“Today an extra $1.5 Trillion annually is going into the pockets of the the top 1%, while wages of working and middle class Americans have stagnated and declined by a like amount. More telling, $1.5 Trillion nearly matches our current deficit. In short, the tax loopholes and subsidies going to the top 1% is being financed by the bottom 99%. And, Guess who earns the interest?…. that’s right the private owners of the central bank; the 1/10th of 1%.” –
The middle and upper classes (the wanna-be rich, who are screwed by the top 1% while fighting for their rights not to be taxed or regulated) fared EVEN WORSE than the poor this past decade. Families with incomes four times the poverty threshold or more — $97,372 for a family of four — shrank to just 17 percent of the population, compared with 36 percent under the official measure. That’s 50% of our middle and upper middle class wiped out in order to funnel more money to the top 1% – SUCKERS! – Monday Morosity – “Hard Times Ahead” says Rajoy
Note: The above quote is to make a point that those harmed most in the last 30 years are working and middle class Americans. See: IN 3O YEARS THE RICHEST 1% INCREASED THEIR ANNUAL INCOME BY $1.5 TRILLION Regarding the quotes linked article, lets be clear, I do not believe one party is responsible for the fleecing; a point I hope to make clear below. Nor do I subscribe to the collectivist remedies those who do not understand liberty call for.
Today that extra $1.5 Trillion matches stagnant and declining middle class wages over the same period. Most telling, it nearly matches current deficits. In short, the tax loophole and subsidies going to the top 1% is being financed by the bottom 99%. And, Guess who earns the interest…. that’s right the private owners of the central bank; them.
Historically, shouldn’t it be the young and educated middle to upper middle class of society that initiates social transformation? Perhaps Prozac, propaganda, and obfuscation has so numbed us, we can do nothing but hope for a savior who will never come. And, from the most devastated quarter (the middle class), there is little outrage and even less enthusiasm to defend against the redistribution of our wealth and the destruction of our God given liberties. What has happened to us? Perhaps, as in Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia the banality of evil has taken root and it’s course of destruction must be played out.
Overcome or Be Overcome:
Sociopaths are always drawn to positions of power and control, which correlates well with our stunning lack of leadership. But, this is not a crisis of leadership. It is a societal and Constitutional crisis. For it is with our consent; a self serving, Two Party Oligarchy has taken the seat of power. The money power elite with “their” morally bankrupt Monetary System of Debt and war lies at the heart of our current wows. And again, as history has proven, they fail to see the making of their own destruction.
“Our” representatives are bought and paid for. They are minions, with benefits, and their symbiotic dependence on the money power elite dictates service to them, at our expense. At their masters bidding, they have usurped the Rule of Law and pushed the Constitution aside. They are incapable of fixing our problems. Rather than address the root causes of our problems; a failed monetary system and the dismantling of our Republic, their efforts have been blatantly redoubled.
The latest failure of the spineless and likely unconstitutional ‘super congress’ serves notice; the same destructive paradigm of the last three decades holds sway. They continue to insist their beds be feathered while they steal your mattress. And unless the people take their God Given and Legal Constitutional Powers back, there will be no way out except to be dragged down with it.
A simple scan of history should motivate the people to action. Or, like many before us, one day we may find ourselves on a heap of destruction, the stench of rotting bodies burning through our nostrils into our thick skulls, only then, realizing; it was with our consent, a small group of psychopaths put us there.
