Obama does not pay his fair share. He is a millionaire and did not pay 30% like he said all millionaires should be paying.
It is very funny that you are pretending the President of the USA is not successful. It is also funny to see so many people who are not millionaires stick up for the millionaires, I guess we should assume that they millionaires money was well spent buying people to convince the non-millionaires to stick up for them and buy more Tide from your local Walmart.

Wining the lottery is your only real safe path to wealth in the USA, and even then you will not be all that wealthy. The better path to wealth is selling illegal drugs, it is more dangerous, but the likelihood of becoming wealthy is much better.

When I go into schools and speak to children I encourage many children to investigate illegal drug sales as a possible career option. It is much better than flipping burgers and they actually earn real money in addition to learning valuable skills that will help them throughout life, if they don't get shot.

Does anyone recall Al Gore's "People versus the Powerful" slogan? It did not pan out and he dropped it almost as quickly he adopted it. I would guess that Pres. Obama would drop his 'soak the rich' rhetoric too but I'm not yet sure that Pres. Obama is as smart as even an Al Gore.

Last time I checked, it it was Rubio that said we are a nation of haves, and soon-to-haves. In fact, it's also the mantra of the Republican party that everyone can be rich if only they worked hard. In fact, it was Mitt Romney who uttered those words--I want everyone to be rich.

Contrast with the damn-dirty apes on the other side of the isle (I.E., non-republicans), who realize that not everyone is going to be rich, so in the face of adversity, start things like Occupy Wall Street, which brings light to the tremendous income inequality, or fight for social programs, to help bridge the gap between some of the most impoverished persons, and our working classes, and help them make a living.

We've come to a point in our society that in order to just make a living, to live the American Dream, to be able to send your kids off to school, we have to work 60+ hour weeks.

Most people in this country are under assault by the wealthiest elites more interested in making a dollar than caring for their fellow man.

Liberals think everyone can be rich? It's not true. I think the "socialists" realize what's going on, and your owners are doing everything they can to squelch the noise.

But it's only going to get loud.

Oh right, because being a successful writer apparently isn't earning your millions? No, when it's someone you hate, it's scamming people.

Yes we know, you don't think it is possible for people with dark skin to be intelligent.

In complex civilizations of thousands/millions of people, there will always be an "upper crust". Only in small, hunter/gatherer societies will you find people more or less equal in what they can call their own.

I like having a rich class AND I consider income inequality to currently be a problem.

The problem isn't that the rich have more, it's that the middle class is declining and the poor are becoming even worse off.

The rich class doesn't detract from the American family, but the current state of income inequality does.
