    I am a Democrat because I want others to have the same avenues open to them (especially educational ones) and because sometimes people DO have horrible luck.

    But there ARE those who don't have the drive, judgement or ability to take the open paths; to pretend otherwise would be dishonest.

    And yes, coming from a wealthy family does give some multiple chances after screw ups; witness our previous President's life.

      ability or judgement, and maybe you are right. But until I walk a mile in their shoes I'm not going to judge them for not taking the open paths. There are lots of reasons that people fail and not all of them are their own faults.

      Poverty = politics.
