    Depends... is the person earning $1,000,000 a drug dealer?

    Not enough information. If someone is earning 1 mil per year via child pornography while the other person is living off welfare because they're disabled and have no choice, then the 1 mil person is most reprehensible. If the 1 mil person is making that money from an honest business while the welfare person is faking needing the welfare, then the welfare person is most reprehensible.

    When we look at the # of people on welfare, and the increase in poverty, how is all of that working out for you in terms of teaching them to fish?

    Not a very good question. There are no absolutes. People at both ends of the spectrum could be reprehensible.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    By having a "defense industry" that is heavily employed does that mean we have to go around invading countries left and right and start wars all across the globe?

    Pretty much this.

    The first option tells us nothing about the person's moral compass, the second option definitely gives us a good clue about the person's moral compass. Not a well thought out poll.

    If someone has to wear a uniform when they attack us in order for us to defend ourselves, we are screwed.

    Not necessarily.
    Being attacked by a foreign nation and being attacked by a loosely organized bunch of fanatics may have the same result, but the appropriate response is not the same.

    In the case of the attack of 9/11, the appropriate response would have been to send a small but well trained international force to go in and take out the handful of fanatics that launched the attack, kill them or bring them to justice, and then come home.

    Not go to war against two nations that did not launch the attack.
