Paul Ryan Wealth Question

Paul Ryan's

recent appointment as vice president candidate with Mitt Romney, some have questions about his wealth portfolio.  Unlike Romney; however, Paul seems to present his information more candidly and less obscure.

Ryan is said to be the 124th wealthiest member of the member of the House of Representatives.  His worth is said to be under $3,000,000 but above $927,000.

While Mitt Romney did disclose his financial assets when running for president in 2007, he did not release his tax returns prior to 2010.  To date Paul Ryan has not been under pressure to do so.

As Ryan and his wife continue to wisely invest in stocks and bonds their empire will grow, but it seems to boil down to the fact that Ryan is not as filthy as Romney; therefore, the magnifying glass is not so tightly honed in on him yet!

Rich Versus Wealthy Mentality

Does rich mean the same thing as wealthy? According to Webster's Dictionary has both meaning similar meanings. I am of the opinion that when it comes to being rich versus wealthy that I'd rather be wealthy! Wealth is: abundance of valuable material possessions or resources. Rich is: having abundant possessions and especially material wealth. Again both definitions are so similar and the reason I'd choose wealth is because of one thing.
American King James Version Deuteronomy 8:18 But you shall remember the LORD your God: for it is he that gives you power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
The nation of Israel was God's chosen people. While silver and Gold are the Lords surely that wealth pertained to more than just having an abundance of money. It included health, possessions, sound mind, peace, posterity, hope, and an eternity with Him. Don't get me wrong, to be rich is a part of wealth, but it's the entire man that draws me to value wealth a whole lot more appealing.
American Standard Version John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that in all things thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Here's an interesting article on rich versus wealthy.

Wealth and Happiness in Indonnesia

There are economic gaps all over the world.  It is said that in Jakarta, Indonesia, like many other metropolitan, has the very obvious poor to the filthy rich.  Let us examine wealth and happiness in Indonesia.

Per the CIA World FactBook Indonesia is 81st out of 144 countries in having an imbalance in income according to the 2010 Gini Index.  Jakarta is home of the most breath-taking skyscrapers, yet it has the low income housing areas as well.

To get the best taste in the correlation between wealth and happiness in Indonesia, let us hear first hand from a citizen.  

While prominence is ever existing, the divide is wedged deep and like many other societies there has got to be a way to lessen the economic and income gap. To learn more about this problem facing Indonesia and wealth and happiness, visit Wealth and Happiness Indonesia.

Mitt Romney Wealth Perspective

My good friend once knew Mitt Romney in a former work arena and while she had positive things to say about him, she also had concerns about him being in touch with the poor and middle class.  We know that Mitt Romney, like most politicians, is wealthy.  Mitt Romney wealth is a concern of many!

I am not mad at Mitt Romney for being wealthy!  Shoot, I would not mind being wealthy.  However, when it comes to healthcare, welfare, education, and many other platforms that all people deal with I hope that if Romney is elected his scope will be a broad prospective.

Furthermore, when it comes to military defense neither Mitt Romney or his sons have the experience.  I'm not saying he would be incompetent as President, but again this is an area of concern.
