    Social mobility, down. Unemployment high. Shrinking middle class, growing impoverished class. The countries wealth held predominantly by a small percent. It's the formula of dissent. Now you've got people talking about how the poor don't give enough and take too much.


    Im honestly not sure what we as a nation can do to restore our economic balance......

    Well, we can either be like Greece, or roll it back and be more like America before the Progressives took control of our institutions and systems.

    Balance does not nor has it ever come from the poor receiving handouts. It always came and will continue to come from hard work and determination.

    Safety net for those in dire need and fuck everyone else

    My greatest concern is increasing upward mobility and restoring a strong middle class. We arent 1st or second, or even 5th in that area. If you're born poor in the US, you will most likely die poor and your children will stay poor. It's the loss of the American dream.

    If you are poor in america you are likely considered rich in most other countries.

    Seriously, give this nonsense a rest. And it IS nonsense. Most of the poor in other countries are lucky to just have a roof over their heads let alone all the luxuries our poor have and are GIVEN

    Don't want to be poor anymore? Get a job. Not enough? Get two or goto trade school when you aren't working.

    Lazy fucks

    Gramps, you can't compare poor in the US to poor in say Africa. No the poor aren't dying in he streets, but they are a growing number while the middle class shrinks more and more.

    Upward mobility is the American dream, the notion that through hard work you can rise above the station of your parents. We are failing in that area while other nation pass us by. That is not nonsense.

    How about you concentrate on equal opportunity and not equal results. You could give every adult in the country $100.000.00, in 6 months more than half will be broke and complaining about it. We are all the sum of our own decisions.

    The middle class is shrinking because the economy is shit.
    It will bounce back like IT ALWAYS DOES
    If you get left behind its your own fault.

    I never mentioned equal results.

    I'm talking about the loss of the middle class, which has resulted in higher number of impoverished Americans, and the loss of upward mobility, which is essential to a strong economy.
