Again you miss the mark, I simply made the argument that wealth is not a single coordinated mindset, and that those of wealth today were not necessarily so when they were born. Consequently, most wealth is earned.
Your claim is that wealth corrupts and wealthy folks have "special interests", but you fail to recognize that all "special interest" use money to create a power base to influence. And if you list all the influence brokers, you will find a myriad of influences, some diametrically opposed. So my claim is that wealth is simply not a singlular mindset with a defined agenda other than to influence, from labor unions to trail lawyers to enviromentalists to oil companies to alternative energy companies etc. Quite a mix. Not a moral issue.
You painted wealth as bad and I simply say why? My parents taught me that all men are created equal and we are free to find our potential and to treat all with civility, regardless of wealth, And our founding fathers basically did not frame the Constitution limiting wealth, they limited government.
You really confuse me because your last posting could be that from an evangelical. Another 'special interest".
Is a government to dicate morality through legislation? Then I want a higher income because Mr. Gates of Microsoft makes gazillions of dollars. Lets spread the wealth (Obamaism).
I typically see Social Justice and Economic Justice in socialist and communist periodicals and pamphlets. And I still gravitate to the Constitution, a document limiting powers of governance.
And I too will vote, and I love the new grassroots groups or is it "special interests" that demand fiscal balance and limited government. Like those crazy Tea Pary people.
