The United States is Not Wealthy, it is Poor and Getting Worse

Each living generation have been told that America is the wealthiest country in the world, and it got that way through God’s blessing of prosperity. Neither is true if pondered against reality. When people speak of America’s wealth, they speak of individual wealthy people, not the country itself.

The United States is Not Wealthy, it is Poor and Getting Worse

Each living generation have been told that America is the wealthiest country in the world, and it got that way through God’s blessing of prosperity. Neither is true if pondered against reality. When people speak of America’s wealth, they speak of individual wealthy people, not the country itself.

Like parents that constantly claim lack of disposable income (we cannot afford it), the United States seem to never have the financial means to take care of its citizens. We hear over and over from politicians, news anchors, and economic analyst that if America wants something new, the question, “how will it get paid for?” or “Who’s going to pay for this or that?”

The fact of the matter is the United States government actually does not have disposable income and what money they do have is tied up in debt or projects geared toward private investments. America owes more money than they bring in and is heavily invested in private enterprises such as defense spending to contractors.

The majority of the income they do have goes directly to military spending and government administration, so politicians can get paid. There is little to no money set aside for the actual country infrastructure, research or development, education, environmental needs such as clean water and food, or basic care for the citizens (healthcare, housing, transportation or retirement). All the latter safety nets are being significantly reduced.

A 20-year projection suggest that the United States will become a third-world country and poverty, starvation, and sickness will be more wide-spread around the country’s so-called fruited plains. Already there are rural towns and major cities that have become wastelands of abandoned factories, failing schools, and food deserts.

America does not spend its money on its citizens, it sets aside its money for the wealthy, who are draining the country of every dime it earns.
