  •  It's the "Logic of Scarcity" (1+ / 0-)

    They think wealth is a static quantity, so in order for them to have more, someone else must have less.

    That this is a flagrant contradiction of their "free-market" ideology never crosses their alleged minds.

    Not your choice
    AND it's
    None of your damn business!

      thinks that wealth is a static quality.  Hence both parties support growth.  They just differ as to what is the best way to achieve it.

        I'm afraid that either they DO think that way, or they think that it's OK to grab mega-millions of dollars and let mere pennies trickle down to the mob.

        Neither is any kind of recipe for a stable or peaceful society. But they don't care about that either as long as they get theirs NOW.

        •  That's a very different argument (0+ / 0-)

          But the point is that if Republicans were convinced that the rich vote Republican (and I am not sure they do, since in 2008 Obama won 52% of those making 200K+) they would want more rich people.
