I would hope to hell that there is a rising tide of opposition to redistributive government policies. How can you even ask such a question? Where in the Constitution does it give anybody the right to take from those that have diligently worked and earned to give to those that have not? You are advocating Communism. Are you really so naive??
@8:52 am, please name one thing Paris Hilton has done to earn her money.
Why does she have it and not you? Someone in her family was smart enough to earn it and leave it to her. That doesn't make it yours, does it??
You asked where in the constitution does it give anybody the right to take from those that have diligently worked and earned to give to those who are not. Sounds like the same thing to me.
A lot of the rich earned their money on the backs of their employees. They aren't necessarily smarter, nor harder working, but may be greedy and lack a conscience -- e.g., buying a company, "turning it around" by sending jobs overseas and decimating jobs here in the US, then taking millions as "compensation". Walmart drove a lot of hardworking mom-and-pop stores out of business. Going back further, Vanderbilt made his money in railroads (how many died to build the railroads, for low wages?), Rockefeller in oil and banking (ditto for dangerous jobs in oil, banking tends to be shady at that level of profit), Kennedy in investing (but rumored to bootleg during Prohibition). That is, fortunes are often made in shady if not outright illegal areas -- corners are cut even if it hurts people, just so long as it doesn't hurt profits.And many fortunes are made out of luck (being in the right time at the right place) plus hard work, such as the dot.com millionaires/billionaires. My point is that just because a person has money, does not mean that person has more worth nor is that person more deserving than someone without money. As a society, we must take care of our most disadvantaged or we will all fail.
Where in the Constitution does it say we are supposed to be/remain a capitalist system?
