*DUTY. As Iíve done in the past, the five gold I get from winning the election, if I am so blessed, will be given to the South Korean government as a donation to the Bank of Seoul.
You knov what would have been really funny? If Congress actually did vote for the minimum wage to be $6.66 an hour. The American economy would collapse overnight. Every business in the country would either die or flee the country. Citizens would not be able to find jobs, so they would leave as well.

In this party, if you work hard, youíll get ahead. In the society, the more you put in, the more youíll get out.
