    Anytime a certain group holds power at an extreme level relative to another, the inequality causes those with less to have their interests ignored. It creates instability, either economically or politically.

    This is basic stuff a historian should know.

    Your language suggests you don't really want a discussion, but rather an opportunity to sling insults.
    Oh..wait....I heard something like this somewhere...

    Along with extremism comes insults, but I can hold off on them in favour of a sane discussion. And so, if you think income inequality isn't a problem then you need to look at your country's standing in comparison to the rest of the first world.

    In fact, you know it's a problem and so do I. The comments and complaints on this board alone are enough proof of that and it's coming from both sides of the political spectrum.

    If it's an insult to criticize your country then I suppose that is something that you are going to have to live with. The discussion is impossible without it!

    and then there is the senate, where democrats hold a majority, and the white house currently held by president obama.

    if you think the republicans in the house have the ability to govern without help from the democrats, you are ignoring the political reality of having a bicameral legislature.

    and you still cannot rationalize or accept that the American people chose to reelect president obama, and to preserve the democratic majority in the senate.
    Nothing but they do represent the will of the people and to continue to demonize them is to demonize the majority in this country who elected them.

    Democrats do hold a majority in the Senate but lost seats and only won because of the big cities controlled by the city bosses. It does seem that compromise is giving into the liberals and what they want. Is that your definition of compromise?

    The American people chose to re-elect Obama because they continue to buy the rhetoric and ignore the incompetence and the results. They didn't like Romney and thought Obama was the better alternative. They were wrong and that is surfacing today. I hope we survive three more years of Obama. I suggest you pay attention to the Obama results and tell my you support them?

    A person should make as much money as he/she is clever and industrious enough to make.

    Right, another "American Idol" voter. There is no way that Palin would generate worse results than Obama

    On the contrary, I believe income inequality is one of the outstanding positive points of the USA.

    Any conservative who supports Palin is being irrational and not worthy of any discussion. So maybe rather than having to condemn her outright and show weakness by a split in the party line, it's better to just not associate oneself with her crazed and insane agenda.

    It's like a Dem remaining silent on the Anthony Weiner embarrassment. Only extremist idiots would show support in both cases.

    Well, since she was not going to win round four, she didn't want to be a lame duck reality show contestant.

    But I've always said that America may have to travel down that path before it returns to some kind of normalcy. Canada is a good example of what 'does' work and it's far removed from the bagger agenda.

    I think it's much more likely that a large part of the bagger movement will die a natural death as the object of their racist hate is no longer in their WH. Some of it will undoubtedly continue to a degree that it existed before Obama. It will return to a more rational agenda of supplyside economics which has existed since Reagan as a small fringe movement. Supplyside economics had it's chance with Bush2 and that lesson learned won't leave the discussion for many years.
    Sorry, I don't fear it at all, what I do fear are continuation of the Obama economic results and destruction of our economy. There is nothing to fear about personal and economic responsibility. Canada is improving due to the election of a Conservative government. It is going to take that here as well because a good leader doesn't demonize individual wealth creation and promote the entitlement society.

    I don't think you have a clue with the T.E.A. Party stands for any buy what the media tells you, a media that creates the news rather than reports the news. Sorry but supply side economics is the only economic system that works. Supply side economics was torpedoed by the liberals in Congress with the help of the media. The economic numbers when the Republicans controlled the Congress from January 2003 to January 2007 were stellar but you would never know that because far too many people buy what they are told and refuse to do any research to verify the rhetoric. BLS.gov, BEA.gov, and the U.S. Treasury will show the results of those years and they aren't bad at all.
