    I have to read the debate before I vote but most likely I will agree with Dante's presentation.

    The premise of the debate is something that I am not sure I understand.

    Is this somehow implying that wealth distribution would be a good thing in today's day and age ?

    Unfortunately it's like the election of 2008 -- consider the alternative.

    The poll is closed but if I had voted for Dante's opponent I'd Roo the day...

    NOTE: to show support for Dante in addressing this issue at all,
    I would be willing to offer my vote to Dante to balance it and show some "redistribution"
    to encourage INCLUSION and participate by equal respect for all views, even if I disagree.

    If the point of interacting is to share both sides and reach an understanding,
    I value that interaction and purpose; and it doesn't matter so much to me who votes for which side, what matters is if we resolve the conflict and reach an agreed conclusion.

    Sorry I missed this.

    I would say USA greatness was DESPITE the flaws of abusing free market
    as capitalism to SEIZE property from others, as in Hawaii and disenfranchising
    Blacks from owning property or even their own bodies.

    That is not redistribution of wealth but imperialism.
    There are good things that came from corporate investment for profit
    but also bad things from abuses we are still addressing today.

    The ideal system would be where people apply and follow different systems
    that work for different situations, but by free will and collaborative partnership.
    So if you have pockets of socialism or capitalism, etc., they are still checked
    by Constitutional principles to make sure there are no abuses against individuals.
    But they are operated and managed by voluntary participation or free choice.
