The term wealth inequality is a euphemism that appears to make the assumption that having resources is some how a right that every person should be guaranteed from birth. Accepting this premise, allows individuals to believe that their well being is the responsibility of some one or some thing other than themselves. Our country's birth and growth was not based upon this premise. "Wealth inequality" is not the problem in America, although the perception that it is, the cause of poverty, is.
Our country has made a once hard working, self supporting citizen base into parasites that live off a federal government that acts like a giant mammary gland. We have a spoiled nation where only the immigrants seem to know that they have to work for a living to support their families. (Even squirrels know that they have to store nuts away for the winter to survive). This is unsustainable. Government must pull back, so that people can be allowed to keep the money that they earn from their labors. Small businesses must be allowed to grow and flourish.
As the belief in God diminishes in America, so do the morals that have historically prevented people from making their own rules to balance what they experience as an unfair equation.We are already seeing increases in crime in areas that have been previously considered safe spots. For instance, the city and surrounding area of Oakland, California. Many retirees are choosing to live in gated communities because they feel unsafe living in their own homes elsewhere.That is like living in some third world countries, where gangs will kill a whole family to obtain the contents of their home. Liberal policies have increased the divide between rich and poor because they do not support free enterprise, the work ethic, traditional families or biblical morality. Loss of those values leads to chaos, which is what we are seeing in the White House and throughout our country everyday. Chaos is a place where people make up the rules as they go along and where there are no consequences for disregarding the laws that are in place to maintain a sustainable society.
