    Some on this Forum, who shall remain unnamed, continually berate those who lean Conservative about the Evil Rich Republicans. Just to set the record straight!

    Those “Evil, Rich People” – are Democrats
    *
    From the, “you never hear about that from the media” file – Those “Evil, Rich People” that Democrats are always wailing about are actually – Democrats.
    In fact, the Top*3 on the list: Bill Gates, Warren Buffett &*Larry Ellison are all Democrats. Together, they are worth $126 Billion Dollars.

    An analysis of the Top 20 Richest People in America (from Forbes Top 100) reveals that a full 60% are actually Democrats. Furthermore, if you look at it from a “family” point of view and not as indivisuals, thereby eliminating*duplication caused by people from the same family being included in that Top 20 list (Wal-Mart & Koch) that ratio widens even further to:
    *25% Republican / 75% Democrat.

    (The purpose of this analysis is not who makes the most money, but where they contribute / by party affiliation. Obviously, people from the same family would tend to contribute to the same party.)

    Analyzing the data takes us even further. Not only are there more Democrats in the Top 20 list, but those Democrats are a lot more stingy with their money when it comes to campaign contributions. Republicans coughed up $5.2 million while Democrats squirted out only $2.1 Million. These statistics would indicate that*the more you have, the less you give.

    Contributions paid*to special interest groups are a little harder to track. But we have no reason not to assume that the money*these Top 1% of the population*contribute to Special Interest groups wouldn’t match (or closely match) those of their chosen political affiliation. So when you add in the money contributed to these*groups, you end up with Republican Contributions at $10 million while Democrats contributed only $6 million. Again, it appears that the Democrats are a bit more stingy with their money.

    Lest we not forget, Democrats outweigh Republicans. Not only in terms of the number of uber-millionaires, but also with their net worth. In this Top 20 group, Democrats have a combined net worth of $263.1 billion dollars while the Republicans have a combined net worth of only $143.9 billion dollars – almost half that of Democrats.

    So the next time you hear some Liberal try the “Evil Rich People” rhetoric, remind them and everyone around you that it is the Democrats who are those “Evil Rich People”, not the Republicans. Then stand back and watch their head spin.

    Yes, they're rich. But they depend upon the ignorance of the people to buy into their slamming of the rich (which includes themselves).

    I guarantee you they aren't giving up their monies for their hypocritical cause. :thumbsup:

    Their dependence upon the ignorance of people is fruitful; there is a bumper crop of them these days and they are harvesting.

    Let's face it- the "evil rich" are the ones who aren't Democrats, who are conservatives, and who likely practice Christian principles (even if they are not necessarily Christians).

    So if you're a democrat evil is neutralized, but if you're a conservative and do the exact same things you're 'evil'?

    I don't think so friend.

    Let's face it...

    The rich Democrats pretty much all support abortion with a cult like fanaticism...

    That makes them literally evil...

    And coincidentally rich.

    Those are the people who are bought and controlled, not the buyers and controllers. Our owners don't advertise.

    Does it make any sense comparing politicians for degrees of goodness? Isn't that kind of like comparing an F and an F+ on a report card?
