    Amazing that non-middle class people usually vote democrat. Maybe because they will be affected the least.

    How about we spread the wealth by taking any amount made over 250k from all non-essential occupations such as actors, musicians and athletes. We could then redistribute to all who make less than 100k. Think of how many regular people could by houses for the cost of one second home in Aspen. Think of how fair this would be. How can anyone justify getting paid millions to act, or sing or play sports while we have so many suffering?

    Let’s see how many endorsements would come out of Hollywood then.

    Man and Lisa,

    There are a lot of hypotheticals and speculation in your comments. Care to argue any facts or have you been led down the primrose path of leadership and decision making by faith over fact for too long?

    If you would like to base a conversation on real numbers over hyperbole, let’s have at it.

    I could never understand how the Haves can always get the Have Nots to argue for them.

    Go figure. I have nothing but I’m gonna fight for the right of the rich guy to pay less and less money because some day I hope to be that guy.

    “There are a lot of hypotheticals and speculation in your comments.”

    Mine is a proposal. Not speculation or hypotheticals. Do you even read the posts before your little fingers start spewing out the same tired tripe?

    I want to see if the liberal Hollywood elite would really like to help the less fortunate and if they really believe in redistribution of wealth.

    The real numbers are any amount made over 250k a year (a generous salary to most of us) be taken from them to redistribute to those of us not fortunate enough to be so overpaid for what we do.

    The only speculation is whether or not the liberal Hollywood elite would endorse such a plan?

    SteveO, It is not about the haves and have nots to GOP voters. It is about the fundamental right to own something without fear that big brother will take it away. If you buy a car, then another and perhaps even another you would not want the government to come to you and say that you have more cars than you need and there are others with no car so we are going to take one of yours and redistribute it.

    How is money any different than any other possession?

    If one truly cares about the plight of the less fortunate, then how does one justify any of the excesses he/she possesses when there are so many without basic needs such as homes and health care.

    Even the money spent on the computer used to blog with could have been given to someone who has just lost their job, house, pension etc. You don’t really NEED the computer and they really NEED to eat. If you have an luxury item that is not needed for basic survival aren’t you being selfish until all others basic needs are taken care of? The left is big on talking about the greed of CEO’s and other business types that make excessive amounts of money but the reality of it is that most make more than they really need. It is arbitrary to say that an excess amount made by one is o.k. yet the amount made by another is too much.

    Lefties believe in drawing a number in the sand, like 250k as being excessive. Righties believe it is none of their business how much you make.

    Honestly Manapp, I’m not sure where to begin.

    I do know a majority of your party makes less than $50,000 a year yet you back policies that DO NOT benefit you.

    Money is EVERYTHING and as a liberal non-affiliated voter I care about how my taxes are used.

    Eh. Forget it.

    It all comes down to principles:

    You can not help the poor by destroying the rich. You can not strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You can not bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You can not lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You can not further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You can not build character and courage by taking away man’s initiative and independence. You can not help men permanently by doing for them what they should and could do for themselves.” –Abraham Lincoln

    Thanks Lisa.

    I hope that some day your party finds those principles as layed out by Lincoln.

    Lisa,

    Looks like your GOP and conservative pals have taken their eyes off the principals ball and traded it for a culture of corruption that has left us morally and fiscally bankrupt.

    P.S. Would Abraham Lincoln get hazed for his name like Obama in this current climate?

    Right democrats aren’t corrupt right WS? Why is that because they say so.
    Hey Obama is the one who wants to pull down the wage payers. And pinning poor against rich and vice versa.
    He ’s the one who wants to expand government programs and have us depend on it from cradle to grave.
    Are we reading the same quote?

    pull down the wage payers

    Huh? I don’t think you’ve fully examined the Obama plan, or the McSame plan likewise.

    If you are pissed about potential socialistic policies here in America, why are you not more pissed about Iraq becoming a billion dollars a day Social Welfare state on our dime?

    Abraham Lincoln was not raised in a Muslim school.
