So what is your point? That you are wealthy and smart? If we had the same economic system post-redistribution you are probably close to right, but that doesn't change the essential unfairness of our current social/economic system...and that moral people who care should want to change it...
Not rich or smart. Your kneejerk reaction to my observation tells me all that I care to know about you. Agree with me or else. Clintonian at its worst. Live your life as you please but things are as they are and are not likely to change just because you wish it so. There are always going to be people who will take your handout and they will be back for more. Teach a man to fish and he can feed himself. Give him a fish and he will be hungry in a few hours and he will be looking for you to give him another.
The very weathy (i.e. rockfeller,gates and alike) have created far more jobs, GDP and wealth and this country... billion times more than thier individual wealth. Without wealth creaters (that is allowed by captalism) this country would be alot worst off with many more homeless.
You can be poor and/or homeless and still be quite happy. It's all a frame of mind which IMO, more often then not, is by choice.
