Have you seen how many people work at an ipod shop? There's more employees then customers. I find your claim that they are obviously only making them self's rich highly unlikely.Quote by: Iolo
Because that would be fair? I suppose me and you are somehow entitled to Steve Jobs and Bill Gates millions, who cares that they did all the work, right?Quote by: Iolo

No, there probably never will be a society of all rich people, I'm fine admitting that, who really thinks there ever will be? Its astonishing that communist still exist today. I understand the desire for a better system, but communism, really? Its pretty sad when people view THAT as the greener pasture.No one's entitled to any money. There will never be a society of all rich people, but capitalists like yourself will never admit this.

So I don't know that many would reach 88%.
True. One would hope there would be a correlation.
Obama has been honest in both his statements and committments, but that isn't a very large sample size from which to be drawing a trend.
Citizens United, the Supreme Court case that essentially called corporations "people" for purposes of campaign contributions, came from the Republican/Bush appointed majority. Those progressives who sat out the 2000 election indirectly put a stake in the heart of any future political money reform and, by extension, any hope for a viable third party movement. Non-voters' non-participation increased, not decreased, the power of the 1% that they rail against.
Go ahead, sit out another one. That is your "valid" right, as is mine to label such irresponsible behavior something akin to stupidity.
