How philanthropic are you?
Instead of Republicans leaning Libertarian there needs to be a strong third party like the Libertarian Party. Until we have more than two choices for a Presidential election, nothing will get fixed IMHO.
Not all jobs are equal. No way a knucle dragger digging a ditch for should be paid the same as the engineer who designed that ditch. There are plenty of people who countless hours at menial jobs, and that is all the will ever do. I was a laborer at one time. I was talking to another laborer who was in his 40's. I asked him why he wasn't an operator yet? He didn't want to be. More responsibilty and he liked hard labour. I thought he was idiot, but it takes all kinds to build roads. You can work your way up in America, it isn't easy. I don't know what you don't understand about that. Some may have a harder time getting to the "top", but with work and perseverance, they can get there, or close to it.
I see no problem with the leading predictor of where someone ends up on the income scale being where they start. Somebody put the work in to get them there. Donald Trumps kids have a headstart, good for them that they had a dad that made sure his children were setup. Same with the Kennedy's, the Walton's, the Bush's... I don't have a problem with that at all.
Good for following Carnegie. We all have our calling and/or follow what we believe. There are a few words from James that I hold dear, we are to take care of the orphans and widows.
I agree that hard work can help you reach many of your goals, but I do think it's a bit naive to assume that America is strictly a meritocracy when it comes to moving up in the workplace. This is just based off of my experiences, yours could be completely different.
Edit: It's actually not limited to only the workplace imo.

I don't think libs are worse at it in general, they just were when it came to Bush. It is going to be hard to top the classlessness that went on during the Bush years.
Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
I think you would have loved the feudal era . . .
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
There were riots with people screaming "the south will rise again" to black people less than 48 hours ago in Mississippi. Yeah, gotta love that class!
As long as I was royalty . . .
You would have loved Lenin . . .
Am I doing it right?

Naw, that was a dictatorship. I'm not a Communist, nor am I a Socialist.
I'd dig a philosopher king, but then again, I'd also like to kick it with Santa.
You do know Bush lowered taxes for the middle class right? "The Bush Tax Cuts" lowered EVERYBODIES taxes. Common misconception is that he only lowered rich people's.
Check out my 2 deep of UM's base 4-3 under defense, let me know your thoughts. Last updated: 3/28/12
Well when the left continually repeated the false claim, and the media let it go unchecked...some sheeple actually think it was true.
Seriously? No shit. Everyone is aware. That's not the point. When the very rich have done really well for a decade and everyone else hasn't, you can't run on cutting the very rich's taxes again. It's stupid..
