Without dismissing what you said, evidence and economic research matter too. Are you deeply acquainted with the evidence and research I briefly mentioned? Just like blind leftists there are also many conservatives who are operating based on ideology and a insufficiently informed belief system.

Again, lots of economic evidence suggests we don’t live in a meritocracy nor that we have substantial economic mobility relative to what is claimed.

Government can be problematic, but often the evil government you think is entirely to blame is bought by more powerful entities, the so called military industrial complex. This includes many of the rich, major corporations, media empires, etc.

Sure, but the obvious question is always how do you know you aren’t in that group?

Literally anyone can reference that and drop it in a convo as if it proves them right. I’ve seen liberals post such things regarding conservatives.

I’m going to say it again, stop circle jerking folks and congratulating each other on questionable posts. It’s no better than twitter reddit, and other majority liberal social media.

Are you also familiar with Eisenhower's warning against the marriage of science and government? What do you think academia has become these days?

But out of curiosity, what do you think the answer is? I'd prefer stripping it back to base zero. COTUS as is and little else and working our way forward from there. Strip it down rather than heap more on top of the mess we already have, but then, I'm a fan of KISS. You have a much harder time gaming a straightforward system then one that's as convoluted as what we've arrived at.

Until each and every one here on ATS can save 50 cents of each dollar you make,you have no right to bitch, that is to the left, right, and center.

"That is not realistic"
It's more realistic than debt or the new green dream, it's knowing the difference between want and need.

I want a new toy but i need food.


It really is that simple, and all of you know I am right.

Nothing you can say will prove it wrong.

I don’t understand it. People keep posting garbage like above. And I clearly point out that statistically as time goes on we are getting a smaller and smaller share of the profit while being more and more productive and everyone just ignores it. No one addresses it. Do you not understand what I’m saying? Or is it just irrelevant to you all that a pattern is here whereby we are expected, over time, to be more productive and yet the corporations have the right to just keep taking a larger share of the money our work earns. This is ok with y’all? How is this not considered a handout to them, but us getting services in exchange for the taxes we pay is a handout to us?? Please, someone explain.

Billionaire children born to billionaire parents 'earned' their fortunes and don't deserve to be taxed more just because we have an underpaid working class in America. That is the argument presented by modern conservatives; economic inequality is OK because the wealthy deserve the product of society's labor more than the laborers' deserve compensation.

“If you’re born wealthy you should have that wealth stripped from your hands and given to other people”

Got it.

It’s good that you have such a clear view of who it’s ok to strip money from and who it’s not ok to strip money from. Taxing inheritances upon children who haven’t earned the money is apparently bad. Continuing to take a larger and larger chunk of the profit from the workers who create it is apparently ok. Wonder who fostered that ideology.

The inheritance they received WAS taxed, heavily, before the earners even received it. But hey, who cares? Rich people are just bigots anyway so let’s tax it again before the kids get it .
Can’t have people starting out life wealthy.

Just make sure you don’t leave anything for your kids and grandkids.
Some libtarded government might tax it all off them.

Who am I kidding, the left won’t be in government for a LOOOONG time.

So it absolutely doesn’t matter to you that productivity has almost doubled in the last 40 years, that workers make far more profit than 1970, and that all that increase in work we do and profit we make, our share of the profits, the percentage given to us as wages, has continually gone down? That makes no difference to you? Doesn’t affect you at all? Or that banks make up imaginary money, give you this imaginary money, and in return you pay them often almost twice the actual value of your house over time. From money that you actually earn. These are ok forms of free handouts? But taxing a portion of money inherited, only over 10 million dollars, is bad? Just trying to understand your logic here. So, you, your kids, all your descendants will continue to get less and less of the money you actually create in profit, and you’re completely fine with that. And someone with $50 million, who got that money exclusively by siphoning off the profit of workers who worked for them, they die, and their child only gets 22 million, and that’s what you’re upset about. Hm.

Yeah.
I inherited. Bigly. I was not taxed for it. The tax had already been paid.
My grandkids will inherit off me. Also bigly.
And no lib government will be taxing them when I die.

No, I think I get it now. You’re ok with the fact that 30% of Americans make under $12 an hour. That 60% of Americans make under $16 an hour. That the vast majority of Americans are doomed to work harder and make less money as the parasite owners, ceos and shareholders demand they work harder and hand over all the increased profit. As society will continue to fragment and more mass shootings and crime will expand, encompassing your grandchildren. I think there’s a word for that.

People who take money they haven’t worked for are bad. People who live off others labor are bad. People who exploit others to take money they create while not adding productivity themselves? Yes, bad. But I suppose it’s much to expect work ethic and responsibility from a trust baby.

Ha ha haaa.
“Owners, CEO’s and shareholders exploit others to make money” ok. Maybe you should quit work so they can’t exploit you.

Maybe if your ancestors had made something of themselves and you benefited from their hard work, you’d think differently.

My descendants are going to be just fine. They’ll make great ‘exploiters’ I hope.

Well when NBC rips on AOC, you know it is has gotten bad for the left.
They are now saying Trump can use this for the 2020 election, which he will.

"DNC wants socialism and don't care about jobs" quotes AOC.....what a rookie move by a political noob
