Income inequality has become one of the big issues of our time. However, our national and local leaders promise help, but what they’re preaching is not helping anyone. Politicians promise “job growth” and “income growth” but government is not a job creator. The governments’ role is to keep the peace and punish lawbreakers. When a government official promises you “better jobs,” or “higher wages” they are lying to you. Governments don’t create wealth. They only redistribute wealth that others have created.
At thirteen I had my own lawn mowing business. My mother worked as a beautician (what we call “stylist” today), she served an older clientele and I received the spoils of their need to have their lawn mowed. I made good money for a teenager at that time but I made a lasting mistake because no one in my life told me what I am going to tell you today.
