10 things politicians can learn from Al Capone

The American people are clearly fed up with the increasingly scandalous behavior of politicians.  So what, do you suppose, could politicians learn from the most notorious gangster in history?  ...Try this:

  • Your word should be your bond.
  • Family is everything.
  • Don't let your head get to big for your hat.
  • Pay your taxes.  (Al got 11 years, not a cabinet post.)
  • Be proud to be an American.
  • Don't lie to the people you work for.
  • Beware of Communism...the threat is Real.
  • Find out what it's like to run a business and meet a payroll.
  • Create jobs, not dependents.
  • Be loyal to friends, and invincible to enemies.

  1. Thank you, Deirdre. It's always irritating how politicians will say anything, including lies, to get elected and then when they are elected it's a completely different story. There's no honesty in politics anymore. Thank you for stating the way things should be!
