    Screw those people.
    Yeah sure, nobody has to work, sure, sure.

    Here's a bit of reality for you. In the state of California, in the past 25 years, 10 million new residents have arrived. Of those 10 million residents, 7 million of them are on medicare Of those 10 million residents, only 150,000 have filed income taxes. That's 1.5% of the newcomers who have jobs that make enough to pay taxes and 98.5% that do not.

    You do the math.

    Info provided by right wing financial advisors. Why did not they or Barron's predict the economic crash that started with the bush admin?

    Why not? Because ass holes like them caused it.

    According to the majority of people on the planet, you *ARE* wealthy.

    My experience with the "silver spooners" is they are typically republican and talk about poor taking their wealth when in fact most has been given to them. In the business I was in before i was told by one of them I would never make it to their level and far exceeded it only for them to concede they were in the wrong. That bubble burst, but I take great pride in knowing socially and income basis on my own hardwork, intellect, and merits I will before I'm 30 climb to upper middle and maybe if the time and ideas are right, even better than that. I sort life with a series of achievements and milestones one of those being economic superiority. To me, that ensures i can help my family and others in need while not having to ever worry about debt.

    I take great pride in knowing Ive never used entitlements even when I could have. At the same time I understand some arent as resourceful as I am or aren't given the chances so these programs are beneficial to them and all of us.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Well, I talk about the poor taking because I, like you, made it from poor to on the verge of wealthy on my own. Why? I did it because I didn't enjoy childhood in a poor household and wanted to earn the privilege of putting a silver spoon in the mouth of my kids. I can't stand parents who don't make sacrifices to give their kids a better start than they had. Excluding major catastrophes, the descending lineage of a family should be a nondecreasing sequence in terms of wealth if each descendent applies this strategy.

    Re: What class do you fall under and what is your political affiliation?

    I fall in the lower middle class, but, naturally, hope to move up soon as I finish my Bachelor's Degree.

    I am a conservative libertarian; and a strong proponent of free markets, federalism, limited government principles, decentralization/very small federal government, and an originalist interpretation of the US Constitution.
