    Obama is worth over 10 million dollars so is he a plutocrat?

    No it has less to do with the amount you have in the bank and more to do with your convictions and feelings towards your fellow man. BTW Romney wipes his ass with $10mil dollar bills.

    Then it's obvious by what you say that Obama, because of his convictions and feelings towards his fellow man, is the real plutocrat. Romney is so generous with his wealth that he gives more than 30% away every year. You have not been doing your homework on either Romney or Obama. The only homework that you do on either man is when the Main Stream Media is telling how great Obama is.

    By the way, there are no such things as $10mil dollar except in Obama's monopoly money that Bernanke keeps printing.

    His mindset is definitely plutocratic and he certainly is not suffering poverty on any level.

    Don't look now but, we are governed by a plutocracy. We were founded by plutocrats. Who do you think the founding fathers were? Is plutocracy a good thing? That really depends on how closely the ruling class sticks to our constitution.

    Barack Obama didn't come from the ruling class, but it didn't take him long to jump on board. The folks that are paying $25000 up to dine with him are all members of the ruling class.

    Yes, he is a Plutocrat along with the Republican Party in General. They don't want the common folk to have anything to do with Government except let them be in Control so they can continue their no taxes on the Rich and Corporations can pollute, send jobs overseas all they want. Start Wars THAT THEIR CHILDREN don't have to fight.

    After they WRECK THE ECONOMY, it is always someone else's fault. Romney is good at LYING that it is President Obama's fault the Economy has not come back.

    NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT REPUBLICANS CONTINUE TO BLOCK ANY AND EVERYTHING TO GET THE COUNTRY BACK ECONOMICALLY, and Continue to do so AND as with the Last Republican President during the Great Recession and the Bush Administration Tanked the Economy for the Second time since the 30's.

    If you complain, as they seek to take your voice and your vote away by convincing those average people that the other average people are trying to take their money, when it is the Plutocrats who are sucking all of the Oxygen out of the Room. They want a Government that is only BEHOLDEN to them, not the PEOPLE AT LARGE.

    In order to accomplish that they MAKE all types of ACCUSATIONS that is Government that is trying to HARM the citizens. If you take a look at the Republican Dominated State Houses,...

If you take a look at the Republican Dominated State Houses, How many more DRACONIAN LAWS have they piled unto Women's Health, DISBANDING City Governments to be taken over by the State, Workers Rights, the Poor and Minorities USING BIG GOVERNMENT TACTICS.

    Then to make sure they Stay in Control they SUDDENLY SEE VOTER FRAUD - so they must NOW IMPLEMENT VOTER SUPPRESSION LAWS.

    Remember if you are not wealthy and we let Democracy work you will get Presidents, like Truman, Clinton, and "whatever are they going to do", a Black Man like Barack Obama, which was really the last straw.

    Plutocrats cannot have that.

    Call the President all of the names you want if that makes you feel better. The facts are Republicans are continuing to OBSTRUCT any recovery of this Country to protect the Rich and Corporate Polluters and their HATRED of this President, personally. They started scheming on Day one of his Presidency to Torpedo him and the Country.

    Yes, just like the Republican Dominated State Houses and Governors are writting MORE LAWS ON TOP OF LAWS to restrict, Workers, Women, the Poor, Children, Minorities, (Voter Supppression), and Main Stream American with MORE BIG GOVERNMENT. The Activist Leaning Conservative Supreme Court is doing everything they can to REVERSE LAWS that were settled Decades Ago to help Republicans Step on Everybody.

    I am not trying to change the mind of anyone like you who seems to be in an IRON-CLAD BUBBLE of MIS-INFORMATION and devoid of Facts.

    No more comments from me to you, it would be useless. I don't debate Furniture. We agree to disagree.

    He believes in economic Darwinism where the rich destroy the weaker. His platform reflects it with lower tax rates for him paying 13.9% of income in taxes while the rest of us average 20.9%. It is only be being fair that the economic system works where both the investment and working class move up in income together. The right to a fair days pay for a fair days work has not been done for a decade.

The crux of the entire question of eliminating poverty, he points out, lay in the institution of private property, for this principle was the source of the evils of society.

"... The accumulation of personal property," he wrote, "is, in many instances, the effect of paying too little for the labor that produced it; the consequence of which is, that the working hand perishes in old age, and the employer abounds in affluence." God had never opened a land office, he held, from which perpetual deeds to the earth should be issued. He spoke, he boldly declared, for "all those who hive been thrown out of their natural inheritance by the introduction of the system of landed property." It is of some interest to note that Thomas Jefferson observed, in a letter to Rev. James Madison in February, 1787: "Whenever there are in a country uncultivated lands and unemployed poor, it is clear that the laws of property have been so far extended as to violate the natural right. The earth is given as a common stock for man to labor and live on. If for the encouragement of industry we allow it to be appropriated, we must take care that other employment be provided for those excluded from the appropriation. If we do not, the fundamental right to labor the earth returns to the unemployed.

    When the rich plunder the poor of his rights, it becomes an example of the poor to plunder the rich of his property, for the rights of the one are as much property to him as wealth is property to the other and the little all is as dear as the much. It is only by setting out on just principles that men are trained to be just to each other; and it will always be found, that when the rich protect the rights of the poor, the poor will protect the property of the rich. But the guarantee, to be effectual, must be parliamentarily reciprocal.

    For others who do not know the facts...
    Romney paid the 38%+ in taxes for the money when he first made it..the 13% that the socialist Obama is talking about his on his capital gains. That means for those who failed to complete an education is the % of profit you receive from money "Invested" either in a bank, stock, etc....if you increase the capital gains taxes then the "so-called evil rich" will pull their money out of companies which means less jobs, the inability of companies to expand and more layoffs.

    WRONG, he never paid 38% on it cause HE NEVER worked to earn it, the money he made last year came almost entirely from capital gains, his money makes him more money and most Americans think he can afford the same rate as they pay.

    Not necessarily. Some of the rich are philanthropists-they do good things with the bulk of their money by helping those less fortunate than they are. Some of the other rich don't use their money to force their philosophy on others (Al Gore), and are satisfied in just helping their family by assuring that their children and grandchildren will have a good life by continuing the family business and working hard to maintain the American Dream. Other rich people are satisfied just to have the power that comes from their years of hard work to achieve their fortune and from running their business to continue making a profit. Not everyone in the world is out for 'EVIL' concerns and self fulfillment.
