The Gap Widens

Income inequality in the United States (that is, the gap between the richest and the poorest) is rising to levels approaching that of a Third World country. This is NOT good news for the republic. Polarized societies almost always end up collapsing into either anarchy (as the poor are finally pushed too far and revolt) or totalitarianism (as the wealthy demand an iron hand to preserve their privileges). The GOP is now firmly commited to corporate welfare, a class war against the middle class, destroying unions, and relieving the crushing financial burden on Paris Hilton; where do the Democrats stand?
