Dog eat dog didn’t work. That is why we developed them.

You are a self-made success. Yo work hard and smart and earned every dollar you got. Yet part of the reason that you were able to is because we have a safe stable society (relative speaking)
If you did not have taxes, and we did not have social safetfy nets, what do you think would happen. Yes some people would get jobs May would not. Are country would be unsafe. Think of your business. Is there any of your businesses in the bad parts of the city?
