Imagine if America was a dictatorship. You could let 1 percent of the people have all the nation’s wealth. You could help your rich friends get richer by cutting their taxes and bailing them out when they gamble and lose. You could ignore the needs of the poor for health care and education. Your media would appear free, but would secretly be controlled by one person and his family. You could wiretap phones. You could torture foreign prisoners. You could have rigged elections. You could lie about why you go to war. You could fill your prisons with one particular racial group and no one would complain. You could use the media to scare the people into supporting policies that are against their interests.

Best Answer

Well, to the mass of Americans, I am. However UNLIKE the super wealthy (1%) I chose the wrong parents.

Best Answer

Its goid to have a hsndy excuse but do you imagine any significant portion of the 1% at the top simply inherited their wealth? Really? Demographics say otherwise.

Best Answer

You are truly uninformed. The scions of wealth, when not living from a trust, are afforded the lack of failure, or if they fail at all, it is failing upward. Do you think that it is work to go to the FED window, borrow billions at a fractional %, then make a profit by buying treasuries from our government that yield 10x their exposure? And, demographic data shows that America has the lowest class mobility of any industrial nation, and that the only predictor of economic success is the wealth of one's parents. Get a real education in economics, polisci, and sociology before you start spouting empty assertions. It's embarrasing listening to you. Bye.
