This is just stupid. Plain and simple. You know how so many people, especially Republicans, lol, say that all you have to do to achieve the American
Dream is work hard, yada, yada? Well I can GUARANTEE you that there are people out there who work 10X HARDER than people who are millionaires
or billionaires. And THAT is one of the huge problems with capitalism. It is a blatantly UNFAIR system.
People always complain that Democrats want to hand things out to people, which is simply a horrible argument to make in the first place, when there
are so many of them working just as hard or harder than those telling them they should work harder if they want to achieve what "we" have. It's
nothing but a joke. How does person A work harder than person B, when A does more and works harder, both mentally and physically, yet is poor and
suffering, while B sits around doing nothing all day because B inherited all of his money and never had to work a day in his life?
This is one of my problems with politicians. Especially Republican politicians. They want to control policy regarding working class people, and in
general people who may have worked much harder than themselves, but they have had everything handed to them their whole lives. The only people who are
rich who actually deserve to be are those who not only worked very hard, but who did so honestly. By honestly I mean without taking advantage of other
Say I started a business selling a product I made from home. It became successful and I had to increase production. I could do so honestly or
dishonestly. Those who choose the latter will make more money, and that is the essence of corrupt business practices. It doesn't matter if they can
legally get away with it, because that doesn't make it right or okay. This is why capitalism should be done away with. By its very nature it's an
unjust system, and the majority of people, no matter WHAT they do, they cannot better their situation by much unless they get extremely lucky, no
matter how much work they put in.
People who are born with money are the main ones who are going to be billionaires when they grow up. Their education is paid for, but mainly they have
the money available to them to start whatever kind of business they want. It is MUCH EASIER to make money if you already have money, and that is a
cold hard fact. Starting with nothing and becoming a millionaire can be done, but the odds are stacked against anyone who tries nowadays so severely
that they are likely to do nothing but bury themselves by owing money that never existed in the first place to various financial institutions.
The people who control this country's money are those who control this country, and they will continue to screw us, the people, as long as we have a
