Doesn't our side have any billionaires? Can't somebody drop a house on this incubus and give us all a damn break?!
Generally no. Instapundit recently said "Democratic policies are the warfare of the very-rich, allied with the poor, against the middle class and the petty-rich
Because people who are poor are always happy to get free stuff, and the Very Rich are very rich because they valued the power the money gave them, not the security and freedom it could provide. A sane person will reach a number - be it 10 Million, or 50 Million, or 100 Million , or 250 million (You are in buy, maintain and captain your own 1500 sq ft living quarters submarine territory now) , and say, yes that is enough. I can provide for the people I want to provide for. I can achieve the things I wish to achieve, and I will now focus on the "better things in life" - be that their own family in a modest setting, or crusing the world with your family in the Nautilus . Or building a church or hospital or school. You know anything that gives your life meaning over and beyond what money can purchase for you.
The left is unsane, and continues to earn money past the point of "enough" ( which unlike Obama, I think every person can determine for themselves) into the realm of " i don't give a crap how much money I have, because what I care about is controlling PEOPLE" - because contolling people IS what they consider one of the better things in life - what will give their pathetic vile existence Meaning- and that is what your standard rich Liberal is - a person who thinks money entitles them to slaves.. to fear and respect ( they can't tell the difference) and that is why they earn more, so more people will fear/respect them, so they can hire and control more. So they can build an "empire" - and Conservatives just don't have that mindset.. If I gave you the 250 Million, would you use it to buy and build an empire you could run and control, or is that "buy your own submarine and pretend to be captain Nemo" idea sounding way more appealing?
