    Distributions of wealth in this country

    You can't give all the new wealth of a country to just a few golden few. Capitalism dies when the incentive of the possibility to get ahead is taken away. Which it has been the case since 1981. I would like the greatest most powerful richest country in the world, to stay capitalistic and a Republic. Not caring about the fact that the golden few get it all and in no way deserve it all is selling out my country.

    I am all for more people getting more wealth, I really am. I do think the rich have too much money. However I do not support taking money from one person to give it to another. If you want to see wealth distributed more evenly then stop giving money to the uber wealthy. The poor and middle class of this country line up in droves to give money freely to those at the top.

    Hmm... if capitalism died in 1981 then how are we (still?) the greatest, most powerful, richest country in the world?

    I'm for every company and every owner earning everything they deserve but all the new wealth of this country is in no way reasonable and in fact is not in the best interest of this country. They are getting it all because of tax laws and tax rates, we have 100% control of that. Who do you think in this country made those tax laws and rates as they are.

    They benefit from them - however - the majority of their money comes from transactions. Take the Walton family. Walmart brings in billions of dollars a year. People literally line up to hand them money and then complain that they have too much money. It is incredible. Some things are unavoidable like utilities but almost everything else you have a choice. The choices consumers make determine where that money goes. Consumers, more than any other factor, choose to increase the wealth gap.

    You did:

    Capitalism dies when the incentive of the possibility to get ahead is taken away. Which it has been the case since 1981.

    Congress critters did that (bolded above). The sad part is that you, I or any other voter has the chance to vote for (or against) at most 3 of those 535 congress critters in any given election cycle. They now enjoy a re-election rate of over 90%, and are awash in campaign cash, so don't expect any changes in the near future.

    I'm one of them complaining about any of this wealth accumulation that is totally made up by tax law and tax rate. They don't earn it , work harder for it or deserve it. Not in a Capitalistic country that wants to continue to exist. No one deserve all the new wealth of any country as has been the case in this country since 1981. You sitting on the sidelines while we lose this countries middle class and increase of the poor because all the new wealth going to the top is against the best interest of your country. Do you get this, no one deserves it all.

    Just watch, historically there is only one party that will change this in the right direction. Like I said just watch, this hate group they call a party is doomed and that's the best thing that can happen for this country.
