    Why do most people keep blaming the rich for everything from the price of goods and services to the condition of the country, after all, who made them rich?

    WE DID

    We keep buying their widgets at whatever price they ask. Was there anybody holding a gun to your head when you bought that house, or that RV, or that car, or that big screen TV, or that surround sound system, or that fancy Bedroom suit, or, or, or?

    No, we bought those things, almost exclusively, at whatever price asked. So, why do people keep pointing the finger at the rich for being wealthy? Instead of pointing the finger at them, shouldn’t we be giving them the finger?

    We voluntarily made them rich, now instead of accepting responsibility for making them rich, we simply want to take their wealth by taxing it away.

    Shame on you!

    I'll see your begging the question rhetoric and raise you:

    Why do people keep blaming the poor for the state of the world and economy given that they control nothing in the world or the economy?
