I nominate myself for this year's Nobel Prize for Economics.

All proceeds will be donated to my new charity Give To The Rich. Give generously today so that they can create jobs and live in the opulence necessary for all to benefit. Please, stop wasting your hard earned dollars on those pathetic bleeding heart appeals on behalf of the poor, the sick, and the suffering. We all realize that the only way the poor can really benefit is if you help our struggling Job Creators to revitalize our economy.

(OMG, I'm thinking people might actually believe this charity would work. After all, how many zillions are donated to private colleges for elitists?)

I'm looking for a few talented videographers to help develop an ad featuring suitable elites, sort of like the Just a Dollar a Day ads for starving children.

My program will also require translators to make our appeal in poverty stricken African and Asian countries where people undoubtedly understand how vital it is to contribute to our struggling American billionaires.

Certainly! Instead of lending us their excess money at interest to make more when we borrow to get the necessities of life, they'll surely start using it to hire us to make products no one has money to buy. We just need good advertising to make it work.

I have a better idea, lets live on credit forever! Oh, wait. Didn't we just try that?

Rich people don't lend money dude, no idea where you got such a childish notion. Banks lend money, without the help of wealthy individuals.

Wealthy people may invest but that money goes to the company being invested in and does not go to Job Creation. Higher profits from sales go to Job Creating. Investment goes to expansion which is helpful If Demand Justifies It. Otherwise it becomes a loss to the investor, which happens in investment all the damn time.

Look, be realistic. People are just not going to donate to banks. Banks just don't radiate warm fuzzy feelings. This campaign must be built around the human image of the JOB CREATOR. When donors look into the eyes of a billionaire, they'll feel that special connection that links all humanity no matter how different our circumstances.

And we can also use unlimited resources raised from the charity to finance candidates that can help support our agenda too!

I'm sick and tired of the insults liberals hurl at our JOB CREATORS. Listen to a typical libtard and you'd think that workers were the ones who worked and that the JOB CREATORS were just rich consumers. Basic economics teaches it's the other way round. Workers are consumers and rich consumers are JOB CREATORS.

RIGHT ON! We don't work for them. they do all their own work and deserve all they have. It's not anything the community's done. The rich are just hard working individuals and no one works for them to add to what they actually do themselves. They don't need us. They'll all be moving to Galtonia soon. No imports there. No reliance on anyone but themselves. They'll thrive in isolation from the Human Race. All the parasites will be segregated. Ayn Rand will rise from the dead and cheer the Galt island totally independent economy.

Is this the same country that put a man on the moon? The beacon of hope for the world's despairing? Let's work together to show that we can create a class never before seen on this great earth: TRILLIONAIRES!

Move over, God.
