One of the biggest myths in politics is that Republicans are the "party of the rich."
If only....then the rich might be voting for us and pouring massive money into the Republican Party.
But, but, but...KOCH BROTHERS! Yes, the evil, terrible, awful Koch Brothers who live in Harry Reid's head for free and eat the dreams of Occupy protesters. In actuality, those guys are only the 59th biggest donors in American politics. Just the six biggest union donors in American politics combined give 15 times more money than the Koch brothers have – and, of course, that money went almost exclusively to Democrats.
The rich vote Democrat as well. Eight of the ten richest congressional districts in America are represented by Democrats. Eight of the ten richest counties in America also voted for Obama.
Democrats talk about "change," but they're the party of stagnation. Their welfare policies keep the poor mired in poverty, crush the middle class and keep them from becoming wealthy, while doing little to impact the richest Americans. If you're Warren Buffet or George Soros, Democrat policies don't hurt you, but they do hamstring the next generation of entrepreneurs and keep them from ever competing with you. In other words, it's a win/win for rich liberals.
So, how does the party of George Soros co-exist with the Occupy Movement?
Democrats go to $32,000 a plate fund raisers where they plan out their legislative agenda with plutocrats over caviar and truffles and then they turn around and denounce "the rich." The rich Democrats line their pockets, their Republican-voting middle class competitors get blocked off from the high life, and the Occupy Crowd is content because it heard what it wants to hear. Liberal celebrities who've earned more acting than they could spend in ten lifetimes trash Republicans as the "party of the rich" and then vote for the party that carves out special tax benefits for them. It's all a huge con game.
