Wealth inequality is not a problem. Steve Jobs had all the wealth in the world. He is dead at a young age from cancer. His quality of life was no better than mine. Car. Check. Running clean water. Check. Electricity. Check. Access to healthcare, Check.
What did his billions do for him in the end. It didn't do anything because if I get his level of cancer I also die. Dude didn't even have a college degree which I do have.
Well, if money is not important then why do people complain so much about tax so much. I don't think talking about Steve Jobs cancer is genuinely considering the problem.

The Libertarian Party's slogan is Minimum Government Maximum Freedom.
No one thinks that government can go away completely.
Ours can be shrunk considerably. We might start by eliminating everything that isn't provided for in the Constitution.

You remind me of someone who made a post on one of the other blogs I frequent ranting about how people on wall street don't really work, they just shift around large sums of money while sitting on their butts all day, ranting on and on about it as though anyone could do it.
You know, if it's so easy, then we'd all be doing the same and making piles of money. All it takes is the intestinal fortitude to save a hundred or two off of our regular pay to stake ourselves into day trading and we're on our way to "shifting around large piles of money" and becoming our own self-made billionaires.
Likewise, as much of his money as he throws around on business ventures, either Trump's daddy was a genius to have created a never-ending fountain of cash for him to crap away, being the moron that you think he is, or what he does is so easy that none of the rest of us have any excuse not to be figuring out how to be millionaire real estate moguls ourselves.
You can't have it both ways.
