Become a socialist, get rich
The left talks incessantly of "income inequality" without ever noting that socialist countries have large income inequalities also. The recently deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is estimated to have amassed a personal fortune of $2 billion. Yasser Arafat's net worth was estimated as in excess of $1 billion, much of which was diverted from foreign aid for his dirt-poor Palestinian people. Forbes estimated Fidel Castro's net worth at over half a billion while his countrymen remain impoverished.
