Wow, Trumped is the new Godwin...
The idea that financials is overly complex and only understood by elites is why trickle-down seemed like good policy for so long, it's why elites get away with lower taxes on capital gains. It's responsible for much evil. Let me be more specific about why your argument is bullshit and how even someone less educated than I should easily spot it.

Point one, it is designed to enrich one group, at the expense of others. This is the classic, "I should get to keep what's mine" argument favored by the wealthy. Never mind that it applies to no other group. Even Jesus said "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's..."

Two, your own argument uses weasel words like "potentially" and "likely".

Basically, you're arguing that capital investors should have more rights then labor investors, which has been true for decades. You are making the conservative argument and hiding behind a fog of words.

I've got family members with nasty health complications from easily treatable problems that were let go because the doctor didn't want to order tests in case they came back negative. If a test comes back negative the doctors never get paid.I've got family members with nasty health complications from easily treatable problems that were let go because the doctor didn't want to order tests in case they came back negative.

Sounds like this doc runs his own lab.

Oh, it would be terrible, so was the civil war. Most people don't look much beyond the organized fighting in the east and major armies in the west.The book 1860 really opened my eyes to how much the north really didn't want to kill (or die) over this issue, but the south was determined.
Your right about the Nationalistic fervor of the late 19th early 20th century, that's gone. Your also right that any large scale conflict would be horrible. Your wrong about the north rolling in and stomping stupid southerners, it was more like japan's attack on pearl harbor, a calculated risk, without a realization that a giant was sleeping.
