Do the rich get richer and the poorer get poorer? In America the land of opportunity there is unlimited ways for an individual to make it big. You may be born into poverty and die wealthy. There is also the possibility of opposite happening to you also. In America the worst and best of people all have the same chance to make it. This is what “I feel we are to believe and should convince ourselves of”. The rich do get richer and the poor do get poorer.
Money is power and because the all mighty dolor is so powerfull it has made the United States the power house of the World. Giving US full power, rulership and authority over the rest of the world.

Not because it talked about making money but the simple lessons I learned in one day for free that I never looked at myself. Just one player (Bill Gates, perhaps) in the end will be the owner of the world. The vast majority of Americans are doing as well as we are because a million or so are making a lot of money figuring out how to create new products and new ways to increase our productivity. By most standards Thomas was remarkable people -- he was an orphan, his adoptive mother died when he was 5. The whole focus on income inequality is mistaken.
