    using your logic no one should have any wealth when others are poor
    No, by my standards, what is immoral is cutting funds to help our seniors and the poor to give those with more money than they can spend even more tax cuts than they have already received over the last 3 decades. That doesn't help our economy and it is just driving more and more of the middle class into poverty. We haven't seen this level of disparity between the rich and the poor since the 1920s!

    The present economic system of institutionalized theft creates resentment among both the elites and the working class. I expect most middle and working class Americans understand, at least on some level, that they are being robbed.

    All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume. -Noam Chomsky

    I think you are exactly right and why all the polls show now that a majority of people think tax cuts for the wealthy have to be eliminated along with spending cuts to help reduce our deficit.

    Ignorance leads to hate, jealousy and envy. Few individuals can overcome that sht. Case closed.

    most of your erroneous conclusions are based on the foundational error that the government is giving the rich money. Only can someone who believes all money and wealth initially belongs to the government could make such a fundamentally wrong statement

    of course-those who benefit from having artificially low tax rates have been conditioned into believing its the duty of the rich to keep paying artificially high tax rates so the rest of america don't have to pony up the moneys they want the government to spend on them
