Letter: Reduce avarice by sharing the wealth

The eternal question is “Why can’t we all get along?” The simple answer is avarice. And that is the problem with capitalism: It encourages avarice. There is very little political will to end this legal vice. Why is that?

What happened to the 1964 war on poverty? Nothing! Crime is largely driven by poverty. End poverty however you wish, and crime rates will dramatically decrease.

Give people an equal opportunity and they will succeed. A rising tide raises all boats.

Let’s lift each other up. End avarice. Reconsider socialism; it’s not what you might think.

If we’re all equal under the law, then why are we all not financially capable of competing? Programs that help this become a reality are being eliminated by Guess Who?

We need a progressive, non-geriatric woman in the White House.
