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

    First, refer to this image:

    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...5/Class_US.svg

    I am democrat, voted for Obama, I fall under lower middle class smack dab in the middle of it making my situation better than roughly 54% of Americans.
    "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

    "Wealthy class". My family falls under that category.. I am Republican and just barely missed out on voting. But that bracket is very misleading. I'm not sure if this accounts for families. My family barely falls into this category, but I don't find it very right to have us in the same category as millionares. Considering my parents are trying to pay for 3 kids in college, give more than the 10% tithe to church and charity, and pay taxes... We really aren't much wealthier than anyone else.

    The image doesn't fit my situation.
    I'll be getting near the high end of the "lower middle class" section, but I'm a blue collar worker with some college.

    I didn't vote for anyone, because I'm not naive.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Yeah, if you've got three kids in college and you can afford to tithe-- much less to go above and beyond-- then yeah, you really are wealthier than most everyone else. Count your blessings.

    I'm a welfare parasite, and I planned on voting GOP this year but I just couldn't after Ryan started running his mouth on abortion. So I voted for Gary Johnson.

    But at the same aspect, my parents don't view tithe and offering as voluntary. They are very religious and believe that it belongs to the Lord and therefore will give even if they it comes to their last dollar. All three of us have to work to help pay, and after taxes they would no longer be in that category anyways. Of course my parents could abandon me and my two other siblings and live a much more comfortable lifestyle.

    I really define someone wealthy if they have loads of disposable income, which really we don't.

    Note, I'm not saying we're poor by any means or anything like that. But i'd say there should be a few more categories for people who really are wealthy.

    Yeah, there really should be-- there's people who can afford to pay a tenth of their income, and people who can afford to live off a tenth of their income.

    I'm just saying... if your parents can afford to put three children through college on their own, they're wealthy.

    We do pretty good considering where I came from. Dirt poor as a kid and have decided I didn't want that for me or mine. Only had one kid because that's what I could afford. She is in private school and about to head to college next year. No College for me but I was a college instructor for 2 1/2 years. Landed a great job right before the economy took a giant dump. Hear that sound? Its me patting myself on the back. J/k I do ok but my wife and I work our tails off.

    That's true. Sadly I'm the youngest though and most of my college will be paid by me. Oh well. Bring on the loans. I can join the lower middle.

    Very few people fit into those exactly - they're silly.

    Maybe that's why I'm a moderate - I side with no one thusly I align with no one single group. I'm a stay at home mom who's in college - what does that make me? I'm not about to claim **** because of my husband's income.
