People always vote their pocketbooks. The real problem is the wealth distribution curve. Dems believe in changing it through redistribution. Republicans want to go back to the system that maintains the curve weighted to the rich. The door is wide open for the Republicans to advocate a new MARKET-BASED system that creates a fairer wealth distribution curve. To do that you have to be creative. Politicians by nature are not creative people. We need people like Thomas Sowell to lead the way. But mr Sowell has not offered the solution to my knowledge. Call me. I'll show you haw to do it.

No, you guys. You don't get it. I'm not advocating a system that takes from the rich and gives to the poor. I'm advocating a system that allows a greater portion of the population to achieve wealth through their own creativity and hard work, not through any government involvement. Work for a large corporation. You'll get paid for the hours you work, not for your ideas or productivity. Under the system you support, capitalist incentives end when you agree to work for wages or salary. That system needs to change.

RJBJr calls it income inequality. Those risking everything to get here call it the American Dream.

Hehe. I can see where this is going. And if I'm on a part of the curve that you feel has too much "weight," you'll help even out the distribution between us?

No thanks. I'm not buying the thing about $X,XXX dollars per month working from home, either.

Wealth is not "distributed".

There is no set pool of money to be passed out by politicians according to their personal whims.

Wealth is earned -- by individual people through their individual efforts. Additionally, wealth is not restricted to a set about. It is created as people apply their gifts, talents, and efforts to what they have in order to increase its value.

He does. One key "tell" is the "weighted to the rich" comment. The system is ALWAYS weighted to the "rich". The question is "who are the rich and how do you become one". In a large government system, government connections are how you get rich. The USSR had rich people, they were all in the Communist Party.
Many ideas presented as "new" are just rehashes of old ideas that have been tried before -- and have failed before. So it is no surprise that the recent "Growth and Opportunity Project" report to the Republican National Committee is a classic example of what previous generations called "Me too" Republicanism.

These are Republicans who think that the key to winning elections is to do more of what the Democrats are doing. In effect, they say "me too" on issues such as immigration, in hopes of gaining more new votes than they lose by betraying their existing supporters.
