Poverty Question #1

"Why Do We Have Poverty in America?"

Lack of skills? Underemployment? High Cost of Living? Pride? Lack of Ambition? Family tradition? Bad luck?

What are your thoughts? Why do we have poverty in a land full of opportunity, freedom and prosperity?

Please leave your comments.


  1. greed, ignorance, governmental interference (not necessarily in that order)

  2. Greed is the biggest factor. The poor are unwilling to sacrifice aspects of their lifestyle that they feel they deserve (who deserves a plasma tv?), and the wealthy are unwilling to help.
