I understand why people on the left feel the way they do. Web page after web page makes it clear that the number one issue on the left is income inequality and disparity of wealth. This is an issue that has rising to the forefront for years, fueled mostly by left leaning politicians, not to mention a suffering economy. This issue has been a concern of mine as well.
I see countless articles claiming that disparity of wealth is a threat to democracy. The theory is that the rich and powerful control the political system, which is probably a half truth. As Michael Moore said, a millionaire gets no more votes than a poor person, and there are far fewer millionaires than there are the rest of us. Despite big income inequality in 2008 and 2012, the American people elected a left leaning socialist who promised to raise taxes on the rich.
Hillary and Bill Clinton have benefited from rich donors and foreign donors, and have been paid exorbitant fees to give speeches to Wall Street bankers and foreign leaders. If you don't want a politician in the pocket of the wealthy, then don't vote for Hillary.
Some disparity of wealth is healthy because it shows that you have a vibrant growing economy. It used to be that if you wanted to get rich, or richer, you would compete in the marketplace. However, today, the way people get rich is they use government to shut down their competitors or use government to grant them special favors.
If you plan on voting for Hillary, I want to tell you why conservatives feel the way they do. It is the birthright of every Unites States citizen to live in a free country. Economic freedom is an essential part of living in a free country, because without economic freedom then you have very little freedom at all. Economic freedom is essential for economic growth and prosperity. Conservatives feel that their birthright is being stolen from them. The country was founded on the principle of limited government to protect freedom, but for several decades there has been a concerted effort to turn the United States into a European style socialism, and it mostly has succeeded.
The Constitution of the United States was worded to limit the power of the federal government. The 10nth amendment to the Constitution specifically states that those powers not assigned by the Constitution to the Federal Government belong to the States or the people. Yet, liberal judges have pretty much nullified any Constitutional limit on federal power. Conservatives feel that this is one of the most important elections in our lifetime, because if Hillary is elected then she will appoint more liberal judges, especially to the Supreme Court, who will render any Constitutional limit on government power meaningless.
