    Wow, I was very disappointed by the Ron Paul - Terminator video suggested at the end of this one.

    But on a more relevant note, what a toolbag. I`m gonna not vote for him even more!

    The Class Warfare has been going on for decades. Only difference is that people have started resisting. Not against contractors and factory owners, but banks and financial institutions.

    Rememer, it`s only "class warfare" when you fight back.

    I`m not envious. I don`t begrudge anyone who earned anything and is successful.

    I am, however, fracking pissed off that they STOLE MY MONEY. That`s not envy.

    There is a class warfare going on. The organized attempt to get rid of the middle class.

    He will never be president.

    In America we don`t begrudge rich people. We begrudge their ability to hire lobbyists and change rules in their favor. All of what they do is completely constitutional. In many cases like Romney`s it`s morally reprehensible but indeed constitutional.

    When you buy congress and you buy the presidency and you buy judges with all your wealth. Then you take peoples homes while bailing out the banks, people get upset. Then people get guns. Then people fight it out in your mansions.

    cant wait for the last part.

    He answered the question poorly. He was clearly focused on someone specific and failed to answer the more general question.

    Questioning how someone obtained their wealth is jealousy?

    Well now, I guess people need to stop asking why my money is always covered in cocaine.

    Now is someone EVER going to ask Obama even ONE `tough question`? Aside from Joe The Plumber of course.

    In a capitalistic society, you will have the ultra rich, or the 1%, and the ultra poor. It`s the nature of the beast. What I have a problem with is allowing the ultra rich, who are a small number of people, to keep more of their money, and then turn around and use it to control the lives of the rest of the populous.

    It was at least an honest answer...but it does reveal the intability of the rich to consider that the system that they benefit from may be unfair. And it is the elite that has been waging (and winning) class warfare since the 1980`s in the USA. Which is sad, because there`s so much good that could come from a more just America.

    @ jops - Colbert fell second in the polls in South Carolina, the next primary. Ahead of Huntsman, and Colbert`s not even running. Last night Steven said he`d make some announcement tonight on his show about it. Should be fun.

    Romneys tax plan increases middle class tax from 400-4000 depending on income level while dropping the rich tax by 5%.

    Sure, let`s tax the unemployed people. Good idea.

    Its about corruption not envy no one is protesting because the system is filled with envy. How can the voice of the people be heard when we have to compete with corporations with virtually unlimited finances. It really saddens me that so many people don`t get this but whatever people vote for the status quo and never evolve let the corporations take over and see what you get.

    Compare the reactions in hereto that in the post about Ted Williams. Or how much you complain about pay packets of Steven Colbert, Jon Stewart or any number of your sporting stars. It is Class warfare, just choosing targets we think as undeserving.
    The annoying thing is we`re pulled in two opposite directions the more we compensate people for circumstances the less fair the system becomes because to pay for that we have to tax people, so you start punishing people for good luck. The less you compensate the more people are allowed to choose and work to their abilities and luck the more inequality you will have. People weren`t complaining until the economic cycle went into recession.
    What really get`s me is how people have no qualms about where there clothes come from, how there food is made, where all there gadgets come from. An entire factory in China threatened mass suicide the other day, one connected with Microsoft and Apple... Wheres the mass boycott or protest on these com

    I`ve really grown tired if these rich pricks.
    There`s a reason people say history repeats itself.
    I think they need to go back to school and pop open their history books to the chapter titled "The French Revolution".
    As time goes on, and it gets harder and harder for everyone to get by, there will come a breaking point. In my opinion the phrase "class warfare" is on par with "let them eat cake".
    In any case, I have a room full of assault rifles, handguns, shotguns, and various sharp pointy things that hunger for the blood of a rich man. Who am I to deny them? :)

    Immediately after the interview, Mitt calmed his frayed nerves by repeatedly punching a homeless woman in the throat while muttering the phrase `I love my people.`

    "there`s so much good that could come from a more just America."

    thanks, hi2pi. All fatty/lazy jokes aside, we have a lot to offer the world (and by that I don`t mean go to war with other people) if we could just get our priorities straight

    I don`t see it as envy either, I see it as a simple thing like balancing a check book. People ask questions to make sure everything is accurate and legal, ethical (not fair), and mutually beneficial. It often seems we rob Peter to pay Paul, and obviously we spend more than we make as a nation. Top execs get huge bonuses, federal wages go up, but the average Joe`s wages have remained stagnant despite taxes and the cost of living increasing. I`d say that people are concerned for their own welfare and not envious of the rich, we just want to be sure they`re using the money they`ve acquired for positive outcomes and not to line the pockets of the few at the detriment of the many. Of course Romney has always had a silver spoon so he wouldn`t see it this way.

    That`s an ad hominem attack--Republicans are full of `em. Even if it is true that they are jealous of the billionaires (I personally agree with that statement) it in no way impacts the veracity of what they`re saying.

    It`s people like this that give capitalists a bad name.

    *sigh*. Ron Paul...2012.
