    how many non-progs in the top five, 10, 15, 20 richest people?

    The Progs certainly appear to be highly exploitive powerful people and mobs of useful idiots, yet the opposite claim is made.

    It's because liberals aren't the communists you people feel the need to portray them as.

    Too funny.

    Even Communists recognize the need for capitalism to support their goals.

    Because to be a leftist you must live in a bubble world void of reality. Wealth makes that easier.

    Jeff Bezos created a 21st century business empire, while Joe the Plumber and pals yearn for the 19th century. You guys tell me why so many rich people are progressives.

    The super wealthy already made their stash, probably parked in offshore accounts and in assets that are not taxable. Fine with them if the gov't raises taxes on the forms of income that they don't use, how much money do most progressives give back to the gov't or to real charities that actually help the afflicted and less fortunate rather than non-profits that promote in some way their political objectives? As I'm sure the richest Conservatives do also, to be honest.

    While no doubt one of the causes for the wealthy to appear Prog how do you explain thing like the blackmail by the Major Sports Franchises?

    True but how do they sell their idiot drones on the idea that they do this out of the goodness of their hearts?
