well; i cant disagree with the study; its absolutely correct
my opinion is that their rush comes mostly from knowing they have ultimate power over everyone else and can do almost anything they please with no
repercussions to their actions
i personally would get a huge rush out of feeling so important and letting my ego soar to hights a spaceship could not achieve lol
they are arrogant beyond belief; i have yet to see any powerful person exert humility towards poor people like myself
in fact; im almost sure they hate people like me with a passion; just because i happen to randomly be born into a poor family
im almost certain they view people like me as inferior and probably sub-human , and undeserving of any respect
they certainly treat poor people this way; in every facet of life
as if they are "Above Us" and "Smarter than Us" and "Better than us"
its no wonder i look at them with contempt; they have never done anything to benifit anyone except themselves
they lie to us by saying "if you work hard, you will make it" but the reason it is a lie is because of this
Look at any person who busts their butt daily at McD's cleaning nasty toilets, look at any person who digs ditches every day, this is true hard work;
yet they never make it; 99.99999999% of them are stuck with crap jobs their entire life; barely making it paycheck to paycheck; their savings after
50years is something like a debt of 20,000$ to the banks, and they die passing debt on to others
do you call that "achieving success"?
is this the pay off for a life of hard work?
and then theres people like paris hilton; who will never have to struggle to make it her entire life; she was born into wealth; and she doesnt know
anything about the reality the rest of us face
shes arrogant and sees people like me as lesser sub-human species
this is not really an assumption on my part; it is something i learned by observing their behavior and analyzing their statements and actions
if the "elite" treated the "average" person with Respect; perhaps the average people would not resent them
but their increasing arrogance has brought them in a curious prediciment
people like me; who seek to become involved in politics; wish to tax people like her 99% of their money and reduce the tax burden on fellow poor
i doubt us poor people could Ever gain any power
but we can be hopeful i suppose
how many senators or legistlators were dirt poor when they ran for office? how many governers? presidents?
Very Very Few, if any
they say you have to be rich to get into office *to afford the Campaign*
you have to "know people" and "have $$$" to make any differance, and people who have so much money are distracted from reality so easily by their
huge massive wads of $$$ ; they quickly forget 1000s of facts in favor of their own egotistically scewed point of view
you could call me egotistical; but im a no-body poor person; any egotistical behavior i could express would be easily dwarfed by the in-born egotism
of the "elite"
perhaps i am wrong about 2 or 3 cases; but im fairly certain this is an accurate summery of the current state of affairs in the world Today
*and this probably applies to all time frames thru history
the poor have always been on the short end of the stick; even tho we outnumber the "elite" 99 to 1
the only reason they have gotton away with spitting in our faces and laughing at us; is because we allowed them too
of course; if we did ANYTHING agianst them; they would put us in jail on trumped up charges or destroy our lives in any other number of ways
thats why most people feel powerless to affect any change in this screwed up unfair system; because the police forces who have GUNS, will brutally
opress us if we attempt any action agianst the "elite"
what if 20million american poor folks marched on washington DC and demanded a new gov't of 99% poor people???
dare i say they would instigate a riot and then proceed to open fire w/rubber bullets and tear gas on the massive crowds? possibly bringing in the
military and any other police they could muster?
im fairly certain the "elites" would do anything to stay in power; even have us shot with real bullets
and everyone knows they have the biggest stash of mercenaries and weaponry,
Its no wonder we feel powerless; because theres really nothing we can do without getting shot or arrested
maybe im just really tired tonite and just blabbing complete stupidity, but i doubt it
im sure most people would agree with me, but i dont know
ill have to wait and see how bad i get flamed i suppose
i certainly hope i dont get flamed, i dont like being burnt
but hey its the internet; someones always gonna disagree
thats a fact lol
but all this i have typed; this is why i think the politicians ignore facts; because they are arrogant and see us 99% poor people as inferior
sub-human species whom the elite were "born to rule" and they see us as totally retarded (Even tho it was the poor people who invented and built
almost every technology in use today)
they think they have a right to lie; cuz plato said they did *and yes plato did say the rulers of the state are the only ones with the right to
thats why they are the way they are; because their $$$ corrupted them with arrogance you and I could never imagine
anyways Vote a Poor man into office!
thats all i gotta say
