First, excellent common sense from venture capitalist Nick Hanauer, who mentions that the rich aren't the job creators, the middle class is. And that we all do better WHEN WE ALL DO BETTER. You may have seen this before, but it's worth checking out again. Lots of good info.
And now here's the bad guy being honest, from Gordon Gekko in my favorite scene in Wall Street. "I create nothing, I OWN." Turn it up! (the sound's a bit quiet on it).
"Now you're not naive enough to believe we're living in a democracy, are you Buddy?"
Only if we step up and keep it alive. And make the "job creators" pay from what they've been stealing from the other 99% of us.
