from December 2011, Government
Throughout the history of mankind, we've always had the rich, and we've always had the poor. What makes America different, what makes her special, is we have a third economic tier called the "middle class". Only liberty and capitalism give you this middle class. No other system of economics (capitalism) & government (representative republic) combine to do so. This combination creates this robust middle tier and allows all to move upward based on individual effort and drive. This system promotes innovation and betterment for all.
And this is exactly why we must stay true to the founders of our country and not follow the ways of our current president who sells us utopia but whose policies are moving us back to the world of a few rich, many poor and none in-between.
