    Time to redistribute the wealth . It's only fair.

    Here's the deal, it can all be done with tax law,. It is how all the wealth is going to the top now and it can be changed easily to have it go to the people who actually do the work and to the poor to give them some sort of life for working their asses off. Simple as pie. Since the last 40 years everything has gone to the top with massive increases of wealth going to the already wealthy and not one dime extra and in fact a loss for the American worker. So my proposal to be fair, is to turn it around totally for the next 40 years and all new wealth going to the people who actually work for a living , that include the working poor that get ****. These wealthy pigs don't earn it, deserve it or need it. And all you suckers that's real capitalism.

    even if that were totally fair, there are not anywhere near enough people in actual power positions that would go along with it, making the only way to enact such a thing revolution... and in using revolution to enact it even if it were possible, you very easily could destroy what you seek.

    plus rich people do work, pretty hard in most cases, unless they are just inheritors or trust fund babies.

    Please explain to us how you would take away Jeff Bezos' wealth? Why doesn't he deserve the benefits of what he created.

    You love AOC, don't you?

    Anyway, keep this in mind: The more you try to take away from the wealthy, the more they will do to protect their wealth. Eventually, you won't be able to get your grubby mitts on their wealth...and it won't take 40 years for that to happen.

    How exactly is taking the property from one to give another "fair"? Also, 70% of lottery winners go broke within 5 years. We would eventually be right back to where we are currently in 10 years at the most. I don't see how tanking our entire economy is a good idea.

    The definition of "fair" depends on just how envious a thief really is....
