More Evidence Democrats Party of the Wealthy

For many years, most Americans were told and believed that the Democratic Party was the party of the common working person and the Republican Party was the party of the rich and well-to-do. Perhaps at one time, that may have been a reality, but it sure isn’t anymore, only most Americans fail to see the change.

I still hear people; especially liberal Democrats, repeat the difference between the two main political parties as being that of money.

Over the past decade, we have seen many Democrats protest in the streets and in the media against the wealthiest 1%. They portray them as all wealthy Republicans that control major corporations and banks. Yet, when I look at the list of the ten wealthiest people in the United States, I see mostly Democrats. According to Money.com, here at the top ten wealthiest Americans:

  1. Jeff Bezos – net worth $109.9 billion – Democrat
  2. Bill Gates – net worth $93.3 billion – Democrat
  3. Warren Buffett – net worth $87.2 billion Democrat
  4. Mark Zuckerberg – net worth $77.5 billion – Democrat
  5. Larry Page – net worth $54.9 billion – Democrat
  6. Larry Ellison – net worth $54.7 billion – Republican & Democrat supporter
  7. Sergey Brin – net worth $53.3 billion – Democrat
  8. Charles Koch – net worth $48.6 billion – Republican
  9. David Koch – net worth $48.6 billion – Republican
  10. Rob Walton – net worth $47.9 billion – Democrat

As you can see, the bulk of the nation’s wealthiest people are Democrats supporting the campaigns of Democrats.

15 – Marin County, CA – 78.8% Clinton; 15.9% Trump – 86,650 – 17,531

16 – Williamson County, TN – 65.1% Trump – 29.6% Clinton – 68,160 – 30,992

17 – Montgomery County, MD – 75.9% Clinton, 20.3% Trump – 309,761 – 82,985

18 – Stafford County, VA  – 51.8% Trump; 42.7% Clinton – 33,840 – 27,879

19 – Prince William County, VA – 57.4% Clinton; 37.3% Trump – 83,093 – 54,065

20 – Calvert County, MD – 56.8% Trump; 38.4% Clinton – 24,680 – 16,669

That means that 14 of the 20 wealthiest counties in America voted for Hillary Clinton with top 5 counties all going for Clinton.

The vote totals for these top 20 wealthiest counties comes to 2,518,237 votes for Hillary Clinton to 1,377,456 votes for Donald Trump. Hillary won these 20 counties with 1,140,781 more votes than Trump.

Now consider the final popular vote total was 62,523,126 for Hillary and 61,201,931 for Trump, a difference of 1,321,195 votes. If you subtract these 20 counties, the difference between Clinton and Trump is only 180,414 votes.

So, who really is the party of the wealthy? Obviously, it’s the Democratic Party, not the Republican Party. This means that when Democrats attack the wealthy, they want you to believe they are attacking Republicans, when in fact they are attacking themselves.

Now that you know which party is really the part of the wealthy, consider their hypocrisy when it comes to their socialist view of redistributing the wealth. They advocate it, but don’t seem to be living it themselves. Judging by their actions, what they really mean is to redistribute your wealth to the poor but not their wealth, a common hypocrisy of the socialist elite.
