The industrial revolution and the formation of unions gave rise to the middle class.
Free trade and unbridled capitalism will destroy the middle class.
One reason why the middle class developed is because companies were forced to pay a liveable wage. A lack of skilled workers and collective bargaining through unions led to higher wages and benefits.
What happens when there is a surplus of labor, and companies can have their products built by cheap overseas labor? Do you really think the middle class will continue to exist?
Where do we lay the blame?
Do we blame the democrats? Do we blame the republicans? Both parties deserve equal blame for the economic situation the U.S. is in.
bill clinton promised not to sign NAFTA. What did the crawfish do after being elected? He signed NAFTA.
What kind of real change has obama brought to the nation? Mandated everyone purchase healthcare, signed into law that U.S. citizen can be held without due process. Which is nothing new. franklin roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 that allowed Japanese-Americans to be held without due process.
obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act.
franklin roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066.
Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong and Vladimir Lenin were probably proud to see the U.S. adopt such socialist and communist ideas as detaining U.S. citizens without due process. After all, isn’t that what the nazis did to the Jews in world War II? Didn’t the nazis round up the Jews like cattle and send them to the camps?
Stalin and Hitler followed through with their plans. obama is being cut off at the pass by the U.S. supreme court.
Lets not forget the republicans and their crimes against humanity, such as using torture.
William Howard Taft (a republican) introduced the income tax. Everytime you pay your property tax or income tax, you can thank the piece of trash william howard taft.
What president in the past 50 years has not committed some kind of crime against humanity? What U.S. president in the past 100 years has not committed some kind of crime against humanity?
President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 6102 which forbid the hoarding of Gold Coin, Gold Bullion, and Gold Certificates. In other words, fdr stripped long term wealth from the U.S. population and handed it over to the banks.
Why are the major two parties a viable option?
Why does anyone vote for the democrat party? Why has anyone voted for the democrat party for the past 100 years?
After that piece of trash taft introduced the income tax, why has anyone voted for the republicans?
People vote for the same two parties over and over because they are afraid of real change.
If you want real change, vote like it
This means you vote for a political party besides the democrats and republicans.
Personally, I vote straight line Libertarian Party. After bill clinton did a flip-flop on nafta, I knew that regardless of what political party we voted into office, we would never have real change.
The only solution is to kick both parties out and start over.
How many times has the Libertarian Party raised your taxes? How many times has the v voted to take your rights away? How many times has the Libertarian Party voted to detain U.S. citizens without due process?
If you want the middle class to die, keep voting for the two major parties. Until you vote for someone besides the democrats or the republicans, you will never have real change.
