    Take a minute and look at the FACTS.

    This is wht drives me nuts about the tea party patriots. The 'goals' all serve to increase the power and wealth of those at the top. The refuse to look at government as the only force that can bring balance to wealth.

    No sane person can look at the inequality and convince me this is what the founding fathers intended. I have read Jefferson and I KNOW it's not.

    The facts to why someone is wealthy rich and someone who is poor.

    Knowledge is Power. America is the land of opportunity and that's why the rich, the poor, the intelligent and the illiterate want to come here.

    The formula to be Rich or Wealthy
    go to school, get an education and further your education to get a good paying job
    With the exception of a few, the above takes a lot of hard work and long hours of study and prepares to attain the higher goal. Far extremes are someone who drops out of school becomes illiterate and possibly end up in prison.Now the other extreme gets educated ( paying a high cost for his education ),works to pay for his education during the day, studies at night for many years and then goes to work at the bottom of the wage scale. After many years of working ( maybe 10,12,14 or more hours a day) reaches the wealthy state.

    Social Justice Progressives claim that the rich and poor scenario has to be changed.The progressive ( socialist or dictator )confiscates a larger portion of the rich mans wealth  and gives some of it to the poor man who by his own actions hasn't worked or been denied work because he is illiterate.

    Those out of work right now don't want a handout, they want jobs to feed their families, pay their bills and raise their families. Unemployment is 9.7% and our government fails to correct the problems after 16 months on the job.

      Charts # 8 and 16 show your opinions about upward mobility and the growing gap between the wealthy and poor in this country - is a fantasy.

      Cindy McCain is a classic case in point. She inherited it from daddy. Period.  The FACTS I pointed at show that if you were born with it you keep it and pay a lower tax rate then the stiff working 12 hours a day who has NO chance of breaking into the top 1%.

      It's largely up to the private sector to relace the jobs lost by the Republican Recession of 2008. It took years of GOP mismanagement  (low taxes for the rich, monster deficits for years in 'good' times for the wealthy, no gov'r regulation, corporate welfare for the conected corporations feeding at the trough, and runaway GOP spending) to create the conditions for the  recession and it will take years to get out.

      That was true of the Great Depression, another GOP sponsored event brought about the same way, with the same formula that conservatives want to return to.

    Traditionally the Democratic Party has use the "US against THEM" tactic to control the masses.

    The reality is Democrat or Republican.  The people at the top are clever manipulators.

    Vote in all the Socialists you want and the quality of living for the poor will NOT increase.  Never has, and never will.

    But what will happen is the opportunity for the common man to climb the ladder will be removed.

    Elected Officials are puppets to the ruling Elite.  They are bought and sold... both parties.

    The Wealthy Elite can perpetuate this poor vs rich reality by manipulating the Money Supply. Right now they use the Democrats to impose their agenda... when the Democrats get voted out they will use the Republicans.  And they will get both sides fighting each other making outlandish claims against one another... right up to the point that once again nothing will change.  But the people will continue to suffer. And the Super Rich will enjoy the benefits of their labors.

    Until the people stand up and demand the Fractional Reserve Banking System and CENTRAL BANKS are removed... this will continue.

    Everything else is just a diversionary tactic to fool the uneducated.

    Want to divert attention from the Economy... talk about the War, too much Talk of War... lets talk about Haiti.

    Same old stuff.  Lots of injustice in the World.  And perpetuating a wealth distribution model based on Socialism will not redistribute the wealth.  It will just create disincentives.

    Get rid of the Federal Reserve, put the money supply back in the hands of the people.  Eliminate the ridiculous Debt Based Model and let people own their own destiny.

    Just today the Dow Jones Average went over 11,000 based on the perception that the European Bailout of Greece will stabilize the Euro.

    So what are they doing?  They are taking a country that can not pay it's debts... and get this - THEY ARE LOANING THEM MORE MONEY AT INTEREST!

    That's like giving a Heroin Addict more Heroin.  And that's the result of Central Banks.  Debt, Debt, Debt... shouldered by the people.

    If you can't see the problem in letting Secretive Private Bankers control the money supply... then you will never understand why the "poor" will always be poor.

      Mike - there are no socialists in power in DC.

      You miss the point about debt. The rich are payind less and less. It's not an opinion. It's a FACT. It's on charts!!!! Can you read????

      The national debt has been WAY higher thanit is now and we got out fine 1n the most prosperous (middle class) decades of the last centrury - the mid-40s to mid-60s with  the highest tax rates for the rich of any period in the last century.

      RIGHT! The period of greatest middle-class prosperity of the last centrury coincided with the highest tax rates on the rich. Reagan was a nice guy but he was a political fraud. He trippled the national  debt while spinning the myth that the 'prospeity' was the result of lowering taxes.  Complete fraud.

    Fed system or not, fractional reserve or not, the uberrich have been handed a silver platter on which to eat.
    Suppose the presidents are just tools, and the elite's let them have their little pet projects to have fun with....what do Republicans usually choose? Giving to their feefee pals at the top. Democrats usually aim for the lower classes, so they can get some relief too.
    So, if we have just little crumbs at the mercy of these overlords....at least with a Democrat it won't all go to the top---it will be shared a little.

    And, it's not like they don't know what's going on. I've heard Ron Paul, Marcy Kaptur, Dennis Kucinich, Dana Rorbacher, and Grayson all speak on this subject pretty forcefully in hearings.
    And Barney Frank, as Chairman of the banking committee(?) ORDERED Bernanke to give a report on the Federal Reserve to Ron Paul, who charged them with malfeseance, going all the way back to Nixon and the cover-up money for Watergate!
    Oh yes, they know what's going on....and they are speaking up.
    But in the meantime, you can't deny the income disparity.
    That is proof positive where the Repubs heart is....with the big bucks! At the expense of those who can hardly make ends meet. For shame.
