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

    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.
