Logic

The Argument:

The real problem is the rich.
The rich are stupid assholes.
Stupid assholes are the real problem.
Therefore, the rich are the real problem. 


Argument Form:

P
Q
R
Therefore P (via commutation)


Corresponding Conditional (CC):

If the real problem is the rich, and if 
the rich are stupid assholes, and if the 
stupid assholes are the real problem, then
the rich are the real problem


Symbolic Expression of CC:

(P+Q+R)->P


Truth Table:

P	Q	R	P+Q+R		(P+Q+R)->P

T	T	T	  T		      T
T	F	T	  F		      T
T	F	F	  F		      T
F	T	T	  F		      T
F	T	F	  F		      T	
F	F	T	  F		      T	
F	F	F	  F		      T


Summary and Conclusion:

Since the truth table has disclosed a tautologous truth value, 
the argument is valid, as will be any substitution instance of
this argument form. 


Implication:

It would thus be logical to say:

The real problem is the rich.
The rich are stupid assholes.
Stupid assholes are the real problem.
The rich are the real problem.
