Letter: The promise of opportunity

But for the promise of shared poverty that are made by the progressive, communist, socialist Democrats and RINOs, capitalism is the one true saver of the poor. No system can afford to promise outcomes, and only capitalism can promise so much opportunity for any individual who wants to work and sacrifice for a shot at prosperity and a better life. Even if you fail to become Donald Trump, Barack Obama or Mike Tyson, you can be better off.

No government can ever steal from those who have it and give to those who don't and ever create wealth for all. The only thing that comes of government redistribution of wealth is shared poverty. We must all be allowed to keep what we earn and earn what we keep. There is not any other moral or honorable way to approach the problem.

Want to be a victim? So be one, leech off of others' compassion and generosity and you will still find that you have not found opportunity or prosperity, and after a lifetime of living in dependency you never will. There is no substitute for hard work, tenacity and your American Dream.
