Thomas Sowell Quote

“Any politician who starts shouting election-year demagoguery about the rich and the poor should be asked, "What about the other 90 percent of the people?”

I like Thomas Sowell, very practical fellow.

Wealth demagoguery distorts equity, and justice and eliminates the concept of law in a credit society.

    There are two kinds of people,those that are rich and the rest of us who wish we were rich.

    All talk about rich and poor is aimed at those who do not consider themselves rich and thus its design is to prey upon people's desires to get something for nothing.

    The fact that 5% of the folk have 90% of the wealth what purpose is government anyway. Why don't we just let them run things, and maybe they really do. They ran things in the slavery south and now in the illegal nation, nationwide.

    Waffler, our consitution has no provision for redistribution of income. It is not nor ever was the reason to have government.

    Likewise name any form of government in the world that does not have a skewed division of wealth? Even the most socialist nations have the wealth concentrated with government officials that can enforce their greed with the power of the police and military.

    Some people hate the poor, some hate the rich - There will always be both. The Constitution doesn't guarantee wealth , It only guarantees the equal right to pursue it but the government is trying to take that right by punishing success and rewarding failure.

    obscene wealth and abject poverty are both abominable. It is the political responsibility of the majority to reduce the impact of both extremes.

    How do you think the uber-wealthy got that way? Government contracts!! Follow the money -- this is the globalist aristocracy. And just like the favored Court of the Crown, their wealth comes from the King's subjects. War takes on many forms -- as does servitude. The Waffler's of this world merely wish to find favor with the Crown, as they have seen the alternative. A house slave is preferable to a field slave.
