Most Conservatives are really not rich themselves, but are just giving automatic knee jerk reactions: reactions they have been programmed with by conservative preachers and politicians, to support the rich under the guise of "capital" and "capitalism". The conservative politicians redirect your tax dollars by the billions to support terrorist regimes in Pakistan (which supports Al Qaeda) and Saudi which was behind the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Centre. Those billions you have paid in should be providing you with health care and a free college education. Americans are woefully under educated and should be working as doctors and physicists instead of having to bring those in from abroad. You pay your taxes then you have to turn around and pay again for doctors and health insurance and exorbitant profits for the pharmaceutical corporations, when you have already paid out billions. Your billions get forked over to Pakistan and Arabs so that the rich capitalists can keep greasing the machinery for themselves to get richer. You only make $50,000 a year yet you get a $100,000 fine for weeds growing around your pool and are getting fined and taxed right out of the middle class. As a conservative, you are donating on average over $100 a month to the Wounded Warriors Project, which is another $1,200 a year minimum you are giving to wounded veterans whom the Socialists would care for better with tax dollars. Then you are probably spending an average of 15 hours a week volunteering at a Christian charity to feed the poor and donating a further 20% of your available remaining income towards Christian charities supporting feeding the poor. Socialism is like a lot of your Christian and patriotic charity work and donations already covered by the Government. Obeying unquestioningly your preachers and conservative politicians in your automatic and thoughtless support of rich Capitalists is not furthering your lot in life at all. To be a poor "capitalist" is irony, the very definition of irony.
