nothing is doing you from hitting the lottery but, the deck is stacked against you &, the chances of you doing so is slim to none.<quoted text>
Hard work and personal responsibility are what made this country great, the dems are no longer interested in either. Nothing nor no one is keeping you from being the next Bill Gates.
What America needs is less Oblamer, less demorats in office. The states doing well now are all republican controlled.
$500 billion a year in welfare and freebies does not instill a work ethic in people and is not sustainable.
If the current system wasn't a failure, the extension of the Bush tax cuts, Obama raising taxes on folks making over $400,000 & families over $450,000, along with the sequester should've have live to the economy but, it didn't. Capitalism is a system designed to keep majority circulating amongst the top, & the middle class (poor) are the batteries that gives the machine the juice to operate, so in essence, the top use money & access to money to drain the life & blood out of the middle class (poor). Exactly how does it benefit America for billionaires like Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey to make more money in a year then the average American will make in 2 lifetimes? Exactly, it doesn't & it benefits America even less when their type pays little to no taxes in their income. The govt at this point is forced to continue infusing capitol into the economy to money made by the rich & stashed in banks like can goods in a cupboard. The idea of you been make it if you try is smoke & mirrors, & nothing more than inspiration for the blind eye & dead mind to give their flesh blood & live to a evil corrupt system whom really doesn't give a shit about you!
