. . . is it any surprise that most of the poopaltiun views the massive material wealth and/or power of people like high-level politicians or billionaires with the feeling that there simply MUST be something criminal going on? I submit that just the opposite is true. For example, most folks don't seem to mind this past decades huge tax cuts for the wealthy, because most of us believe (naively) that SOMEDAY it will be us. Recall the impact of Obama's tax increases on Joe the Plumber's phantom business, and all of those folks who supported him.
