"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

I can remember ever since high school looking at the worth of these people. I used to be shocked how wealthy they were then.  Now it is in the hundreds of millions.

Rockefeller is worth at least three times the $81 million described in this article.
“My god! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy? I confess I had no idea of it myself.” Jefferson writing to Madison on America in 1785 while in Paris.

I think Feinstein is worth more as well.

Ali Bama was worth about 1.2 million when he took office and now is worth almost 9 times that.  Considering he hasn't yet made a million dollars as POTUS, that is some good "investing. :da man:

Perhaps he had Hillary advise him. She seems to have some talent in that area.

The article is rather full of venom and spite, making it a rather untrustworthy source.
