If all of the rich gave to all of the poor and their roles in life were reversed, those that were now rich (formerly poor) would do everything in their power to maintain and build upon their wealth - just like the rich do now and have always done.A few of the rich are "family rich" and didn't have to work very hard (if at all) to get that way. Or work hard to keep being rich. The rest have been personal success stories, making something seemingly out of nothing, providing goods and services used by those who need such products and/or servies.
If everybody in the US was ordered to pool their combined assets and the net worth was divided among the working-age population (18 years and older) so that we were all equal, those who abhor accepting mediocrity would try and find a way to better themselves and get ahead of the pack while those with little or no motivation would wallow in said mediocrity, squander what assets they received in the distribution and then openly pine for the assets of their neighbors and friends and demand that liberal politicians restore fairness.
That being said, if you've got the time and energy to protest because you don't have a job at all, or don't have a steady job, or don't have a high-paying job, then you've certainly got enough time and energy to devote your efforts to bettering yourself, your job situation and your income instead of whining about how you have been victimized by society.
