Redistribution of Wealth Popularity Not to Be Taken Lightly

Republicans and Democrats are both to blame for our economy and the general idea that "other people's money" is our money. The Democrats are straight up about their beliefs of taking from the rich to give to the poor. The Republicans are worse because they lie about taking other people's money. The Republicans just pile up debt -- taking the money of our children and grandchildren. Even under Ronald Reagan the national debt skyrocketed and EVERY year of his administration spent more money than the previous year. The same as EVERY President since. Taking money from the "rich" or taking it from our kids is wrong. Both parties are mentally twisted.

If you want to know who is to blame look in the mirror. Regarding Reagan you are telling the half of the story that fits your narrative. What happened to revenues under Reagan?

Agree that both parties are "twisted". However your comment about the Democrats being "straight up" is off the mark in the sense that they favor taking from other people and redistributing. They never mean taking from themselves.
Washington and the state capitols are filled with double standard politicians and their phony class war friends, be in Republican or Democrat.

A Gallup poll released this week shows that almost 60 percent of adults in America believe that wealth is distributed unfairly, with over 50 percent saying that "the rich" should be taxed heavily to accomplish a fair distribution of resources.

This news coincides with reports that the economy may well be starting to sputter and with the nation once again gripped by acts of terrorism. The results of this poll are stunningly ominous for our future as a nation that in any way will resemble what most of us have grown up knowing.

This is how we got there.
