Trix, you're about to learn something mind blowing so pay close attention.
Do you know why people allow that type of unbalanced distribution of wealth? Do you know why they vote Republican or Democrat, instead of a party that would help the best interests of their particular economic class? Do you know why they stood by and agreed to pay for a bailout that was essentially a mass distribution of weath from the middle class to the super rich? Do you know why they will always oppose things like an estate tax against the super-wealthy?
Because everybody is worried about the day they will be rich.
