    Get back to me when you have equality of work ethic and equality of talent.

    The message I am getting from the OP is that our educational system has failed the majority of our kids. This has caused them to be unqualified or unmotivated to be businesspeople or to obtain the education required for high paying positions in the world of work.

    That what you meant?

    The educational system has failed because failure was demanded. Think of income inequality on the educational level. It's grade inequality. Raise the poorly performing students so they don't have to work so hard and reduce the grade of the hard working students on the basis of fairness.

    yes it's obvious liberal policies are not working......and Obama's tax hikes on the middle class are not going to help any....

    Romney is going to cut everybody's taxes by 20%....this will cause much more economic activity which will produce more taxes to pay for stuff......and he will keep it deficit neutral by closing the loopholes and breaks for mainly the high-income people....

    It's the marginal tax rate that he proposes to reduce by 20%.

    Care to elaborate why that supposedly is? Or do you just paste other people's words?

    Furthermore, what exactly is income "equality?"

    Venezuala under Chavez has the lowest inquality of almost any nation. Who wants to move to Venezuela? Not me as it is filled with shortages of virtually everything. That is the economic model the Left wants us to adopt here. Screw them. "Inequality" is a made up issue as no one has been able to say a) what it is, and b) what harm it actually does.

    Seriously! You know nothing about work then and you hide behind the idea that if you make millions you are a ethical and hard worker. Nothing could be further from the truth, but live in your little bubble.

    What makes you think he knows nothing of work? He is quite right. Talented people who work hard tend to get ahead. Dullards with poor work habits and ethics, like you, tend to lag behind. Why is that anyone's concern?
