They didn't get where they are by being 'dumb'. They are calculated and diabolical. They know exactly what they are doing and have done.
They have an agenda and it differs between politicians. Some do it merely for capital gain, to be wealthy until they die. But the ones who are worked the hardest and have the most powerful positions are the most corrupt. They intend to rid the world of the Constitution of the United States and make America no longer sovereign. They desire to thrust us all into socialism where we own nothing and they own it all.
