I'm torn on the "how Americans are supposed to feel about rich people" thing. On the one hand, I wobble between Libertarian and Insane Platform Independent. On the other hand, I have a wide interpretation of the phrase "pursuit of happiness" and hate people who narrowly interpret it as "pursuit of money." Basically, I can't stand people who care a whole ton about money. They bug me personally. But I find two guys having sex disgusting, and there's no way in hell I would make it illegal, so I believe ambition/greed should be legal too.
I'd vote for a rich libertarian over a poor statist, but this election is a strong economic statist who's weak on civil liberties vs. a civil statist who will undoubtedly follow in the Republican tradition of corporate welfare to the hilt, and I tend to care more about my civil liberties than my economic ones.
Anyway, with Ron Paul running and the outcome in my state certain anyway, I don't have to decide which of these assholes to vote for, just which one I want to win. It's a tough call.

Try reading something other than Cosmo Bree. Like the Federalist Papers. Then you can comment.

Wow, the Federalist papers! You must be really smart. I mean really, really smart.
I'm going to vote for Romney now.
Yeah, that was sexist and uncalled for, wasn't it?
Try reading something other than Baseball America.....(kidding. Everyone read the Federalist papers in high school.)
