    “I’d say they must be damn smart and hard working to accumulate that much wealth!”Yeah, I wish I were smart enough to have been born into wealth like the majority of the so called 1%.

    “Social Security is a pathetic joke. You could make more on your money with good investing.” True and you could also lose a lot but Social Security is a lot more than just a savings account.

    I’m fairly confident Rad-ish was using sarcasm.

    The American Dream has become a Plutocratic Nightmare! I thought we got rid of Royalty with the revolution but it’s back.

    All right smarty pants tell us how someone is going to learn a skill when Republicans cut education funds and make learning that skill more expensive. And how is someone supposed to find a job when Republican s keep outsourcing them to third world countries. Reality sucks doesn’t it?

    John Locke (from his Treatises of Government, 1690):

    “Though I have said above ‘That all men by nature are equal,’ I cannot be supposed to understand all sorts of equality.”

    He then enumerates as sources of legitimate inequality “age and virtue,” “excellency of parts/and merit,” birth, benefits received, etc. Equality is confined to the “natural freedom” of not being subjected to authority without consent. Governmental authority, however, has the one and only end of the “preservation of property.”

    This idea of “equal opportunity,” not “equality in every aspect of life,” is what the Founders had in mind when they conceived and wrote the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. We are all equally born with a God-given right to government by consent, says John Locke. It is up to us to make use of that right to achieve our goals without infringing on the rights of others.
