The Middle Class In America Is Being Wiped Out – Here Are 60 Facts That Prove It

view;_ylt=A2KJkIW5OidP_TYALu

The middle class in the United States is being systematically destroyed, and nobody is doing much of anything to stop it.  Our incomes are shrinking, our share of the income pie is at an all-time low, our jobs are being sent overseas, debt burdens have soared to unprecedented heights and millions of formerly middle class Americans have fallen into poverty.  America once had the largest and most vibrant middle class that the world has ever seen, but now it is rapidly being shredded.  Unfortunately, this is particularly true for younger Americans.  Today, families that have a head of household that is under the age of 30 have a poverty rate of 37 percent.  That is astounding.  The truth is that there are not enough decent jobs for the hordes of young people that are entering the marketplace each year.  Once upon a time, a college degree was just about a guaranteed ticket to the middle class, but in 2011 more than half of all college graduates under the age of 25 were either unemployed or underemployed.  Sadly, statistics tell us that the younger you are, the less likely you are to have a chance to live “the American Dream”.  Nearly half the country already lives in a household that receives direct financial assistance from the federal government, and that percentage grows with each passing day.  We are rapidly being transformed from a country of middle class citizens into a country of impoverished government dependents.  If dramatic changes are not made, the middle class in America will continue to decline every single year.  What would our society look like if the middle class disappeared entirely at some point?

The following are 60 facts that prove that the middle class in America is being wiped out…

Caring for the Poor and Middle Class

It amazes me that liberals stand by the argument that they are for the working class and the poor.  Seems to be that you aren’t helping the working class or the poor when you drive jobs away through high taxes and regulations, or when they keep stores like Walmart away, and place huge taxes on cigarettes and alcohol knowing full well the poor will still buy them.  How exactly does outlawing bags or “encouraging” people to buy new vehicles (keeping them in debt) help?  How does massive unchecked illegal immigration help?

How exactly do liberal policies help?

Every child should go to college?  Why?  So they can have the joy of working at McDonald’s with a mountain of debt they can neither repay or get out from under?  Are there that many jobs out there?  I realize they’re saving the word “depression” for a Republican President, but where are the jobs?  Forget the degree, just jobs?  Are they doing anyone any favors?

Somehow creating a mountain of debt by giving trillions of dollars away helps the poor and working class?  That money didn’t go to the poor and working class.  It didn’t create jobs.  It went to the same people the liberals shout that they are protecting us from, the banks, big business, and Wall Street.  No wonder Pelosi is winking at Occupy Wall Street.  The jokes on them!

Restricting the American farmer, taking away water rights and cutting off land use, thus contributing to higher food costs, somehow benefits Americans?  Somehow we have to have open borders to keep farm labor costs down, but the flip side to that is they do everything else to inflate prices then blame everyone else for the high prices.

Sitting on vast resources that we can’t touch, resources of oil and natural gas, inflating the cost of everything across the board, forcing people to choose between filling the tank or paying the mortgage, forcing parents out of the home for greater and greater periods and taking away the time that should be spent as family somehow benefits the people?

And the children, how do these policies help the children?  We all know the claim that liberals protect the children, but how exactly does bankrupting our children’s future while “radically transforming America” help the children?  Is that what they think they’re doing when they outlaw prayer from the public schools (unless it’s Muslim; we don’t want to offend)?

Are they teaching the children to think critically, to recognize the keys to success individually and collectively, to really understand how the world works, or are the teaching them that it is all owed to them?  The key to success as they teach it is not based on merit, but on the color of your skin, or at least the group you claim, just ask Ms. Warren.  Ask the entrance board for Annapolis or West Point.  Those who excel apart from the prescribed box are “evil”, unless it’s a Hollywood celebrity or some other train wreak that we’ve traded real heroes for.  That’s progressive!

Yes, the liberals are looking out for the poor and the middle class, but few of us can afford such love and devotion.

I know, how racist of me!
