I've never liked politicians that demonize groups of people. [View all]

This is what Trump has done with immigrants, calling Mexicans (who only come here to find work) drug dealers and racists. In fact the entire right wing has been doing this for decades, remember Reagan and "welfare queens". Whether it is immigrants, people of color, the LGBTQ community, Muslims; the right will demonize an entire group of people. That is wrong.

Unfortunately, there are now some on the left who have adopted this despicable tactic and continually demonize a particular group of people, millionaires and billionaires. Just like any other group there are good people and bad people among them. Not all are bad. Not all are good. The bad ones deserve everything said against them. But the good do not. There are many good people that have achieved wealth honestly through hard work, creativity and innovation. They do not deserve to be demonized. Painting a group of people with one broad brush is wrong whether the right is doing it or the left and it should stop.

If I were to vote in a presidential
