How's that hope and change?

The rich needs to give up their money that they cannot possibly use and make the poor richer.
No you need to worry about your own money. If someone earns money it is theirs to decide what they do with since they earned it. Why would you think it's OK to steal from another person like that? And the poor can't become richer on their own because why? Most millionaires are self-made. So why can't a poor person become a middle-class citizen if they want to? How is it the riches responsibility to take care of the underclass? I am all for charity. I am just tired of this type of mentality.

Poor people don't vote or donate money to politicians
Au contrare!! They DO vote...and more often than not for the Democrats...you know, the party that keeps giving them handouts, thereby increasing their independence on the government, and keeping them from prospering?! :o)
