"To take from one because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the FIRST PRINCIPLE of ASSOCIATION -- the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it." - Thomas Jefferson
Here is an article on President Obama’s silver spoon pronouncements, and Governor Romney’s response: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/04/romney-rejects-obamas-silver-spoon-comment/
Logically and thus, morally, one cannot be faulted for something outside of one’s choice, like the color of one’s skin or the wealth of one’s parents. Yet, President Obama touts a precept as despicable as original sin and racism: that the earned wealth of a parent dirties the soul of offsprings.
Vilifying Governor Romney for the wealth of his rags-to-riches Father is akin
To hating one because of the circumstances of birth like the color of one’s skin.
