If there are more rich liberals than conservatives, doesn't that imply it's smarter to be a liberal?

Hint: wealth has nothing to do with how you feel economic policy should be structured. Just because you make an obscene amount of money doesn't mean you think the system is boned, and just because you think the system is completely asinine and creates incentives to cut jobs instead of create them doesn't mean you can't be wealthy.

Hint: all those 1%ers you guys like to cry about? They're democrats.

Show me one post where I bitch about a guy making $250k. C'mon.
Or stop lumping me in. Not everyone is the political stereotype you painfully are.

Beamer you've gone on more than once about the supposed finite pie and how those are the top are hoarding it. Come on now.

But I don't think it's 1%. I bitch about guys making two million, not two hundred thousand.

And what makes you think the pie isn't finite? Is the US making an infinite amount of money suddenly? Is the middle class actually seeing their salaries increase for the first time in 30 years?

Are people good at spending within their means? Are those in the middle class saving for retirement? I realize the words personal responsibility to a liberal are like a cross to a vampire, but that's what reality is, Big daddy government is not there to hold your hand and provide a life for you, toughen up cupcake.

I saw my salary increase by 6k in july. If one works hard enough they advance.

Actually, I think the fact that our government has zero sense of personal responsibility and that we keep electing idiots that fail to do anything is one of the biggest issues in our country.

But personal responsibility only goes so far. Again, sticking with the basketball metaphor, if you tie a guy's ankles together do you blame him for not scoring a basket and tell him it's his personal responsibility to do better?
At some point "personal responsibility" only goes so far. Especially when money overcomes it. Trump has gone bankrupt how many times? But being born rich overcomes personal responsibility and makes him even wealthier.

Also: shut up about your stupid partisan bullshit. I'm neither liberal nor conservative. And shut up about your "toughen up, life isn't fair" bullshit. To play that card (and troll), I make more than you, I'm just educated enough to know how the current rules of the game will result in the entire economy falling on its face.
