    Truth should shape people's politics, rather than politics shaping what people think is true.

    I don't dislike wealthy people but I don't understand them. If I "had money" there wouldn't be a stray animal euthanized in my part of the state, however big that could be with what I had.

    Bill Gates, for example, I have an enormous amount of respect for him and his attempts to give back through money and actions.
    How about POTUS Trump? Rupert Murdoch? The Koch Brothers?

    Well...the first two are terrible examples of philanthropists.

    I have more respect for the Koch Brothers even though I disagree with their politics.

    I don't hate the wealthy at all. I wish I knew more wealthy people. I do hate the wealthy that looks down on others because they aren't wealthy. I also hate the wealthy who gets their self worth from their wealth.

    Here's my viewpoint: hate the player, not the game.

    Because they aren't. Money is a necessary evil.

    So the general concensus is that if wealthy people use THEIR money properly they are OK?

    Some of it is jealousy, but for me, it's when wealthy people don't know how to treat people and think they should be "above" others in some way because they have more money.

    What is wealthy? I am serious. I know several self made businesspeople who have net worth north of $3 million, some $15 million. They are hard working common people and meeting them you would not know their net worth. So how wealthy are you talking about.?
