Statistically, liberals/OWSers should be ashamed to be American.

    I've posted this stat several times. But every American citizen is, statistically, among the 10% richest humans on planet Earth. The poorest American still gets a welfare check, food stamps, gov't housing, free healthcare in the ER or medicare/medicaid, and also other benefits from the private sector (soup kitchens, shelters, charity, etc). Anyhow, 300,000,000 Americans, of all wealth status, are also among the 10% richest in the world.

    So.....left wingers.......if being wealthy and among the domestic rich is so immoral, why then are you not ashamed to be among the worlds rich? Shouldn't you forfeit all your money to someone living in India or China who is poorer than you? After all, YOU enjoy the riches that your country has provided you that the rest of the world doesn't get.

    Only if you factor in third world nations. If you keep it among industrialized nations, that falls off a bit. And wealth distribution is more equal in most of the industrialized nations. Executive to employee pay is something 11:1. In the USA it's like 470:1.

    It’s not, and liberals have no issue with wealth, free markets, or capitalism. And any liberal who says wealth is ‘immoral’ is not representative of the political philosophy, just as racists aren’t representative of conservatives.
