Most rich people are Republicans.
Maybe it’s not true but a lot of people think so.
I’ve always accepted this concept as an indisputable hard fact.
And I’ve always believed that it’s because even the most liberal people will end up becoming Republicans when they become rich because once they have money, they won’t like Democrats’ tax policy.
But now that I have witnessed Obama’s attacks on Joe the Plumber, I’m beginning to think that it’s probably the other way around.
It’s not that most rich people are Republicans because they are rich, but it’s more like because they are Republicans they were able to become rich to begin with.
The most telling thing about Obama and Democrats was this comment straight from Obama’s mouth.
“How many plumbers do you know that are making a quarter-million dollars a year?”
He mocked Joe and the crowd laughed.
Obama and his followers clearly believe that a plumber cannot make a quarter-million dollars a year. They don’t believe a plumber is entitled to make that kind of money. Of course not! Only Harvard grads, doctors and lawyers are entitlted to be rich.
Obama’s wife said ““The truth is most Americans don’t want much. Folks don’t want the whole pie. The truth is, in order to get things like Universal Health care and a revamped Education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.”
Does is sound like HOPE to you?
She’s done something remarkable. She makes me miss one of the early Bushisms “We ought to make the pie higher.”
She’s an amazing person. She makes Ann Coulter look reasonable.
Most liberals think only a handful of people can become rich.
What’s really sad is that most of the Democrats think they are not one of them.
Poor liberals think, with government handouts, they can become middle-class, and middle-class liberals think they will always stay middle-class.
They don’t think they might someday become super-rich. They are pessimists and they have this unreasonable victim mentality and they want the American government to rescue them from the misery.
That is why they always fall for that same old “Tax the rich and tax-cuts for the middle class” con job.
I used to live in Holland where the government spreads the wealth around and I can tell you that Holland is a great country for pessimists.
But Republicans, they believe they will be rich some day
They are optimists. Positive thinkers.
I minored in psychology. You can’t ignore the power of positive thinking. (Of course it has to be backed up by real hard work.)
While liberals think America is a mean country, Republicans still believe in the American dream. And when Republicans are told only 1% can become rich, they think they can be that 1 %.
I hate to use this cliche, but probably Republicans are the-glass-is-half-full type of people and liberals are more likely to think the glass is half empty.
Of course there are some optimistic positive-thinking liberal Democrats. The ones who believe in their dreams and never give up.
I guess they all go to Hollywood.
