Government is supposed to be for all people, not just the po'.

There are many reasons for the po' being po'. Laziness is definitely a big one.

Another reason is lack of incentive. Why try to earn your wealth when government keeps giving you handouts?

Also, a lot of people simply don't care about being rich. I'm one of them. Not everyone has the desire to be a millionaire or billionaire. A lot of people are simply appreciative and content with what they have.

Most poor people work harder than the average rich person.  It is not about laziness.  It is about opportunity.

I'm referring to putting in the work needed to take advantage of your opportunities.

If you want to be rich, work hard to excel in school. Work hard to earn a scholarship. Work hard to be the best in your class. Go the extra mile to get ahead of your peers. Do internships. Work two jobs. Study.

Whatever you want to achieve, *EARN* it. Don't just sit on your lazy butt and say, "The white man is holding me down!"

Perhaps on your little island in the Pacific, there is a more egalitarian approach. But still in much of the USA, people of color, or the wrong gender, are held back no matter how hard they work.

And I'm not going to get into those who drop out of college because they think they know everything they need to know already.

And your opportunity to succeed will still be harder than the rich privilege whose parents will lie and cheat to get you into top schools and get you out of legal troubles and connect you to the best possible careers.

No one says you have the right same opportunities. That's not how life works. Some people are born blind or without hearing. Some are born to poverty. You don't have a Constitutional right to be born fully healthy and with $500,000 in your bank account.

Some people have to work harder than others. Whether you do or you don't, that's up to you. In the end, you succeed or fail based on your own merits.

I always use myself as an example. I wasn't born to a wealthy family. We never got to live in the nice areas like Kahala or Hawaii Kai. Still, if I had worked harder in school and applied myself more and was more ambitious, I had the opportunity to earn a better lot in life than I have now. My oldest brother had it even harder than I did, but he was a great student with big goals, and he worked hard, and now he's very successful at what he does. He is able to make a lot of money for himself and his family.

I'm probably poorer than you are, but you never see me whining about being held down or the system being unfair. We reap what we sow.

I prefer playing RISK and killing off everyone and conquering the whole world. Why is it that the "Born to Lose" crowd always lose?  Oh wait!  I answered my own question!  Grin

Never said that you have the right to the same opportunities.  What I am saying is that you should not demonize those who do not have the same opportunities as if it were their fault.

A lot of times, it *IS* their fault.

Most of the time it is not.
