    They should have given their money away? Money no one but them, earned?

    It's fine to give to charity, if it's your choice.

    "losing is the lot of everyone but the best of the best."

    But that is social Darwinism, a misrepresentation of Darwinism.

    The economy is not a fixed pie, trade and exchange are not win-lose.

    I am sorry. I am grateful to people who give a lot to charity.

    What I mean is that not being at the top of Society is OK.

    But basics like food, shelter, and medical care must be provided for everyone.

    Now, I always piss off my acquaintances on the right when I do allow that a lot about healthcare in this country could and should be a lot better. But other than that... No to the rest of your post.

    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.
