Wealth gap is widest in most affluent liberal US cities.
Cities that mirror the Dem winning strategy:

Mainly because the way Liberals acquire their wealth is through climbing and scheming and leeching. Predictably, they don’t want to really help people help themselves as a result.
And these Democrats always show in polls that they are the stingiest people. They want government to force the rest of us to help the poor in their cities, while they sob crocodile tears about income inequality.
Jealousy is one of the seven deadly sins, coveting others goods is a violation of the Ten Commandments, and redistribution of wealth is unconstitutional—see the “Takings Clause.”
Inequality is an irrelevant red herring issue. What is needed is to get people who are parked on the sidelines back into the game. Increasing transfer payments does precisely the reverse.
That’s because in the big Progressive cities the elite are allowed to own slaves .... albeit wage slaves, but slaves never the less.
I’m sending this one to Taranto over at the WSJ for a “tautology alert”.
Socialism kills the middle-class.
its the king of places Liberals like to build, big and powerful concentrations of people and power
Take Washington, DC and the surrounding area where all the feral government agents live, for instance.
Selfless public servants, every one.
