  • Citizens are the supreme inhabitants of this nation
  • Our government should operate within its means

Who Does Wealth Belong To?

First, an admission that I came to the conclusion that the title of the current series should be “Ten Values We Can Agree On For America”. I had been saying “things” instead of “values” and I think Values is much more descriptive.

So, who does wealth belong to? My proposal is that it belongs to those who generate it. Whether it’s a five-figure income or a million-dollar inheritance, I think that it’s not up to the government to divide that money equally.

Let me know what you think.
