How Congressmen Enrich Themselves

We all know that the U.S. congress is not serving the public from the laws they passed to SUPPRESS individual rights, to ALIENATE the U.S. from the rest of the world in support of Israel's paranoid phantasm of being eliminated by surrounding neighbors, and to support ongoing ILLEGAL wars for corporate interests in the Middle East.

What we obviously see is that the members of the Congress do serve one thing - MONEY.

How could a congressman become very wealthy with just a paying salary of $174,000 a year?

Most of them are bought by corporations, especially defense contractors and pharmaceutical companies, as well as lobbyists for Israel.

In addition, there's a way to enrich themselves in stocks. The laws against stock market insider trading don't apply to the members of the Congress!!!

Let's try to understand this one. The Congress passed the laws AGAINST insider trading for anyone living in the U.S. But, those same laws DON'T apply to members of the Congress?!

This article reveals that "Congress and their aides have regular access to powerful political intelligence, and many have made well-timed stock market trades in the very industries they regulate."

So principles, ethics, justice go right out the door. There you have it - a corrupt congress that definitely DOES NOT serve and represent the people.

One more example of the dysfunctional American democracy.
