I'm don't consider myself right by any means, but the left doesn't do a good job at keeping the rich and proud in check. I face, just like the right, they increase it, but in a different way.

The left is slightly better. Their base is much better but they are stuck with corporate democrats.

Yep. I have been saying for awhile now that the greatest threat to its survival that our country faces is the growing division between the classes. That plus the destruction of the middle class could easily lead to it's demise.

I don't agree at all. Wealthy people are considered evil and the root of all our problems.

Abo, I don't see any option other than limiting the government. Communists thought they could take away the power of the wealthy by taking their wealth, but then they simply became that which they claimed to despise.
