How many years will it take for the "benefits" of Capitalism to "Trickle Down" to the majority of Americans?
First, Americans design and build great products, desired world wide. Jobs are created in new factories and wages rise as corporations vie for quality educated and effective workers, this increases American buying power and the tax base. Sort of return to 1960-1970, without the race/gay/immigrant problems. When will this actually work?

Production is the problem. We produce less in the United States than we used to. Employees cost more here and it is no longer true that they are that much superior to employees in other countries.

It doesn't work that way. If we didn't get taxed to death, I wouldn't care how much money these corporations made. But then again, maybe those corporations are afraid of our freedom. They might go broke, if we get an education.

The rich wouldn't have a dime without the middle class and working poor to buy their products. Trickle down is a lie and always has been.

Since the benefit of Capitalism is in fact employment, that provides a living wage, it wouldn't take very long since everyone would be employed. Federalizing the means of living and/or income however, is counterproductive to Capitalism.
