    or Mark Ruffalo claimed on Twitter Sunday that it’s “time for an economic revolution,” asserting that “Capitalism today is failing us, killing us, and robbing from our children’s future.”

    A vocal anti-Trump crusader, Bernie Sanders supporter and climate change alarmist, the “Avengers” star is just one of a slew of Hollywood celebs, musicians and career politicians to decry capitalism as an evil system that only benefits the elite few.

    Hilariously, he’s also one of the many hypocrites.

    While he may slam capitalism for “failing” Americans, Ruffalo has certainly benefitted from the free market himself, and by no small amount. The actor has a net worth of roughly $30 million, which he made by appearing in numerous movies and commercials, as well as directing several productions.
    You first.

    No, assholes like that think they're NOT included.

    They get to keep all their stuff while the State takes everything from the rest of us; like how the Castro family got to be the only ones to own land in Cuba.

    Capitalism hasn't failed anyone. Some people have failed at capitalism.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
    Psalm 55:22

    What's this "capitalism is failing us" Mark? You seem to be doing VERY well because of capitalism. How much has playing Bruce Banner in The Avengers and sequels made you? Millions? Yeah, go peddle your Male Bovine Excrement somewhere else and keep doing what's made you rich. That being pretending to be someone you're not.

    They don't think that middle class people will be negatively affected, either. They think that only the rich will have to sacrifice for the common good, not anyone else. And, they don't think they are rich.
