At the Democratic National Convention, Elizabeth Warren explains the rationale for the Equalization Amendment. "If we have the chance to fight on a level playing field—where everyone pays a fair share and everyone has a real shot—then no one can stop us. President Obama ... is fighting to level that playing field—because we know that the economy doesn't grow from the top down, but from the middle class out and the bottom up."
A PROPER WEALTH TAX.

End the abuse!
American citizens are entitled to the rights and privileges set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
It's time to claim our rights as citizens and Equalize Now!
What This Means
For centuries, American elites have accumulated vast wealth. No amount of tinkering with income tax rates--as unfair as these are--will make a meaningful difference. Even if the government confiscated all the income of the top 1%, the revenue would have negligible impact on our budget deficits and the well-being of all citizens.
Post-Equalization, we will see a jolt to the economy as billions of dollars in demand stimulates more invention, innovation, and production than ever before in world history. Soon citizens in other countries will follow the American example and people everywhere will finally achieve the long-sought dream of living in peace.
