Interesting trend on here.
3 of the top 5 are Dems,
7 of the top 10 are also Dems,
but interestingly, 31 of the top 50 are Republicans

Romney made $20+ Million last year, keep that in mind when you read this

Give me all your money. It's for your own good, fool!

I'm surprised, I guess... I would have thought there would be better representation in the top 10 from Rs.

Wealth is bad, unless it's someone on your side.

Do we know how they got their money? Like, what proportion is self-made?

The X's got it through hard work. The Y's got it through pillaging companies, stealing from childrens' piggy banks, and looting the value of your home.

Insert whatever you want for X and Y.

Friedman's dead Jaxson, and bringing him up in the middle of a forum topic isn't cool.

Not true; I have to meet an honest Proletarian. The Bourgeoisie are the most Honest. Patricians and Proletarians are the least trustworthy out of the 3; the Proletarians are by far the least trust worthy, but the Patricians are the most dangerous.

Patricians = top 2%
Plebeians = bottom 98%
Bourgeoisie = Plebeian skilled workers.
Proletarians = Plebeian unskilled workers

I hope this is suppose to be sarcastic, because what Koopin said was dripping with sarcasm.

Can DanT differentiate between honest opinion and trolling?
