that is a rather damning argument that they think government benefits the rich more since they oppose the rich. If they really thought government benefits the rich more than the poor, these advocates for the poor would want LESS GOVERNMENT
To take this another direction, two posts back you asserted the existence of a "true" liberalism (by which I assume you mean classical liberalism). How is that "true" liberalism if 98% of those who use that term don't apply it that way?

Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
