So, somehow I ended up today at this:
Lets do what you’re doing @StevenCrowder, but with what you support – What is Democratic Capitalism? Saying “I have the right to make as much money as I want with as little government interference as I can talk everybody else into accepting through votes, lack of knowledge, and the general financial depression that causes people to sit in their chairs and do nothing.” It’s saying “I don’t want to share my money with anyone else, even though I’ve got 90% of all the money. I don’t give a damn about the lives of other people as long as they don’t try to interfere with how much money I’m allowed to keep for myself. I certainly don’t give a damn about their health. I don’t want to pay for healthcare, and I don’t want to pay for their schooling, and I don’t give a damn about the future beyond my own lifestyle and my family.
The worst thing in the world for people like this is what happened in the past, the Great Depression, when money had absolutely no value. How did that happen? We the people stopped buying the top 90%’s products. We the People stopped buying their bullshit, we the People went on, living as we were, poor as hell, hunting for our food, etc. What did the rich do back then? Many of them killed themselves because we the People destroyed the value of their paper.
Democratic Capitalism is not what the founding fathers intended for America when they first presented the Declaration of Independence, then constituted the Articles of Confederation, and later the Constitution of the United States. Did you know the Constitution was revised in 1992? That means it can be revised again, and changed, or completely re-written. 56 People signed the Declaration of Independence. It took 56 people to create a new system of government and country.
The Declaration didn’t say the unalienable Rights are “…the pursuit of Life, the pursuit of Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness,” No. The Declaration of Independence said specifically:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
This falls on deaf ears here toward StevenCrowder. This is more a rallying call to those who stumble across this as I did, who’re sick of the disturbed, ignorant, and egoistic prattle that spews from the greedy mouths of those who’ve lost sight of the fact that no one accomplishes anything by themselves, and being as such it’s in the best interest of all to take care of each other to the best of our abilities.
You don’t get a job on your own, or by yourself. People built that car you’re driving to the interview. People came up with safety laws that you must go by when driving to the interview. People created the gas you put in your car to get there. People selected you to interview. A person or People interviewed you.
The rich, like Trump, didn’t get rich on their own. Their parents and grandparents, in his case, sold something that many people wanted, healthy for the people or not. They didn’t care, often skirting the boundaries of what’s moral and legal to sell to other people, preying on the weaknesses of man. Grow the fuck up and learn what real responsibility is. It’s not just for yourself.
