Americans are a hard-working bunch. Because of that fact, most Americans know when they are being fleeced. On any given day the average American will find numerous emails marked as spam that are always scams. When you receive a phone call from a telemarketer, you know that it’s a scam. And now that the government can’t pay it’s bills, you know that it is a scam as well.
A scam is when someone takes your money, then does not do the work promised. Now the scam is a price hike, or a hidden fee, or a tax to make up for bad management. It is Not an Honest Buck. When money is printed and not backed by production, wealth is diminished. Inflation is a false profit.
If you live in a house that increased in value 200% by inflation, you’re not a smarter person, or a harder worker, or gifted in some way. What you are is victim of inflation. Because if you sell that house, and the value goes down, you have just screwed the person who bought it. You have accrued ill-gotten gain. Now if you bought a house and improved it, you have gained a real profit, by doing work.
Most Americans dislike that kind of ill-gotten gain, because it creates greed. Most Americans are not greedy. Most Americans will not take money that is not earned. Making money on money, leveraging time (yours or others) to create vast amounts of money is the way of greed.
To know this is true, Americans will and are rejecting “fees” or taxes that are now replacing work. If you cancelled your Netflix account, you know what I am talking about. When you take your money out of BofA next year because of their $5 monthly debit card fee, you will know what I am talking about.
The honest working American people will reject these parasites.
