There seems to be a common misconception that lowering taxes and increasing the wage gap between rich to poor somehow increases the number of rich people or the number of opportunities, but that is simply not the case.
Simple math says that since we are in a closed system and do not trade with space aliens or anything that if rich people made less there would be more money left over for others. If rich people only made 10 times as much instead of 1000 times more then their workers then there could be a maximum of around 9% of the population that could be rich versus the only .09% that can truly be "rich" now. If you only have a couple million then you are just middle class and are almost poor compared to the billionaires out there. If someone has 2 billion and you only have 2 million simple math says that they have 1000 times more then you do.
The more money a rich person has the less of them there can be versus the poor working class (the actual producers). If we start with 100 some things we can either divide that 100 into 100 equal parts, or we could break it up into 2 parts of 50, 5 parts of 20, 10 parts of 10, etc., and we could unequally divide it up like we do in our current system, which is how we have "rich" people in the first place. They demand that they get "more" then you do and you let it happen. Why do people accept unfair deals...beats the f*** out of me? Maybe
they are stupid and need to be educated is all?
"I have never been paid by a poor person"...gee how the f*** did they get rich again? Do I have to mention unfair deals again or should I talk about bending, breaking, ignoring of rules, etc.? Let me guess they were born rich...were did their parents get the money from then? Let me guess they bent over and chit out all of that money...no wonder it is so dirty. The reality is that they overcharge people, underpay their workers, and keep the rest (profits) for themselves. They vacuum up all the money until there is none left over forcing the
government to print out more to meet the demand since "it is theirs and they worked hard for it". That is why only a rich person has any money to hire you moron. They have MORE then you do. Why is that? If they actually worked for it then maybe you should work some too. If they lied, cheated, stole, B.S., etc. then they do not really deserve it.
There needs to be some balance and 10 to 20 times more then others is PLENTY. It is more then enough of a reward to encourage people to work and to try hard. It also forces those "special" people to work more, which is more a benefit to society. If we limit them to 10 times more then others then there is only so long that they cannot work for or else they will eventually run out of money. If they have 1000 times more then others do. What motivation do they have to work hard? They will more then likely sit on their a$$, NOT WORK, and enjoy their money unless they are an addict. I wonder why many rich kids do not work hard at all and enjoy their parents' hard earned money instead.
Billionaires need to pay a higher percentage of taxes compared to millionaires and so on. We need more tax brackets and higher taxes or else since workers are already taxed heavily (over 50%) by the companies who for whom they work. There was a reason this country had a 90%-70% top tax rate between the 1940s to 1982. Either tax your workers less or pay their taxes for them morons, it is pretty f***ing
simple, but you demand that you get MORE then others do by a HUGE margin. If you want less rich people then lower taxes, let them keep more for themselves, and there will be less for others (do not forget about inflation morons and how much the dollar has been devalued since then).
