 Actually it's the LOVE of money that's the root of evil. Not all evil certainly but plenty of it.

Why exactly should they do any of these things? Its their money. They also pay the majority of oir taxes which means they are supporting this country. It doesnt make them evil.

If so few people have so much money then they are not paying enough taxes. How much money can people possibly need? Seriously. Studies show that beyond about 10 - 25 million dollars, happiness and contentment is not increased. 

Everything in this country is set up in their favor. Not in the favor of the middle/working class. Which is why they have so much in the first place.

They have more money, more resources, and way more power that the entire middle class in the US. The top 1% owned 80% of the wealth. That is not right. If they have that much money then they are not paying enough taxes. There is no reason for so few people to control so much.

Why should they? Just because they have money doesn't mean they should hand it to others. Look at what the welfare system has done. People think they are owed things just because they are born.
