    Well.......the quickest answer is that it comes from the Democrat party and politicians. Hate people because they own businesses, hate people because they don't pay their workers enough, hate people because they get tax breaks, hate people because they have stuff the rest doesn't. It's brainwashing as usual.

    But in my opinion, it must have deeper roots than politics.

    Hate is usually a defense mechanism. Hate comes from fear or threat. You may hate your supervisor because he or she threatens your future with the company. Hate may come in forms of race where you feel a threat or fear for the safety of your family or investment of your home. Hate may be of gender where a person was abused by their spouse or even a stranger. It comes from somewhere. You don't wake up one morning and say "I really hate that Donald Trump. I didn't mind him yesterday, but today I wish he'd fall off a cliff."

    I guess this question is really for the libs since they lead the charge in wealth hatred. If you agree with my assessment that hate derives from fear or threat, what has the wealthy done to you in the past that makes you feel this way? Or is it you were told by the Democrat party to hate wealthy people?

    Well.......not all wealthy people of course. Liberals tend to give waivers to sports figures, entertainment figures, lottery winners, people that do things they enjoy instead of working for wealth. But if you went to college, worked your way up the ladder, made investments, and became wealthy through work, you are the worst creature on earth, and the Democrat party simply fuels that flame.

    It's jealousy, pure and simple.

    I come from a somewhat rich household worth 1.4 million.

    However, I think most rich people kind of suck,as do most poor people kind of suck.

    But, the rich people are more dangerous, especially ones in our institutions.

    Look at the brats in media, Hollywood, the NFL, or businesses hiring illegals, or outsourcing.

    Blame always falls where blame falls on each issue. Can't put every issue in one nice neat explanation/package nor can we defend the indefensible no matter where it lay. Defending the so called rich because they're rich is ridiculous, but you see this a lot in life.

    Okay, let's look at them.

    These are the people who create jobs.
    These are the people who pay all the income taxes for the country.
    These are the people who invest in the stock market where many of the working people's IRA's are at.
    These are the people who give investors an opportunity to share their company wealth.
    These are the people who create downtowns and erect huge buildings.
    These are the people who create products and services we all depend on.

    The media, Hollywood, sports are the ones that get the exemption from the liberals as I pointed out. Besides giving us something to watch on television, what good are they to society as a whole?

    And attacking or hating the rich as a whole is not? Plenty of people doing that--especially on USMB.

    The Goldilocks effect. Those who are not like me (the very rich, the very poor) are bad.

    A lot of racists use that same supposed logic. They think blacks and Hispanics are too dumb and Asians and Jews are too smart and each is threatening to white people.

    Businesses outsourcing jobs, and hiring illegals is a net detriment to this country, they're just as worthless as the celebrities in the News, the NFL, or in Hollywood.

    How so? Most don't hire illegals. The companies that outsource only do so for one reason, and that is consumer demand. The American consumer is obsessed with price, and industry is only catering to their demands.
