    See why wealth redistribution won't work?

    Labor can't own all the capital, because by default, they're no longer labor.

    I'm sorry, but are you blaming the 2008 financial meltdown on the Democrats taking over Congress??

    Many of the problems were a mess in the making, long before the Democrats took Congress.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    The exploding deficits clearly are.

    The meltdown was caused by government interference in the housing market.

    The economy sure has been booming since the Democrats took over.

    no it shouldn't own all the capital and neither should the upperclass which is what is happening! Almost reminds me of the end of animal farm with all the animals looking in while the pigs piss away all the money
