Because we don't know what's going on in our own backyards. The media likes to portray America as a RICH nation, just like they like to portray China as a POOR nation, and India as a POOR nation. And Saudia Arabia as a POOR nation.
America is a Rich nation, most of the wealthiest people on the planet are Americans... Wealth distribution in America... well thats a different story.
How about we let us all keep more of our money ? Wealth distribution is a communist idea.
When I say distribution, I dont mean the verb, er the act of... I mean as a way of looking at the vast disparity of wealth in and among various Americans or people with American citizenship.
I'm a libertarian, I don't believe in federal taxation, or the act of moving wealth around while ignoring the laws of free-market economic conditions.
