The Share the Wealth Society:

The Share the Wealth Society A Presentation on Wealth Redistribution, Consumer Debt, and Our Recently Launched Financial Club By Senator Huey P. Long

Unfair Wealth Distribution:

Unfair Wealth Distribution In the United States, more wealth is owned by the top 12 richest men than is owned by 120 million people. However, the Declaration of Independence says: "We hold the view that all men are created equal .”

The US is Enviably Rich in Resources:

The US is Enviably Rich in Resources We have too much cotton. We have too much wheat. We have too much corn. We have too much potatoes. And yet millions of children are starving .

US Consumers Have Too Much Debt:

US Consumers Have Too Much Debt Consumers owe $272 million. Yet all of the currency in circulation only equals $6 million. There isn’t enough money to cover all of those debts.

The Rich are Too Rich:

The Rich are Too Rich The 10 richest men run 85% of the United States . These activities include banking, retailing, steel, finance and transportation. This concentration of wealth and industry is not what our forefathers stood for, men like Daniel Webster, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, William Jennings Bryan and Theodore Roosevelt.

Recent Presidential Administrations:

Recent Presidential Administrations Recent administrations have said there must be wealth decentralization. They have done nothing to date about it, though.

The Share the Wealth Society:

The Share the Wealth Society Today we announce the exciting launch of the Share the Wealth Society . Our club will disallow any man from owning more than $50 million in wealth. We reserve the right to tweak that limit to instead be $10-15 million.

Every Man a King :

Every Man a King Every man has earned the right to be as a king in the United States and so our motto will be: “ Every Man a King .” Minimum wealth in the United States will be set at $5,000 . This is based on a poverty-rate factor of 33% being applied to the average US household wealth of $15,000.

Guaranteed Pensions:

Guaranteed Pensions You are eligible for guaranteed pensions only if you earn less than $1,000 per year and own less than $10,000 in property. You must be over the age of 59. The guaranteed pension rate will be $30 per month .

Other Benefits:

Why weep or slumber America Land of brave and true With castles and clothing and food for all All belongs to you Every man a King, every man a King For you can be a millionaire But there's something belonging to others There's enough for all people to share When it's sunny June and December too Or in the Winter time or Spring There'll be peace without end Every neighbor a friend With every man a King. www.ClaudePenland.com :
