The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later ...
Do you ever feel like you're being overwhelmed by events…that our country is spiraling out of control and that mainstream folks no longer have a say-so in their private affairs?
Well it is true. The American Dream is being slowly strangled out of existence.
I think that most of us have that feeling . The single mom who's juggling work, and parenting and trying to make ends meet. Or the retiree who's having trouble keeping up with ever spiraling food or medical costs. The college grad who is forced to move back in with mom and dad because no decent jobs can be found. Imagine starting your adult life already in debt to an average tune of $30,000 or more?
The middle class in America is dying. It is estimated that America has lost 10% of its Middle Class and 40% of its purchasing power since 2008 as well. In 2008, 53 percent of all Americans considered themselves to be “middle class”. But by 2014, only 44 percent of all Americans still considered themselves to be “middle class”.
When you take a look at our young people, the numbers become even more pronounced. In 2008, 25 percent of all Americans in the 18 to 29-year-old age bracket considered themselves to be “lower class”. But in 2014, an astounding 49 percent of all Americans in that age range considered themselves to be “lower class”.
Incomes are stagnating, but the cost of living just continues to rise steadily. This is especially true of basic things that we all purchase such as food. As I wrote about earlier this year, the price of ground beef in the United States has doubled since the last recession.
We live a frugal life. No credit cards. No mortgages. No loans or car payments. However, the cost of government mandated insurances and our government managed water system exceeds the cost of my annual college tuition payments and that doesn’t even include tax payments!
In a healthy economy, lots of new businesses are created and now many are being forced to shut down. But for each of the past six years, more businesses have closed in the United States than have opened. Prior to 2008, this had never happened before in all of U.S. history. Government regulation and red tape is choking the life blood out of entrepreneurism and new job creation…but the bureaucrats don’t care as long as their job and gold plated perks are safe.
The United States has dropped to 13th place in terms of economic freedom and entrepreneurial activity – something unheard of 30 years ago when we led the world in free enterprise.
What will government parasites do when there aren’t enough worker drones left to support them?
Most of us feel powerless against well entrenched political elite and their armies of bureaucrats which are destroying the American dream. Most of us simply want the government to stop interfering in our lives, to just leave us alone, to stop stealing so much of our hard earned money.
The social contract that once existed between corporate America has evaporated and no longer is there any sense of civic duty among so-called civil servants to actually serve the people. There are few consumer advocates such as Ralph Nader and his famous ‘Nader’s Raider’s” fighting for your rights anymore [perhaps Elizabeth Warren]…for all intents and purposes, you are on your own!
Politicians have been stealing more than 100 million dollars an hour from future generations of Americans since Barack Obama entered the White House.
The destruction of taxation and inflation that are destroying this nation, your finances and that of your children is no accident. The average American has been the target of an elaborate con game losing billions of dollars in this sting to what I call the Washington-Wall Street Cartel. While the political elite live high off insider trading and political favors, you have been fleeced and swindled.
In a frenzy of insatiable greed, we have been taking trillions of dollars that belong to our children and our grandchildren and spending it ourselves. When you break it down, it comes to more than 100 million dollars every single hour of every single day. This is a crime of unimaginable proportions, and if we lived in a just society a whole bunch of our “top politicians” would [should] be going to prison for this.
You have two choices…continue being a plantation slave, going along with the program OR do something to improve your future and the future of your children!
