He started a one-man hardware

He started a one-man hardware corner store. I think Gary clearly started in the bottom 99% and worked his way into the 1%.

I agree that people shouldn't get into or remain in the 1% by leveraging the government to subsidize their businesses, cripple their competition, and bend the laws in their favor. Agree heartily on that point.

But working your way from the ground up on your own effort and your own merit is one of the best examples of rags to riches that the free enterprise system makes available to anyone with the desire, persistence and competence to achieve it.

How can anyone in favor of basic human rights oppose that?
