I once read where Lisa Madigan, Mike's stepdaughter, once was quoted s saying politics is Hollywood for the non physically attractive in the United States.
These people are out for themselves but in a way I do trust Trump more than the usual status quo. I don't think he is in this for the money and to him it may be a Hollywood thing. On the other hand the recent moves by the Democrats makes them, to me, to totally disregard our country in order to make themselves wealthy. One might even opine here why haven't the Democrats, that control Illinois, done one thing to try and rectify the pension mess that the citizen's have to carry?
At our level consider Haugnaur. How many pension's does he need? Of course another poster here will pop up with some post about his being worth it etc blah blah. Fine but consider then he, Haugnaur, is doing it for the money and not for the good of the citizenry. Perhaps I should not focus on him but in this instance he represents the entrenched Democratic party in our area and, if he is so concerned, why doesn't he forgo his salary since it is proclaimed by his defenders about how much more he is worth than a Mayor of Edwardsville.
You are right they don't represent us and the people that defend them are merely orators that treat us as pawns in the game we now live in.
Youre right...they dont care.
