    Because like in the 1920s most of the country's wealth is concentrated at the top.

    Or...just maybe...Obama's tax policies are oppressing business, who then have to take measures against the populace?

    I couldn't give a damn if the wealth is concentrated at the top, as I'm not an entitlement baby/socialist. Sorry if you think the bourgeois owe you a living.

    Than you don't give a damn about the economy. Fortunately most of the people that voted in the presidential election do care about our economy.

    That's funny...wealth was concentrated at the top in the 90s when we had unprecedented prosperity.

    I don't think that redistribution is conducive to a growing, thriving economy. If you do, the USA is surely not the country for you. Perhaps Australia?

    Nope, the higher tax rates for the wealthy evened things out more than they are today after 14 more years of tax cuts for the wealthy. As we found out in the 1920's its not possible to grow an economy when most of the wealth is at the top. And I think you misread who the people just reelected as our leader.

    How can you have a debate with this guy? It's like an ostrich hiding his head in the sand.

    If you really believe that, fine - that's your choice. I've taken as much socialist, authoritarian bullcrap from you that I can stand for the night.

    Well to be fair, the wealth- so called- in the 90s fueling this "prosperity" was largely debt funded.

    still fixated on %, I see. the people who make more $$ spend more $$$. If I get really bored, I'll try to find some stats. but I would be willing to bet that the top 10% spends more actual dollars than the other 90% combined.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
