Our leaders are disgusting and as gluttonous as we imagine. They are bought and paid for by corporations. That is a fact. We can see it in everything
that is today's America.
MCain is a sell out of his own moral character in order to try and get elected. He is no longer a Maverick he is a bought and paid for. He has sold
his soul in order to attract the votes of the far right, whom think they are Christian. Christ hated wealth and said so with nearly ever action and
word he spoke. You are not christian if you stand by and watch people suffer for food and health care while you pad your bank accounts with illicit
stock market funds that basically robed the working class of their wadges.
4 years f MCain = 4 years of griddlock in government at a time were America could fall if our government does not act and trust me...they will only
act in their own interest just like those on wall street do.
Trickle down is failed. Because you can never trust people to not be greedy and gluttonous. Bill Gates and others like him are the example of
disgusting greed. No man deserves or has worked hard enough to have so much more than everyone else. I am mainly talking about people going bankrupt
for health care or losing homes because they make a few hundred to little to maintain thier homes.
No one can be trusted to have so much money and power. They simply want more.
I used to be republican because I believed in Ronald Regans trickle down but it has proven to lead to failure. On paper it could work but human beings
are greedy and NEVER can be trusted to do the right thing.
Bill Gates did something awesome and he worked hard and sure he has earned the right to live a little better than others who also work hard but not 40
Billlion better. No one on earth could ever work hard enough to be so gluttonous as people like him.
Some of you will think this is nuts but the fact is there are more middle class than there are extremely wealthy people. Your worst nightmare would be
for things to continue the way they are because the massive millions would eventually revolt and likely take back what has been stolen from their hard
labours hours of work making products or services while the rich buy stock and watch your 401k's increase its value. Then my friends they sell and
YOU are left with the losses while they walk away with your cash. The stock market is a lot like a casino.
Capitalism was ment to provide capital for companies to develop and grow in order to make more profits. What we ended up with was companies barowing
tons of cash to develop and grow instead of properly using the money garnered by stock. When they screw up and lose money while owing banks guess
what...we all pay. All the while the over inflated stocks plummet (because the wealth bail out first) leaving the poor with dead 401k's.
You have been had. Did Bush mean for this to happen ? Probably not. He probably thought the trickle down could work but he as well as myself and
others forgot that people are innately greedy and wealth is the root of all evil. The more you get, the more you want. I was there I know. I retired
at 40 because I had enough to live comfortably (not wealthy). I paid off my house and have enough income to live decently though I could make more if
I wanted to stress myself more and likely shorten my life. You start to dismiss the poor and needy as not your problem. Well there just is not enough
good paying jobs for everyone to have good health care and buy a home.
We as a nation need to reward work and not wealth. Companies with debt and lots of cash in stocks should be forced to pay the debt before rolling
dividends. Shareholders should not make more money than workers. Bah, I will stop why I got so mad at my old party. It is not all their fault because
the theory could work if humans had no control of it and were not allowed to become greedy and gluttonous.
Companies cannot sell things if the greater number of people cannot afford to buy things. There just are not enough extremely wealthy to buy enough
products to keep companies in business.
Imagine if you took all the money except one billion from each billionaire in the world and let the massive middle class spend it. There would be
higher demand for products and then companies could make money and hire workers.
Right now in Florida the worker making close to or more than minimum wadge cannot afford to pay rent. Most are having to share homes. How can you
raise a healthy family in that atmosphere?
What has Bill Gates done to deserve multiple multi million dollar spacious homes while many AMERICANS have to share homes, go bankrupt for health
care? No man on earth could ever do anything that makes them that much more valuable to the universe as this.
I am not saying really hard working people and great ideas and hard won research and development, inventions etc.. should not garner those people a
greater reward but how much greater? The extremely excess money they have is not even being spent to buy things that would create jobs.
There is a point where you can have to much success. Until everyone has food, health care, a home, and a way to get to work everyday then no one
deserves to own two homes or drive Ferrari's. If we ever get to the point where we all live decent then its ok for those who truly do amazing things
to be rewarded so greatly.
We should not have no poor in America there is not justification for it. There should be no one who cannot get medicine and health care when they need
Bill Gates should have paid his Janitor more or hired more people.
You give these kids a clean home, a college education, health care and dinner ever night and they wont be a drag on the economy and law enforcement
like many of them become today. Pay their fathers enough for the hard work they do and their mothers can stay home and raise them right.
