Classic oversimplification. The US is a democratic republic

with a capitalist/socialist hybrid system. The first-tier nations earlier mentioned decided democratically, in free elections, that they would invest more in equality for all their citizens.
Those repressive countries you mentioned aren't known for free elections, are they? They have no histories of democratic rule.

Consider Germany and its economy, Victor. Do you not see that country's economic success, after being torn apart (understandably) by your former country, has been predicated on providing top-notch free education and services to all? Second, you do realize the US lags FAR behind these other top countries in upward mobility? Genius isn't restricted by zip code. It is a very rare thing that is as likely to spring up among the poorest as it is amongst the rich. Need I remind you, there are a lot more poor...
And can you please, please leave out the personal insults? We all enjoy good discussions, but personalized demonizing subverts them.
