    The American middle class is an endangered species. It is being squeezed to death. Middle class Americans are being pushed against their will into the Lower Class. Such is the nature of all the trends in the American economy over many years, not just a consequence of the current Great Recession. This is happening as the rich and powerful Upper Class continues to enjoy their incredible wealth.

    It sure seemed to be the goal of the republican party over the last couple of decades.

    There is one thing we need to remember, the Middle Class still votes. The question is, will they realize who the threat is in time before they lose that ability to save themselves.

    Actually I'd say it's the goal of every career politician, lobbyist, special interest group, beltway sycophant and other self appointed 'courtier' trying to populate the halls of power.

    This is why you need a competency exam, term limits, anti-gerrymandering laws and direct local support of all congressmen.

    Yep, it's the corporatists. The only thing that matters in this country anymore is a privileged few being singled out to profit and hoard wealth. That is EXACTLY what happened to the middle class. They were worked to death without receiving their true earned compensation in return. They have nothing left to give. It's hard to fight those that have all the money and power...

    I agree Fitz. The problem is that the people keep electing these Clowns.
