    Which Party Values the Middle Class More?

    Personally I think neither care about the middle class.

    The Left needs the poor to remain poor, to retain their vote.

    The Right needs the rich to remain rich, to retain their vote.

    We keep voting for these politicians. We keep getting lied to. They keep breaking their promises. Our national debt is still rising. It wouldn't surprise me that Independants are increasing in number because they're disillusioned with both Wings. Oh, and the attack ads are still ridiculously disgusting, petty, and dishonest.

    Why should we settle for voting for the lesser of two evils? Don't we deserve better than that? So no, I'm not voting, because both candidates tow their party lines while smearing their opposing party and lying to the fools who routinely vote them into office.

    What liberals fail to understand is that the Right wants people from ALL classes to have the opportunity to BECOME rich.

    That's part of the American dream.

    But the Obama administration seems to want everybdy to be equal. Equally miserable in a lukewarm pile of economic manure called government assistance.

    America was not built on the Obama model or the Left wing model or the Progressive model. It was built on the Conservative model.

    Not so sure, both sides often love to talk about the middle class being important, but their actions often favor the ends of the socioeconomic spectrum.

    Maybe he means "party" as in "group", not necessarily political party.

    The Left and Obama, the Right and Romney. One Republican and one Democratic candidate, and the parties supporting them.

    So in order to allow anyone from any class to become "rich" you abandon or ignore all those people who do not have the intellectual capacity, the circumstance, the physical capacity, the education to become "rich"? What about all those people who don't lust after money and things, but who are wealthy in love respect and family - repectable working class people of specific personal ambitions that once the food is on the table and the roof stops leaking are more than content to enjoy their true "wealth"?

    That the right requires the rich to remain rich is essential the same thing as a class of inherited power/wealth which is NOT the definition of a republic. Ironic, eh?

    They have already done so. Middle class has been declining for the past decade.
