Why is it that there are rich people while there are poor people?Why can't we all just be in the same league and in the same status?

Well, we can't be equal because we ARE not all equal. There are people who are smarter or work harder and people who don't. For me only everyone has to have the same possibility to become rich or poor, it should depend on how we work hard and not on how much money our parents have.

here's a story for you andrechan: i have two classmates: one is a son of their town mayor. he really doesn't do anything but he gets all the nice things. my other friend is a very talented artist(writing and drawing). he works during his vacant hours and still he's always so short of money that i almost always have to treat him for lunch. lets give this discussion a little twist if i may: WHY DOES THE ALL POWERFUL, ALL KNOWING, AND EVER SO WISE GOD ALLOW THIS?!!!!!

I don't know if God exists or not. If He's real, then your friend will be rewarded in the afterlife far more than the son of the mayor. But don't desperate, maybe your friend will find a way to make money from his talent

I totally agree with that that we should be all equal and either just be rich or be poor. Because so many people are being discriminated against because of them either being poor or being rich.

i believe that all of us are born equal, we have all of us hands to do. its how we use are hands and mind. there is poor because there are lazy. there a rich because there are hardworking.

I don't know. And that's one thing I would change about living in general. I wish all people were equal. I get annoyed when some people say that everybody is equal and that the ones that oppose should just shut their mouths. That's all crap and they know it. Some people walk with blinders over their faces. The sad part is that people have the ability to change the world, yet very few people are actually lifting a finger.

everyone is not born equal. This is what makes the world go around. We all have the same amount of time in each day (24 hours), and what we do with that time will have some effect on where we end up in life; however, some of us are born to families with more money than others. This means that some of us will have more or better opportunities in life than others. Some people who are born poor will get lucky and end up well-off or even wealthy, but most of us who are born poor will end up struggling all of our lives. This is the way it has always been. The poor have always been screwed over by the rich. They always have been, and they always will be. This is just a part of life. I do believe that an overhaul of the educational system in America will help to decrease the gaps between the "haves" and the "have-nots". I won't go into any details here, but there is a great book by Robert Kiyosaki called RICH DAD POOR DAD that illustrates this fact very well. I would advise everyone to get a copy and read it. You will understand the title of the book once you start to read it. In his book, Kiyosaki describes something that should be of major concern to parents today. It is well worth the time it takes to read it. I have read it four times already and will likely read it again before the year ends. Check it out for yourself...
