Power over Money? Which one has more worth to you?

I think power is worth more because it gets more respect. Anyone can have money, but they could still be a total dweeb. Power on the other hand, power gives people the upper hand. With power, depending on what type, can do things that money cant imagine.
What are your thoughts?

P.s- sorry for my randomness, but hey, thats what this sector of the forums is for eh? Get at me homies!

Respect is something that is earnt by ones actions so either power or money could get one respect.

One could have power and be a complete 'dweeb' (as you put it) also.

Money could allow one to do a lot of good and get one respect also.

One must also take into account that money can buy power

eg - Pharmaceuticals, oil companies, tobacco industries etc...

Though that said, neither is a requirement for one to earn respect..

Well you can't buy weapons of power without the right amounts of money. You could be physically strong with powerful punches or something, but money could still buy your strength for some purpose. Like as a hired mercenary.

There's only one power that could possibly surpass monetary funds. I'm not at liberty to tell you though -you most likely wouldn't believe me.

^ Hey G10, you should probably move this thread to 'Politics' -no?

I think power must prevail. I just think when you have money and people just think of you as someone corrupt, then money would have no sense at all.

Where as if you have power. People do respect you. They treat you nicely and no one accuse you of someone you are not..

Power can make money.. But money itself cannot give you the power you need.

money and power are pursuits of the fool, he who purues such will become penniless and powerless

Money, why wouldn't it be,. Its the one thing that people needs to survive, what in the world will I do with power? my existence in this world is not to be on top of another, to be a ruler, to be a controller, but to be a part of the community. earn money the right way and live life the way you want it, it doesn't have to be sh** loads of money, maybe just enough to get you through each day, enough to have friends who hangs out with you not because of fear of your authority nor the dough you have on you but because of the character that you have, enough money to get through and maybe just enough for a family as well.
