    The unofficial polls can say whatever they want (Because they usually do). I have no desire to see anyone have their money taken away from them from the government.

    Is it a coincidence, or is it a possibility that all of these same posts are manufactured by the same sites? These libs cant think for themselves so therefore they post the same shit over and over again. This shit is comical.
    Progressivism is going down dumbasses, you lost the war because you failed on the message.

    "Tax the rich" seems to be all they have. Do what I do, point out their utter stupidity and laugh at them every chance you get. They have nothing, and they know it. Obama rode in to town on a message of "Hope and Change", need we say more?

    :lol:

    Making $250k is not a millionaire.

    Oh, and 68 percent do not support eliminating the Bush tax cuts.

    You're high if you believe that.

    The Wealth Distribution
    In the United States, wealth is highly concentrated in a relatively few hands. As of 2007, the top 1% of households (the upper class) owned 34.6% of all privately held wealth, and the next 19% (the managerial, professional, and small business stratum) had 50.5%, which means that just 20% of the people owned a remarkable 85%, leaving only 15% of the wealth for the bottom 80% (wage and salary workers). In terms of financial wealth (total net worth minus the value of one's home), the top 1% of households had an even greater share: 42.7%. Table 1 and Figure 1 present further details drawn from the careful work of economist Edward N. Wolff at New York University (2010).

    Haha,

    An uncited comment on Huffington Post?

    I didn't see anything from Google that gave those numbers, but then I did find this from the WSJ.
