14. " He has enough money and property to survive anything the economy can throw at him"

Right up to the point of a total economic collapse.

Then.....well.....all that "money" will be worth doodly squat and he'll be hunting and/or trapping his food or scraping trash cans like the rest of us.

Next time you see him, ask him what he would do if his nearest grocery store was empty and no trucks were coming to replenish it or any other grocery store, for that matter. Ask him what he would do if every ATM he tried was empty and every merchant began refusing his credit cards and checks.

"I shouldn't have to pay for anyone else"

Does that extend to the education system also? Does he want to live in a country full of morons? Because that is where conservative political and economic ideology is driving us.

I'm also curious if he is pro military, and all that insinuates. Is he fine with spending a billion and a half a day on a bloated military while children within 100 miles of him go hungry tonight? Remind him that tax dollars make the CEO's of the top defense contractors millionaires. Is he fine with that?

My oldest brother has done very well for himself also, but he is the most progressive minded individual I know.
