  •  The poor are like roaches in a way. I mean no (1+ / 0-)

    disrespect.  The bible says that we will always have them with us.  I wonder what Smith and Keynes said about that?

     But the fact is that when ever nations fall the rich will either cease to be or escape to some other locale while the poor will simply scuffle and survive until the next system is set up and they are added to the play.

    Has anyone ever written anything on the social responsibility of the rich in the 'social contract'?  I mean  the wars that enrich the nation or in some cases secure it is mainly done so by the blood of the less fortunate.  George Bush and Cheney were great examples of how the priviledged can avoid the shedding of their blood during wars.  

    Why is it that people are labled socialist, communist, liberal or some word that scares the compassion out of people.

    No one should even have to suggest taking anything from the rich to give to the poor.  The poor give their blood, swear and tears.  The rich their ideas and connections for funding the idea...  

    Without the energy of the people the idea won't come to fruition...  Come on rich people smell the coffee before it is too late...
