Re: Well, if they don't think it's fair...
Hi bombastic bob,
Are you of the opinion that poor people are poor because of their own failings and that the external environment has absolutely nothing to do with their poverty? Would you concede that there are systemic factors that severely hinder poor people escaping their poverty?
Likewise, do you believe that rich people are rich because of their hard work and endeavour *and nothing else*? How do you feel about the lazy rich? Does a lazy rich person deserve his/her wealth more than a hard-working poor person? It's hard sometimes to understand where Republicans (and I'll assume that you are not a Democrat or Naderite) stand on these matters.
I'm just curious.
