That's not fair! You've got more!
It's not fair that I don't have a new car, but you do.
It's not fair that my house is old, but yours is bigger and newer.
It's not fair that my hair is receding while I'm still in my 30's.
It's not fair that I can't fit in the same clothes as you.
It's not fair that I have a size 18 boot (when I can find one) without FULL compensation elsewhere.
It's not fair that, as a child, I had an allergy to wheat.
It's not fair that I had to work when my friends played.
It's not fair that I work nights while my friends work regular shifts.
It's not fair that you have more money than me.
It's not fair that you have more than I do, and I have less than you do.
It's not fair.
And now you're telling me that we don't have enough money to give me more, when you clearly have more than me? That's not fair.
First, we are not either broke. And second, it's not fair that you have more than me:
As Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) pointed out in a little-noticed but powerful speech on the economy in December, “during the past 20 years, 56 percent of all income growth went to the top 1 percent of households. Even more unbelievably, a third of all income growth went to just the top one-tenth of 1 percent.” Some people are definitely not broke, yet we can’t even think about raising their taxes.Well, duh! There's PLENTY of money-- it's just that you elites* have taken it all.
This, my friends, is how we delude ourselves into giving up capitalism for socialism.
*Defined as "those who have more than I deem to be appropriate."
