The Stripping of America’s Wealth
If you are like the average American, you have seen your income and standard of living decline sharply in the past 10 years. In fact, you probably know personally many people who have seen their lives decline not just over the past 10 years but ever since the 80s.
Some of American’s money is going over seas through our insane trade policies, but the vast majority of our country’s wealth is being redistributed to the 400 wealthiest families in the country. We are being stripped of our wealth to feed the billionaires.
Yet we still grumble and bicker between ourselves. We blame each other. It’s the union workers, it’s the teachers, it’s the people with pensions, it’s the people on unemployment, welfare, food stamps. It’s the liberals or the Democrats or the Conservatives or the Libertarians …
Our news media, owned by the 1% just encourage it and refuse to explain what is really happening.
At the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Benjamin Franklin said:
We must, indeed, all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.
Well, if we all bicker between ourselves and blame each other then, rather than coming together regardless of our differences, we will surely all starve separately while the rich continue to party and dance on our graves.
