Sorry, this is pure nonsense.
For a start, why dont you US Americans look at other countries, like certain Northern European countries., W. Germany etc..etc..
Our social system is better, and we are still a free, western society without any "wealth caps" or other nonsense.
But: It wont work as long as you (and this means "YOU" as in "many average Americans") *think* that countries like W.Germany, Sweden etc. are "socialist" or "communist" (which of course is an absurd statement, but i hear it quite often).
YOUR problems are at the core of society: It's the lower income class, the lack of a good social net, health insurance, driving lower class/middle-class into debt and bankruptcy..while THE BANKS profit from it.
As long as you don't get a better social net and support for unemployed etc...people..your system WONT WORK respective will stay as screwed as it is right now.
Go look at Sweden, Finland, Norway etc. and ask yourself WHY the system works there. How it's possible that people are rich, work FAR FAR LESS, earn more, have free healthcare and and overall higher standard of living. Hint: IT WORKS AMAZINGLY WELL.edit on 6-10-2011 by flexy123 because: (no reason given)
I disagree with one thing. Northern European countries have high taxes...which is a form of wealth cap or wealth resistance.
The rest I agree with.
