We do not really understand where we are financially. Most of us think of us as middle class but it isn’t true or we are hanging in there by our fingertips. Are we lazy and want to be taken care of? No. But the fact is that the 1 % that every politician in the country talks about also has 40% of the country’s wealth. Which puts the poor below the poverty line. This is not democracy and it is more like Europe’s old feudal system. So the poor are poorer and the Republicans have no compassion or empathy. So who cares? The rich don’t care about anyone else. Actually, I will go so far as to say that the rich look upon the poor as kings have looked at peasants. When we won the Revolutionary War and the Constitution was written for a society where wealth was more equally divided. Something to think about.
