be favorable to a politician to redistribute his wealth among his supporters?

    Ideal answer is that a politician should not collect wealth. But ideals do not happen in reality. A politician should create ( not collect ) the wealth. Because collection triggers corruption. Yes, created wealth can be redistributed to NEEDY one who is potential wealth creators.

    Favorable to HIM, but it certainly wouldn't be good for the country. There's enough ways for politicians to buy votes as it is without their promising to pay you money if you vote for them.

    On the other hand, a politician should not be able to play accounting games and stash all his money in Swiss banks and the Cayman Islands to avoid paying the taxes that ordinary taxpayers have to pay.

      Yes, but neither should the head of the DNC, like Debbie W Schultz who happens to have foreign bank accounts and investments...oops!

    Absoluetly not. The Roman emperors did this and it led to assassination after assassination by the greedy and sordid elements of the government and society.

    They certainly should distribute theirs before they distribute ours.
