I keep telling younz, all these people R & D alike have never had to worry about & in many cases ever even had to work for money. In their mindset they are much the average simply because the poor are lazy & invisible to them, it's a entirely different world in which they live & function. Only difference is many here only see it as one sided
but I guess it's the world that you live & function in.
Or some had to work their asses off and invest and risk everything to get there, and despise the lazy sit at home types that bleed them more and more every day. There are two sides at both scales. I have also met a lot of poor people that work their asses off as well that do not take from the system and appreciate the work it takes to improve their lives. So everyone needs to see the big picture. But I see your point and agree its both R & D. And politicians do seem to have that holyier that though attitude that they can just ignore us till we are needed again.
Yup ! I've known quite a few wealthy folks from both sides.
I've also known some that, even thought they never had to "work" a day in their lives, they were humble, down-to-earth generous people that you'd never know they came from wealthy families. But those types seem to be fewer and fewer these days.
What I don't like is how the wealthy in one party in particular are often trying to beat the wealthy in the other party over the head as being greedy, while trying to appeal to the not-so wealthy for votes. Just do a web search using "republicans democrats and donations to charity", of who donates more to charities, R or D, and who wants to donate with other people's money, to see who really is the more greedy wealthy ones.
