Not caring about the fact that the golden few get it all and in no way deserve it all is selling out my country.
    I am from the UK, so things may be a little different here, but my guess is not an awful lot.

    Firstly, capitalism is the only thing that works, so despite what some of the younger generations may believe, socialism and communism are ideals, and are not workable in the real world. Capitalism executed correctly can be compassionate, unfortunately greed tends to stop this. It works well if the people at the top have a conscience, and are prepared to share the success of the company with their employees. It may be that at some point governments need to legislate for this. Then there is the welfare issue. How much money should be distributed to those who can't work, for what ever reason. In the UK this is a massive talking point, as I would imagine it is in the U.S. Over this side of the pond the government waists an awful lot of money on the so called disabled. Believe it or not, you have only have to convince the doctor you are disabled and you will receive a benefit that can be cashed in for a brand new car, that is taxed, insured, and serviced for you. The benefit isn't even means tested, so you can be a millionaire and you still get it. If you have child with type of disability, you really are made for life. We also have the lazy bar stewards who won't work, but are very good at ticking the correct boxes on the claim forms. I have no idea how they do it, but they manage to live reasonably well and can go an entire lifetime without lifting a hand or paying tax. Unfortunately, as soon as the government make any attempt to cut back, the left liberals are out in force. Unfortunately these people shout the loudest, and therefore get listened to.

    Bull**** that the difference between your hate group and real people, real people like the democratic 1%, they have no qualms about paying taxes, many have said that their taxes should be raised. , something the democrats know is just the price in living in a civilized society, in fact the level of a countries civilization is in direct relationship to the amount of their taxes.

    I quit at this "If you have child with type of disability, you really are made for life. " I know one fact which is exactly the same in this country . Goofballs all have comments about people who are on disability or unemployment. And the non stop bull**** of they know a guy. There is no way for anyone to know about another persons disability or being poor or sick, just a lot of bull**** from people who think they do. Your just another voice driven by hatred of your fellow man. That wouldn't bother me because I would never have a person around me that thought like you do.

    Why would I hate the rich, I think that the wealthy rich are in your group because yours is the stingy selfish me first, second and last type people. There is more democratic rich then from the right wing hate group they call a party. They are in my party because they believe the way that I do that it is our responsibility to take care of the needy, you can keep your bull**** that me and the churches should be doing that. Which anyone who has a brain realizes that that way wouldn't work. The right is just full of people who are only about one thing , themselves.

    If your intent is to post baseless accusations, at least try to do so using proper English.
