A Democracy Must Serve All of Its People and All of Its Infrastructures
To study the above results in detail, see Kennickell, Arthur B. and R. Louise Woodburn (April 1992), "Estimation of Household net Worth Using Model-based and Design-based Weights" and Kennick ell, Arthur B., Douglas A. McManus, and R. Louise Woodburn (March 1996) "Weighting Design for the 1992 Survey of Consumer Finances," Washington, D.C., Federal Reserve System.
However, the results above do not serve all people of the democracy that the founders created in the U.S. Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.
From the 1970s to the Obama administration, Nixon and the democrats tried to change the distribution of this national wealth so that the USA would maintain its democracy. But the republicans would continually reverse these changes, during the presidencies of Reagan and the Bushes, by increasing the top wealthy class from 1% to 2 %.
The argument of the republicans says that wealthy investors are needed in order to operate a money-based, low-debt economy. But this argument has changed the USA from a democracy to an oligarchy/plutocracy. (click)
However, this form of change from democracy to oligarchy/plutocracy by the republicans is quiet because it impacts the general development of the USA. Republicans are quiet because investors do not invest in infrastructures such as roads, bridges, schools, parks, etc. because infrastructures do not produce profits for investors. To republicans, infrastructure are thus losses.
Today's republican candidates are focusing mostly on taxes and the limits of government. The people of the USA are not going to accept their narrow view of the USA. So these candidates better prepare to explain how they expect to serve all Americans and how they expect to develop infrastructures throughout the USA.
