Income Inequality

Myth:

We give raises based on merit and experience (except in labor unions who honestly believe they shouldn’t have to work to get anything.)

In the free market we reward innovation, and we let the market handle the lack of it.

In America new ideas have not found their limits, and the need to produce, distribute, create, and expand will always exist.

Occupy really wants something different–they don’t want income equality, because that would require real work–they want evenly distributed “wealth equity,” regardless of how you went about getting it.

And that’s the lazy man’s approach.

So listen up Occupy. You don’t have a “right” to a dime of anything. Earn your keep. Work hard. Excel in your endeavors and continue to learn. Make yourself invaluable to the operation–or shock of shocks–go start your own.

American history–unlike the histories of the socialist empires you pine for–is filled with people who changed the course of millions of lives, and because of their creativity and commitment to excellence and hard work they grew companies that employed thousands, made millions, and some even left behind plans to continue to change the world long after they no longer walked among us.
