Economic Freedom at the Cost of Equality?

America has the highest rate of economic inequality of any ‘democracy’ in the world, with those at the top of the the economic food chain, that is the top 1%, own one third of the nation’s entire wealth. Bill Gates alone has accumulated more than $57 billion, and with all that money it is undeniable that a vast amount of power was also accumulated. What’s frightening, or of a potential danger, in this system is that these people were not elected, and have gained their power through wealth, and like the politician, they assume a position of of great responsibility. It is that reasoning alone which justifies a government regulated economy and the redistribution of wealth. Not to mention the reduction in crime, and poverty, as well as an increase in the nations standard of living, would also be offshoots from the redistribution of wealth. Support human equality by not allowing a small group of individuals to assume unchecked positions powers.

The government is giving out tax dollars to select religious organizations, sound great? Here’s the catch, the oversight agency does not investigate unless there is a public complaint. Using the FOIA (freedom of information act) the ACLU has been attempting to gather information on these grants; however they have been denied access to what should be public information. So, now more tax dollars are spent battling the ACLU in court to deny them what is the right of every American.
