Why do we complain about the rich then vote for them to run our countries?
there are protests against the rich, countries are falling apart because of the rich but yet it seems ONLY the rich get elected to high offices like Prime Ministers and Presidents. does this make sense?
It has begun a long time ago, where wealth was more then an opinion, it was a loud voice with a lot of information. Rich people are often smart, if they aren't that smart, they have smart people working for them.
Basically, what do you do with wealth and smart people? "Create" information that forms opinions. There are many ways to rule masses of people by injecting and forming different opinions about everything really. Usually it's magazines, promotions, TV and etc.
There's other power: "powerful wealthy structures" which allow certain people to candidate to certain positions and then become "successful", then follow the ideology of the "powerful wealthy structure".
Hope you understand what I'm trying to say, this is my opinion.
One of two reasons. 1. We are really really stupid or 2. There is more to the loyalty than what we see. I lean more to the second choice. There is a power structure in this country and now it does not even favor the same percentage of those it was designed keep at a certain level of living. It is a very complex, technical equation, built on a primitive, unenlightened premise. The system is dying right before our eyes, so we'll see what happens next.
Because a poor man cannot afford to run for president. Sad but true. But why all the hatred of rich people these days--they are the ones who own the businesses who provide jobs.
I came to the following conclusion not too long ago. One day after much complaining about the quality of my world, I simply looked into the mirror and asked "is what I have enough for me?" If the answer was no I would have to look outside of myself for the promise of more. If the answer was yes, I was content and no one had power over me.
Viktor Frankl indicated there was a split second between the external stimulus and our reaction to it. In that split second we have opportunity to decide how we will act.
I say again humbly; I know enough, I have enough, I am enough! I will not give my power away again.
We vote for them and choose as much as possible the lesser of two or more evils because if we do not, the more evil candidate may take office and wield more devilment than we can tolerate. Then, who knows, there is a possibility of actually getting positive results in our dilemma.
This happens because it takes the money that only the rich have in order to run in the first place. So when all is said and done, the only people left standing are the rich. Sad, but unfortunately true.
Because the rich are the ones who can afford to go to the top schools that get them the connections that get them the jobs that provide even more networking to climb up to the presidental ladder. Also they are the only ones who can afford advertising campaigns, which run in the millions.
But I don't think this whole complaining about the rich is fair. Doesn't everyone want to earn more money than they do? Not everyone is born rich, a lot of people actually work hard without stepping on others' toes to get what they have. They earned it and shouldn't be discriminated against just because they went the extra mile to make something great out of themselves.
And I know there are rich people who are scumbags and get their wealth in all the wrong ways, but this doesn't only apply to them. There are scumbags in every social class. I don't think it's the fault of the rich but of a faulty system that only generates debt.
Unless you have run a large business or managed many people in some capacity you're not qualified to handle these problems anyway. It's not really the high offices where the problem begins, it starts at the local level and until people realize this nothing can change.
rich politician or rich people are the ones running for government office so people don;t have a choice..but we need to vote for someone who will govern a country by his heart and soul and not thy dangerous mind!!!..
Because a lot of us are like the Romans! Fickle minded!

BARNEY FRANK: "I'm a supporter as many in the House are, of a surtax on very wealthy people. We should probably be restraining this. But secondly, this is why a surtax on the very wealthy ought to go forward. This is a way in which we can make up for some of the problems of having to pay for...

Do you personally know of any rich people who have found a poor person and helped them? I am not talking about people standing in front of grocery stores handing out $10.00 gift cards to anyone that walks by. I mean have you ever known of any rich person seeking out a poor to help them?
