  •  Gates and Ballmer are Liberals? (0+ / 0-)


    With the exception of Soros, they just don't contribute to liberal causes as some noted conservative billionaires.
    And why is that?

    Clearly not all Billionaires think alike.

    1.) Regardless of what goes on in Bloggo world, some don't care about politics. They donate nothing, period.

    2.) Thankfully, some billionaires are not uber greedy Randian bigots, constantly griping about how high their taxes are. Some are OK with the usual tax breaks, deferrments, off-shoring, etc. They take advantage of what's allowed by law and pay what taxes they have to.
    They also don't care much about politics.

    3.) Some billionaires give to both political parties; they realize money buys influence. They don't give a crap about political "ideology" or culture war; they just want an in with whatever interchangeable political power is in power at the moment.

    Don't assume Billionaires are as partisan as most everyone in Bloggo world; that's a mistake.

    "Think of _Huffington_ as HuffPost's more stylish offspring". A. Huffington. Uhhh, OK! Gimme a break.
