When there is not a fairness in the system and a huge disparity between rich and poor, you get revolution. The corporate-controlled media in the US and UK has held off the revolt for 10 years or so, but the rage shows up eventually.
In the US, our media and the GOP try to say that the misery of the working poor is caused by the weakest among us. They use race and religion to divide us. EVENTUALLY it will be impossible to hide anymore.
This is what happened in Tunisia, Egypt and now happening in Syria and so on. It will happen in Ireland and the UK, to a lesser degree.
Redmond, I'll bet that you are not just a right-wing, greedy Republican--but also a gun owner and self-proclaimed moralist and "family values" christian. Well, it may not happen today, but perhaps in your lifetime you may very well need your god and your gun. Because either the poor will revolt while you are on this Earth (collecting SS and Medicare, mind you), or when you die and meet your god, you will account for your greed and selfishness toward your fellow man.
