It's not just the Presidential candidates who are wealthy but Congress too. Not a value judgment, just stating the obvious: wealth, income and power are inseparable in an oligarchy.

interesting and valued somewhere between $2.44 million and $5.46 million:
But Ron Paul’s portfolio isn’t merely different. It’s shockingly different.
Yes, about 21% of Rep. Paul’s holdings are in real estate and roughly 14% in cash. But he owns no bonds or bond funds and has only 0.1% in stock funds. Furthermore, the stock funds that Rep. Paul does own are all “short,” or make bets against, U.S. stocks. One is a “double inverse” fund that, on a daily basis, goes up twice as much as its stock benchmark goes down.
The remainder of Rep. Paul’s portfolio – fully 64% of his assets – is entirely in gold and silver mining stocks..

What I find more interesting is how much is a politician worth before heading to Washington, and how much are they worth in the immediate years after leaving Washington.I still call it The Jake.
