We are told that the middle class has lost 40 percent of its wealth. We are told that the answer to our economic recovery is for businesses to begin to hire more folks both small businesses and big businesses. Our recovery will not come from the government. In fact, our government has been forced to eliminate some jobs already and will reduce its size after the next election, too. Then business will have barriers removed and be able to expand our economy.
The problem is not regulation and large government. The problem is and has been the twisted deception fed to us by politicians working to have the high class continue to reap fortunes while those of us in lower classes continue to suffer from not earning enough to prosper ourselves.
Some businesses are owned by middle-class people. But the successful owners quickly become members of the relative high class of any one region.
Be not deceived that our federal candidates are working for members of the middle and lower classes. They work to hold the power to help those successful people who acquire fortunes while continuing to keep the world labor pool in place so that the commodity of labor is paid as little as possible.
Will your candidate fight to give the middle- and lower-class workers here in the north country their fair share of profit without any labor unions?
Our median income is a little over $35,000. Think who belongs to the high class around here and whom they will support. In fact, they might make up the numbers who will bring victory to a candidate even though greatly outnumbered by the rest. It is only natural that those lower classes would feel that they/we lack any political power.
And that is why all of you need to vote. Dont let the high class be the only voice heard! Demand of our federal, state and local candidates the prosperity they promise for the middle and lower classes! Make them explain the details of how this is going to happen! Dont let them avoid this answer. Remember, they work for you.
It bothers me that almost all the elected officials in our federal government are members of the high class of where theyre from. Do we really have a representative government? Should we all assume that the best elected official is a member of the high class? Are the rest just too stupid to serve?
