Is the middle class doomed to fade out of existence leaving only the rich and the poor to inhabit the Earth?

Sadly yes! I watched a video called newamerica3.com just last night and I have to say it really opened my eyes as to what is happening in our country.

Maybe, if we start taxing the rich thier fair share say 1995 rate, stop trying to police the world, make sure we never fight another war who's sole purpose was to line the pockets of defense contractors and big oil, and create another "new deal" like FDR did. Protecting the poor and reestablishing the middle class should be the priority not allowing billionares to skirt thier taxes

It will get worse before it gets better.

China and India, the two most populous nations in the world, are currently experiencing their 'industrial revolutions' that the U.S. Experienced over 100 years ago. These periods in history are the fertilizer for growth of the middle class.

This burgeoning middle class in the two most populous countries now want to upgrade their lifestyles with the American currency that we have been paying for their goods and services with for decades.

For instance, China recently imported 'only' 1.5 billion bushels of U.S. Corn - good for American farmers, right? In a mere 3 years, it is estimates that China will import 12 billion bushels of U.S. Corn!

One expert said that, unless U.S: farmers can increase their production 8 FOLD, the average American will not be able to afford chicken, pork, or beef, as corn is their primary source of feed. Have a drought here and there and the prices go up from their. NOT a very bright future - laws of supply and demand.

The middle class has been shrinking for decades. The majority, percentage-wise, will fall into the 'working poor.'

Others, filled with despair over the lack of opportunity brought about by competitive forces in the marketplace (compounded by lack of education and valuable skill levels) will fall to welfare program levles and require society to support them until they upgrade their skill set and/or education. Yet, others will turn to drugs and alcohol in an attempt to dull the growing despair of a dead-end job with no actual plan for a brighter future - so they reach out for the false promise of 'Hope and Change'... and the suction of the downward-spiraling vortex grows stronger and stronger as America screams toward it's destiny upon the scrap heap of history - joining The British Empire, The Ottoman Empire, and The Roman Empire. Who was it? Nero fiddled while Rome burned?

If AMERICANS don't pull their heads out of their @$$e$ and educate themselves, and get GOD and family values back in their lives, sadly, they deserve what they get. MANY have ignorantly chosen their own destiny, for it is ONLY them - individually and collectively - that can change the course of history ... but they might have to miss an episode or two of 'American Idol,' or the like, to do so.

If that's as much as they care about their future, and the future of their children and grandchildren, then why should any of the rest of us?

The cycle is perpetuated and the beat goes on....

PS - I hate auto-correct. It makes us look like we can't spell simple words or know proper word forms... and I do not proofread such long and rambling thoughts that I free from my thoughts LOL

It's not going to change until we change and throw away that dirty diaper known as DC.

We're long over due for setting term limits for congress. It was meant to be about service, not serving their own interests.

Do you feel like you're improving?
Are you doing your job better?
Are you treating other people better?
Are you less judgmental toward others?

...look in the mirror. It starts with me and you -- the individual person.
