      Eh........I agree. There is no good reason to redistribute the wealth in America! hahaha

      Sorry, but that was irresistible, since your hub contains no content other than those 2 short paragraphs.

      Add the body of your article. I will probably still disagree with it, however.

      Thank you for "reading" my article.

      In Zen, it is often what is not said that has the greatest affect.

      This whole "Redistribution of wealth" tag-line comes from the Russian Revolution. When indeed the people who took over the government, redistributed captured wealth to the people. However eventually that wealth was then taken back by the government and everyone lived in poverty...except a few high officials. No one would think of doing such a thing here in America. I do not want someone else's wealth. What I do want however is for EVERYONE to share their wealth to the point where this supposedly Christian Nation acts like Christians. If a person has no clothes we should freely clothe them. If they have no medical care we should freely treat them. If they have no food we should freely feed them. We have the abundance, we have the networks and volunteers to succeed at this. If a person has no home, we should freely house them. Children especially should never be homeless. There should always be a place in the bosom of our society for everyone who is in need. Certainly a few bad people might try to take advantage of the system. They always do. But I believe most Americans long for a hand-up, not a hand-out. Having been on welfare and foodstamps, general relief, homeless, without food, shelter or proper clothing on some occassions I know. I know the people who live like that. And I know myself. I don't want Donald Trump's mansion or his wealth. I want people like him to be GENEROUS with that which God has given them. I want them to act responsibly to all those in need. Trump is not a man who works hard for his money. He makes good investments and good deals. He grows his money off the prosperity of the working class. If they become less prosperous and he does not, then he is literally mining or extracting too much money from the economy. He becomes greedy oppressive and immoral. He enslaves others to his whims and caprices. So that he no longer is being responsible for the gift he was first given. There is too much of that now. And the people whining about it have too much of our pension fund, real estate and retirement fund money which was stolen in 2006. It didn't disappear. It was a DEBT the Banks owed to one another that, if they paid it, would have bankrupted them. So they borrowed it from the rest of us. Some stole it because they had no need of it. Other places the states rejected the bail out money and put all their citizens in jeopardy over out-dated worries over becoming Communist or Socialist. Instead they became financial tyrants. The money needs to be allowed to flow freely among all the citizens of the country and not gambled with. Finance has to be looked at differently than it used to be. Personal Wealth does not exist. Money is not "owned." It is really a symbol of the output of our workers, our inventiveness and innovation and our ability to take certain well researched risks in order to make more money. Thank you for giving me a place to post my article. Hope someone reads it. Now, if I could make a few bucks from it...

      Dear Mr. Fredericks,

      Thank you for taking the time to comment on my article. An article such as this is an expression of an opinion. In order to articulate this opinion in a way that is fresh and has not to my knowledge been done, I choose to shock my reader in order for him to understand my position completely.

      It obviously had a strong effect on you and the other commentators or you would not have responded so strongly. Because of this, I would have to say that my lack of words was exactly the right volume to engage your mind.

      Since my intention was to create a reaction, I would have to say I used all the words necessary to convey my position in its entirety and to open the lines for discussion. To quote a Zen saying; "If a man is alone in the forest, and he opens his mouth and talks, is he still wrong"

      To others who may be interested, please see the link in this article to Part 2. I hope you find it interesting, and yes there are plenty of words!

      Actually, I don't know your position, from this article, because you didn't write anything. Because something hasn't been done doesn't mean it should be done. Your 'article' did convey a reaction. In my mind I was thinking, 'why do I work hard at writing when this guy just posts a picture with a caption?'

      Dear Mr. Fredericks,

      Again thank you for taking your time and effort to comment. The title leads one to the idea that I have logical reasons to redistribute wealth in America. I gave no reason to redistribute wealth because i do not believe in redistribution. That is the point. To say anything for or against an argument that has been talked to death since the Russian revolution would add nothing to the debate. I hope in the future the subtlety will not escape you.

      I'm glad to hear you are not for redistribution. Neither am I. Perhaps we could not add anything to the debate, but perhaps we could. Or we could retell the better arguments that have been made. I would disagree with you that it has been talked to death, if arguments have the power to persuade. If we are working to convince the reader, the reader who would vote for a politician in favor of redistribution, we still have work to do. Look at this past election.
