Read this next bit; an article from the paper (really, it's not long) and lets talk about the disconnects between leaders, be they political,

So when politicians are getting wealthy, when it takes BEING wealthy or "donations" (free of (cough cough) political arm twisting and favor owed

far over half, and the money doesn't come from the people who are supposed to be represented.... is this a disconnect? Just who IS being
represented? Isn't this what caused the uprisings overseas? Isn't this a fair description of how it is here in America right now?
