What causes people to hate their government?

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) saw her net worth rise 62 percent last year.[*1]

My opinion is that anybody who made 62% in the past year is gaming the system somehow. It sure ain’t making money “the old fashioned way”–by actually earning it.

Anybody who made 62% in the past year and is House Minority Leader is (again in my opinion) hopelessly and dangerously corrupt. Of course, that pretty much describes the entire Democratic Party and the large majority of the Republican Party, too.

Hence, the “tea party.”
