It's not some evil conspiracy. It's just companies studying human psychology and manipulating that for money. It sounds completely wrong, maybe it is, but it's how they make money. You receive a product, you're happy. I am totally aware that they do this, but I still keep buying shit.

There were two court cases that really opened Pandora's box in the 70s, and they're listed above. They said that
1) money in politics (political campaigns and PACs and interest groups and whatnot) is a 1st Amendment right as "Free Speech"
2) Corporations are people and have 1st Amendment rights
+3) in 2010 the campaign contribution limits were removed entirely
So you put it together and you get corporations and rich people coming into political campaigns and drowning out the candidates that disagree with them out of the media with their money for access to public advertisements. The rich can't win it all straight away of course, and they'll definitely have disagreements, but it starts a correlation, and it starts a poison to American politics.
The rich become what politicians bend over for in desperation to get funds and win.
And would you lookie there. Sources like this, and from a few other extremely disappointing sources of instances, it really pisses the American people off and confirms a lot of beliefs.
The best solution so far is Wolf-Pac, which gathers people, American citizens themselves, to organize and contact state legislatures and convince the state to hold a hearing for the Wolf-Pac resolution to get big money out of politics and go back to pre-1970 public funding, not corporate/fatcat dominated funding.
Wolf-Pac already has California, Vermont, and New Jersey.
Once there's 2/3 of the nation's states that have passed the resolution, they can call for a Constitutional Convention and work to pass a revised version as an Amendment, so the Constitution itself will inhibit a Crony Corporatist America.

there is a certain cost to economic equality, yeah maybe everyone will be a little more equal but its like if you made 40 grand a year and i made 100 grand a year. you would think a fair comprimise would us both make 60 grand a year, but after the money goes threw so many inefficient corrupt politicians, we both make 35 grand a year. even if that never happened and everyone made as much as the chart you think. do you think we would be better off? should someone like bill gates only make twice the amount as a lawyer, even though bill gates influences are so much greater than a lawyers? even then so, even if you think he shouldn't, the vast majority of income from the one percent comes from investments, its not like their day job just pays them millions a year. and such investments are made on someones own decision. should someone who blows all their money, living paycheck to paycheck, face the same kind of economic stability as someone who chooses to live on less for a while to invest in something?

Nobody is asking for socialism. They're asking that the government not pander to the interests of massive donors through post-70s legalized bribery.
On another note, overall your comment isn't making much sense.
-How exactly does money earned "go through inefficient corrupt politicians" like magic and money disappears?
-Why are incomes suddenly magically decided by some arbitrary factor?
-Are you sure you understand how the investors are playing the market?

Tax rates back then had lots of loopholes. There's no damn way someone that rich is going to invest his money just for 70% of it to be stolen by government thugs. He's better off just saving and storing it off shore.

What is odd about our graduated tax rate is that at a level rate between 22 and 24% would be revenue neutral. The figures are the top 10% earners (thats roughly $100,000 per year or more) pay 64% of the federal revenue. Obama can blow it out his ass claiming "wealthy needs to pay their fair share". Just say, I'm raising taxes. deal with it. By my math I pay several peoples "fair share" not just my own. An increase in taxes has always precipitated economic decline. The government needs to manage its money, not penalize the people who pay them.

This is saying just one part how much more special treatment the rich are getting these days and how much bullshit has been propagated to the public because of the publicly, openly rich establishing themselves above everyone politically.
Their tax rates used to be over twice as much as today, and not nearly as many loopholes and deductions, and they rarely complained, and even if they did it wasn't public. The rich used to stay in their own social circles and things were fine, and the economy was so much better, only matched under Clinton and even that was a lucky deal.
