And if this person suggested you a nice new fence be built between your property along with a new sidewalk and if he asked you to pay for it all because it will be a benefit to you would you look favorably on that person?

People do not as a rule hate rich people because they are rich, they hate them because of the actions they take when they are rich. Actions that are 100% fundamentally in opposition to the principles they usually extoll.
