Yes (if it means serving the greater good)
No (no one has the right to decide how much wealth is too much)
Enough stupid ranting..
What we must do is cut waste and the reason behind it...the quality of our people...
We may be at a point of maxing out where it come to "cutting".
Education is the answer.
Democracy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Of course, that's because:Majority rule is often listed as a characteristic of democracy. However, it is also possible for a minority to be oppressed by a "tyranny of the majority" in the absence of governmental or constitutional protections of individual or group rights.
There's that pesky freedom term again. How about we define freedom as NOT freedom, as liberals often do, then we can ignore that right?equality and freedom have both been identified as important characteristics of democracy since ancient times.
You do realize that ethics and morality are not tested in ideal circumstances, they are tested in the extreme situation. You are not a free nation if you only observe freedom when you feel like it, only for people you personally think are OK. Sure, the poor fisherman should be free, poor guy right? What about the billionaire fat cat.....? When you accept that you must treat them with the same fairness, you might grow a little inside. This is no different than the teachings of Love Your Enemy, or simply recognizing that individual freedom is a fundamental building block of...you know, good. That you fail that test is not a surprise, most do. Anyone can learn however.
Organize a charity around volunterrism, ala imageps suggestion, if you really desire it. Stop abusing government and freedoms to further your own personal agenda to take from others.
If you continue to misrepresent such positions, despite being clearly rebutted on that specific issue multiple times, that gets really annoying, and off-topic.
Market economy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
So, using your ENORMOUS man-sized brain, try to focus on what makes sense in the debate (i.e. that the U.S. is based on market principles), and not the tired absurd philisophical debate about "no pure <market, socialist, communist> <economy, government>" actually EXISTS!! Dur!For example, the United States constitutes a mixed economy (substantial market regulation, agricultural subsidies, extensive government-funded research and development, Medicare/Medicaid), yet at the same time it is foundationally rooted in a market economy.
I even included "market BASED", to try to hold your hand on that precise point, you but you still managed to get lost. Please jettison the semantic antics, and rejoin a mature disuscssion.
