It has become crystal clear that we have a number of fiscal conservatives masquerading as disgruntled liberals here on OWS. Their diversionary tactics have become all too obvious.
Tell you what. It's multiple choice time.
I think we can all agree that regardless of how many voters turn out, America WILL ELECT a new President in 2016. So there is no need to debate if or not a single one of us should bother to cast a vote. Instead, I challenge all of you to set your detailed views, attacks, philosophies, ect aside just long enough to post a straight answer to a straight question.
Without further adieu.
If it comes down to Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney in 2016, under which President would privately held US wealth concentrate faster?
A. Hillary Clinton would ultimately concentrate more privately held US wealth.
B. Mitt Romney would ultimately concentrate more privately held US wealth.
With TRILLIONS in play, there is virtually no chance that our privately held US wealth would concentrate at the same exact rate under either President. It is also utterly absurd to consider even the most remote possibility that Clinton and Romney would ultimately enact and effect identical budgets and policies. So there is no need to skirt the issue or post any long winded entries here.
The answer is A or B.
Of course, I am faced with a dilemma. If I post my own answer as a comment, it will be marked down almost immediately. If I don't answer at all, I will be accused of skirting the issue myself.
Either way, I will be attacked.
I say the privately held wealth of America would continue to concentrate regardless but Mitt Romney (B), would ultimately concentrate MORE privately held US wealth. Of course, this is only my opinion as a die-hard free thinker.
My answer is B. Mitt Romney would ultimately concentrate more privately held US wealth.
See that? It really is possible to give a straight answer.
A or B.
