A war on the middle class is the true nature of what is occurring in the United States . Briefly, lets examine the facts. Working Americans are subjected to higher prices, out of control fuel costs, exorbitant health care costs, stagnant wages, less employment opportunity, and higher taxes. Why is that?
Government regulation and interference in the economy has destroyed innovation, expansion and capital investment in new business. The real victims, the ones paying for out of control immigration, welfare, millions of non-disabled on disability, 3 years of unemployment benefits and a host of other governmental programs are the working class.
The working class is being squeezed out of existence to the point that there will come a time that those earning a living will no longer see that as a net plus. They will quit. Many already have quit which is why the unemployed and not looking for work group is at a all time high. As more quit there will be no one to support all the benefits and the system will collapse.
The value of those who work has been diminished. Their contributions ignored as the media props up policies that move us toward a condition much like that of the Soviet Union in 1989. No one saw a reason to work for a government that did not let them keep any of the products of their labor and that rewarded poor effort as much as exceptional effort. They had all become part of a collective that produced nothing. With no production there was nothing to pay for government so it collapsed.
We are on that path today. Allowing uncontrolled immigration by non- producing individuals, by cutting off energy production at the knees, by forcing prices higher through regulation and fiscal policy our government is trying to recreate the collective. It is far down that path.
It may take more than votes to reverse this ship. Our current leadership is determined to purposely drive the ship onto the rocks. It wants to destroy the family, the middle class, and all those that would think for themselves and live free.
I do not know how to stop the train. Few of our leaders are willing to challenge the destruction of our constitution by the failure of the executive to uphold the law. As the middle class gets squeezed and can no longer survive there will be unrest. Murrieta, CA was a start but mild as to the way it will be if the ship continues on its current course.
