In todays world, in America (as I'm sure in other axis of good nations, but nevermind them) I see most rich as socialist and most poor as capitalists. the media (CNN, FOX, MSNBC etc.) will not explain to you why, but I will: Rich: in most cases they hijacked national resources: Pharmaceutical industry giants, oil industry giants, communication giants such as verizon who usurped control of tax payer funded, military invented internet and telephone services via satelites paid by tax money (eg. socialism) and so on, and so on. Poor: in most cases those employed by a socialist system/government are not poor, and therefor have to resort to capitalism for survival. and in a system where more and more money is being squeazed out of economy (which is like blood to an animal) the body of capitalism is freezing up. I firmly believe in capitalism, as I always have, but to all of you liberals I am not sure how I should get thru to you or if I should even try, you need to snap out of your delusions planted to you by the media, it is poison. your mind is poisoned. let me try to explain one more time: If the rich would drain American capitalistic system with taxation, there would be a lot more money around, and a lot easier to survive. of course many do not realise this, but our monthly phone bills and energy bills are no different then taxes, and that is what the idiot right does not understand. also, for the same exact reason - because media poisons their minds.
