Most liberals do not rage against wealthy people in fact many liberals are in fact wealthy , corporations do in fact employ people and create goods but only with help from government ( roads, infrastructure, law enforcement , fire departments , loans for R&D , to name a few ) . They do think corporations should pay more taxes ( some pay none ) Caring for the poor and the weakest among us is certainly a trait of liberals, but to think it's in exchange for their vote is absurd. The reason the middle class shrunk was due to a recession caused by a republican president ( which. always seems to happen during republican administrations.) The less well to do do depend more on liberals for help because without them there would be no help. Liberals could solve most of the problems in society if conservatives would get the hell out of the way . By the way trumpism is not a conservative ideal but a cult of personality which inspires those that. don't see the idea of being the melting pot of the world as a great advantage to us all. Amen.
