I've said it before and I'll say it again.
Confiscate all the wealth of those evil rich people, and the longest you'll last is 12 years before the money runs out.
This optimistically assumes the rich can liquidate their wealth immediately, turning it into cash to pay the parasitic classes. It also assumes there are enough buyers willing to part with roughly $50 trillion immediately to purchase said assets. It also optimistically assumes prices would maintain themselves in such a sell-off and INSANELY assumes some idiots would want to buy such assets when it's obvious the US no longer desires to protect property rights.
It's because of this simple math and economic logic, I love it when somebody further eviscerates the whiny, sniveling, and lazy classes who think they are somehow "oppressed" and therefore "entitled" to other people's lives in the form of their money. Not because the man points out reality, but because it's just further proof that no matter how far socialism succeeds in this country, in the end, they simply can't win. There's too many lazy people and not enough rich people's money to even boost them above $50,000 per year in GDP per capita. Socialists, liberal arts students, democrats, and other assorted delusionals think there's a vat of $200 trillion dollars that would result in everybody making $670,000 per year...if we only just spread it around.
Sorry people. There isn't enough money. It's going to boil down to you to help yourself...that is unless you're OK with just $50,000 per year...but oh, that's right. You're entitled to more I bet.
