I would also have to agree to a point about the sensationalism by the media, but I continue to see that people will not look at the real culprit for
most economy based problems within the U.S.
'The Federal Reserve System' The illegal taxing of americans on their wages, which falls neither under apportioned or unapportioned taxation, but
is a combination of the two.
Now in Canada I do not know your laws, but here, if everyone had that 27-38% wage tax back in their pockets every week or month and not being
robbed, that money would be dumped back into the local economies fueling growth and prosperity. The money most people are robbed of only goes to pay
the interest on the money we let the reserve system print for us at interest. ..... Sorry for the lesson here, I do not want to offend anyone here,
because i know most of you pay wage taxes every week and feel you have to, but you do not, you are being robbed and if this system was shut down and
the gold standard was returned we would all be much better off by having paper which is backed by real money(gold) and not a credit backed system,
which will forever be the cause for inflation (the printing of too much money)
That being said... The standard of living in america, compared to those of our grandparents ( I am 41), we would need to live to be roughly 200 years
old, to experience the rise, in standard of living.
Sensationalism, yes to a point, but mainly the standard of living here in the U.S has fallen so much is because it's people are not willing to
stand up and truly make change... the overwhelming majority continue to be hypnotized by the illusion that America is a Democratic Nation by free
election. It doesn't matter who we elect, the same people continue to make our National and international policies. (the Federal reserve bank, the
World bank and the international monetary fund)
