    The left wing calss warriors would have us believe that rich people get rich by theft-they don't really earn their money, thus they don't deserve. Therefore, it is just for the central planners to take it and use to do good for society.ow, what better spokespersonn could they have for pushing this idea that rich people don't deserve their wealth.........

    There has never been a country that has given it's people a greater opportunity to be upwardly mobile. Most corporations today started with one person and a dream.

    Why should I care about the gap?

    This is stupid. It's no one else's responsibility to make money for me.

    The idea of taxing the rich more goes back to Adam Smith and The Wealth of Nations.

    This IMF paper on redistribution and growth (pdf), concludes that there is no negative effect of redistributionist policies. What is does do is reduce inequality.

    Claiming redistribution is "theft"(or as Mitt Romney claimed during his failed Presidential run, that redistribution is un-American) is silly. We have been redistributing income and wealth for generations. Medicare, for example, is in effect a strongly redistributive program: itís supported by a payroll tax (and other revenue) in which the amount you pay in depends on your income, but it supplies a benefit that depends only on your medical costs. From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!

    So no, we liberals here aren't radical for suggesting that we should continue to do what we're already doing; the real radicals are the people on the right who want to declare much of what our government has been doing these past three generations illegitimate.
    Just because it's been happening for generations doesn't make it right. I have no problem helping people move up. I have a problem with people permanently living off me.

    No reason to think republicans are any less greedy or jealous of rich people than democrats. Hard to imagine why this is an epiphany.

Of course that troubles us. It is antithetical to everything we believe in. Unfortunately, we try to pretend that this problem doesn't exist and many people oppose measures to equal the playing field because they don't want anything holding them down when they become rich.
    the death tax and high progressive rates on income keep the uber rich free from competition

    worse yet is the phony indignation of rich "socialists" who pander the poor in order to get richer through public office

    When you take no responsibility for yourself, indiscriminately have kids with whoever, don't raise them properly, and make no effort to improve yourself or your kids through example and work ethic, then you're going to end up on the wrong end of the economic scale.

    That unfortunately describes a growing percentage of this country as liberalism continues to rot the core values of this nation.

    Honestly, it's not that difficult to do pretty well in America. It just isn't.
