    It would not be possible for the wealthy to make money if there were not workers to do the work and consumers to buy the products. Remember that.
    Think hard about what you just said.

    It would not be possible for the wealthy to make money if their were not workers to do the work. Where in the hell did you ever get that revelation? I agree with your statement is there was no people on this planet. That is how you far leftist think. The trouble is there are people on this planet and the planet is full of people that want to work and those workers are also consumers. DUH

    What you refuse to realize, not all people are alike, there are entrepreneurs and worker bees. And they both need each other, however the worker bees don't have the intelligence or work ethic to save money and then risk it to start a business, wich could fail and they loose all they invested and the worker bees then go and find another job, leaving the entrepreneur broke.

    You are a hen philosopher. There was this man who had a hen. So he philosophized that the head was eating and costing him money, but the rear end was making him money because it laid eggs. His philosophy led him to the conclusion that he should cut off the head, but keep the rear end. That is what you are like, a hen philosopher.[/QUOTE]

    With a stupid analogy such that you have no idea how an economy works.

    I didn't miss the point at all, sir. The point is that the middle class needs jobs and they won't have them if there aren't people rich enough to need to hire people to work. It's a two way street. The rich aren't doing you any favor giving you a job--he or she needs the labor. And you aren't doing the rich any favor by working for him or her because you need the job. So the worker and the employer form a contract in which one provides the labor and the other provides the compensation the employee needs. It's a pretty nifty system. And I believe most smart people understand how the system works to the advantage of the middle class and those smart people would include a lot of Republicans. I'm not so sure about some others these days though..

    If you understand the point that the rich need and are supported by the middle class then you should understand that the interests of the middle class should also be prioritized and that it is not that you give everything to the wealthy and allow them to trickle down as little as possible.

    That system worked to the advantage of the middle class, only after the New Deal, and the stiff regulation on business and commerce enacted by FDR, which protected the working class, and produced a middle class that (as already demonstrated to you) thrived under those conditions, through the 1970's, until those gains began to reverse with Reagan's deregulation.

    No. Same goal, different methods of reaching it.

    If you understood the point that the middle class need and are supported by the risk taking entrepreneurs, etc. then you should understand that the interest of the entrepreneurs should also be prioritized. They are the ones that create innovation and rick taking to create jobs. This is not that hard to understand
