Come on, all you bootstrapping (insert political party here)
you Ayn Rand enthusiasts.
Please, show me how its done. Not by your pompous theories and meaningless words. I need to see you put your money where your mouth is.
Show me how your ideas hold up to reality TODAY. Not twenty years ago.
I will walk you through it:
As of today, you have:
No savings. No retirement. No valuables on hand. No job. No experience. No credit. Your credit score is 80.
I’ll give you $200 in checking (monopoly rules).
Keep your vehicle, and continue living in your current abode, as long as you are paying a mortgage or rent.
Your resume may include your education, but no work experience beyond age 21.
You must keep all your debts.
As of today, you have no spouse or parent to support you in any way.
No health insurance, no car insurance.
Enlighten me. Show me how great the current market system is, and how well it helps hard-working Americans succeed. I am having trouble understanding the practical applications.
Now, if you need me to switch places with you, I would be happy to help you out with that.
