What many on the Left fail to realize or intentionally deny is that American Capitalism, when Government is mostly absent, has been and IS the driving force alleviating Poverty in America....that all those Capitalists making unimaginable amounts of wealth, in the process raise the standard of living for ALL Americans.
Further, according to Forbes, CATO and many other institutions, about 98.7% of the Top 1%, that One Percent the Left constantly attacks, predominantly IS and votes Democrat, are self-made millionaires and billionaires, and their thirst for even more $$$$$ is a driving force that creates more jobs, more wealth, more tax revenues and less poverty.
Besides, there is no such thing as a Truly Poor American. I laugh at the notion. A ‘poor person’ in America has a higher standard of living than a well-off person in any Third World country. Thank GOD for hard working, narcissistic, grandiose, self-centered Americans.
