    Yes, we can get rich liberals to push for equal rights for gays (many rich people are gay or have loved ones who are), or for sensible gun control (rich people don't want to be shot), or for protecting the environment.

    But the power of money isn't going to do squat against the trend that takes from the poor and gives to the rich. Rich liberals often think that the budget deficit is a bigger problem than the desperation of the poor and the jobless, or that the country is too poor to fund basic needs, even though real GNP is a lot higher now than it was in the days that most of America's infrastructure was built.
