This election has shown how easily the liberal democrats have been able to influence the minorities, less educated and poor in this country by telling them that they are all victims by tapping into the very core of human emotions - envy & covetousness. Manipulating them that the successful have cheated them out of what should be rightfully theirs, and that the rich not only owes them a living, but a living in the manner of their choosing.

Welcome to Capitalism 101. How does wealth accumulation work exactly do you think? In a finite closed system how do you 'acquire' wealth?? What exactly is wealth?? You argue with Beamer but do you even have any clear concept of the fundemantal principles you are talking about?

Person A finishes high school and gets a college degree in a field of their choice and a career based on whatever field. Saves money, is personally responsible and does not rack up credit card debt.
Person B Drops out of highschool, has 4 different kids by 4 different fathers and lives off the taxpayers on welfare and section 8 housing.

You tell me which of the two will go on to acquire wealth. If you picked the person who is personally responsible for themselves and works hard to make a life for THEMSELF you were right.

Yeah, and 9 out of 10 times the latter person is one who supports the GOP while the former is a Democrat. Ignorant, uneducated and in debt is what the GOP base is. Red states are overwhelmingly debtor states while Blue states are the ones that carry them. Jesus Christ, you are just entirely out of touch with even the smallest semblance of reality when it comes to the left and right.

lol sure thing cupcake, yep those people on welfare are going to support the party that wants to cut welfare. Obama gonna pay my mortgage types generally vote democrat, I know that clashes with your fantasy world but that's pretty much how it goes.

I'd be shocked if you make over $70,000, yet you're a die hard Republican.
Wealth does not play into this much. Education only at a higher level (college degrees no longer factor.)

Ignorance, possibly. Too many seem to not understand what a marginal tax rate is, or understand that in order for some to make more money others need to make less, or understand that no president has ever redistributed wealth to the extent Reagan did.

Wealth doesn't really play into it at all. While you liberals can name call and do the usual deflection tactics from our real issue, spending all you want.

None of that changes the fact that being personally responsible for oneself is the easiest way to get ahead in life. Granted I realize the very idea of being self reliant is a foreign concept to the liberal ideology to grow government and make us completely dependent on said government, however that is not a path to being successful.

I'm really not particularly liberal, given that most of this site accuses me of being a corporate shill, and way to ignore the lengthy response to you on the other page, including your failure to ever give reasoning other than "because!"

Whatever, keep going back to personal responsibility, ignoring that for much of our country they never had the opportunity to be personally responsible, and ignoring that for pretty much our entire country there's really no upward mobility at all.

Again, you focus on Person B in your silly scenario when no one else is. The fact that Person A's life won't be significantly improved over Person B's is the problem. Rather than focus on that you concentrate on Person B.

And accuse everyone of being "liberals."
