The truth is that many liberals are rich. Bill Gates, Steve jobs, Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, most movie and TV stars, the list goes on and on, including most Democrats in congress. It is false to say the 1% are Republicans when the fact is, the rich are mostly Democrats. .
The GOP first catered to them before the Civil War.Thats way it was fought in the first place.The Republian party sided with the wealthy manufactors and industries in the North.They wanted to be able to continue sell their products to the South unimpeded.Had the South seceded the North would have feared what would have happened.

Most candidates Republican, Democrat, and minor party are moderately rich, even for minor small town offices. This is not necessarily bad as a few rich persons are very fair minded just as a few poor and middle class are fair minded. There does not seem to be a good solution as many poor folks are poor because the are 1 poorly educated 2 bad attitudes 3 poor judgement 4 selfish 5 have little management experience and other traits that make poor leaders.There are of course exceptions. We could select our leaders by throwing darts a at the phone book, but that might give us even worse government. Neil
