No matter how smart we are or how hard we work, we can't all choose to have 1000, 100 or even 10 other people work for us and we take the profit, while paying them so little they must go in debt to us to live. It's mathematically impossible. I'm an American, so I can't question the morality of an economy that serves less than 1% of the population and allows only 10% or less to live and/or die debt free.

Wannabe winners think taxes and welfare are responsible for their failure to rise above the norm. About ten percent of taxes go to welfare*. More than 50% goes to the military [industrial complex]. It's a testament to conservative propaganda that otherwise intelligent people can believe the poor and not billionaire Wall St Oligarchs, who own the MIC and most of everything else, are sucking up all the money!

*Social Security and Medicare are not welfare. They are a prepaid insurance benefit funded by the payroll tax on the poor and middle class, The cons in CONgress have borrowed and spent the SS Trust Fund to fatten their rich owner operators. And themselves if they're also billionaires or family members.
