The top 1%: This is not what democracy looks like

I didn't realize that "Democracy" was an economic system.



Maybe some get pissed off when they see a graphic like that.

I get motivated to go get my slice.

Yup!


Per Madison democracies become profligate with the majority voting to steal property. That, imo, has to do with economics.

If people don't like their jobs or think they're paid unfairly, then get a new job or work your ass off to get promoted.

I don't make a ton of money, but given my job, I make what I deserve. Maybe I'm a little underpaid or overpaid, but it's just a matter of a few thousand in either direction. I'm not going to begrudge somebody else for what they make as long as my salary is reasonably fair.

This is what fires me up. It says a lot that people side with owners in the NFL, but side with lower-income employees outside the NFL. If you ask me, NFL players are grossly underpaid. The fact that the public sides with the owners tells you that there's a lot of jealousy against people who make money.

Seems like basic math to me. The rich own more of the wealth than those who are not rich. Isn't that what makes a person rich?
