I dont have much time to debate, as i am busy working to earn my own money to support my own family instead of sitting of my butt complaining that others have more than me. Let me just point out one huge fallacy on that page "We believe that civil rights and economic rights are inseparable" Civil rights in america include the right to private property. in fact, thats one of the founding principles of the
political structure of the US.Those who dont like the concept of private property should move to a more socialist country. America is the most powerful nation in the world because it is capitalist, and because its creation was directly influenced by God. Believe it or not, God is a capitalist. He wants everyone to give charitably to one another because they want to, not because they are forced to. If we are forced to be charitable, no one really benefits.
This wins best quote of the day hands down - "America is the most powerful nation in the world because it is capitalist, and because its creation was directly influenced by God. Believe it or not, God is a capitalist."
