Why Is Being Successful A Crime?
Why do people seem to hate 'rich people', especially politicians? I'm far from rich myself before anyone asks but the fact that I'm not rolling in money has never made me want to hate those who are.

I've posted this in the politics section as I frequently see it directed at politicians. I'm not even American and I've heard/seen plenty online of people making comments about Mitt Romney for daring to be well off. Not people commenting about why he may be well off, or bad things he's done as a consequence of being well off. Simply people hating him for having money. I'm not a Romney fan by the way, I just think there are better reasons to hate him.

We get the same over in the UK as well. I can't keep count of the amount of derogatory comments my family make about David Cameron for daring to be well off.

It seems weird to me that most of humanity wishes they were better off yet they seem to hate anyone who has money. I'm assuming these people wouldn't automatically hate themselves if they became rich so why hate others?

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.
