rich basically serve two purposes in this country. First, they
provide the investments, the investment capital, and the brains
for the formation of new businesses. Businesses that hire people.
Businesses that send millions of paychecks home each week to
the un-rich. Second, the rich are a wonderful object of ridicule,
distrust, and hatred. Few things are more valuable to a politician
than the envy most Americans feel for the evil rich."
