Obama is in the process of completely " Nationlizing " wealth . Not by the old fashioned way of leftist dictators , starting with industry , but by laying claim to the earnings of everyone .
People find it much easier to get the necessities from government then work for the same amount of money .
The graduated incometax makes it prohibitive to build Capital , so "Capitalism doesn't work " .
Unless a person has something special to offer ( sports, science , entertainment .....) he/she can't get ahead .
The Flat , or better , the Fair Tax could be the answer , but those would take the power away from the politicians and give it back to the people .
