    I trust the profit motive more than power given to individuals. You are welcome to be a sheep but I've been in business for over thirty years. The profit motives keeps me competitive, innovative and busy.

    I don't build rocket ships, neither do most people. Entrepreneurs often do get investments, not from "organizations" as you call them, but investors or businesses. Capitalism is what made the US number one but daily we see geniuses that think socialism led to our success. And more of it will yield even better results.

    If everyone cared enough to vote things would get better but they've convinced enough of us it doesn't matter.

    So I agree with you. Most people aren't that smart.

    If poor people voted do you think they be as poor as they are now? Do you think all the profits would be going to the top?

    Unions created a middle class the world had never seen before. But it wasn't easy unionizing. What do poor people have to do to unite? All they have to do is vote every 2 years
