Default Question- What are the 3 most important issues for Democrats?

If you consider yourself a Democrat/leftist etc, what are the 3 most important issues for you? And what policies do you support in pursuance of those issues?

They apparently love paying taxes to the government, that was what the whole Occupy movement seemed to be about and people were quitting their jobs and sleeping in tents and shitting on the street they were so passionate about the cause.

Rid the world of rich people unless they're like Steve Jobs. It's okay he got rich. But all the other rich people have to go. Except Obama. And Clinton. They can keep their money but really, every other rich person has to give it up because they are the embodiment of evil.

Except the Kennedys. And maybe Brad Pitt.

1. Balance the budget.
2. Increase regulation of the financial industry.
3. Healthcare and other basic social issues.

Those are this democrat's most important issues.

What is your concern about those issues? Presumbly you simply just want more money spent on them. Who's money? Not yours. Someone who has a lot.

What if politicians decide that you have to send a significant sum of your income to Africa because comparatively, you are part of the global "1%" by virtue of simply livin in America?

How much of your money are YOU willin to have wrenched from your pocket involuntarily to support things you dont have a say in?

Im just curious what your principle is on this. Do you think its fair to treat other people and their money differently than youd expect for yourself, just because they make more? What about all the people you make more than? Do they deserve your money?

What is your specific principle here, mate? Do you have an actual philosophy or is it more sort of an amorphic, capricious, arbitrary idea that "whoever i subjectivey decide is rich has different rights and responsibilites than everyone else?

Also do you think simply giving money away encourages hard work and good habits? Do you think Eddy Curry worked his tail off after he got a gauranteed 50 million dollar deal? Theres a lotta eddy currys out there, mate.

But anyhow mate if you could just sort of expand on your general economc principle/theory Id indeed appreciate it.

Cheers
