This Is How Working Families Are Being Destroyed By This Economy

How can we live the American Dream when the deck is stacked against us? For decades, our politicians stood idly by as millions of good-paying jobs were shipped overseas, our economic infrastructure was completely dismantled and multitudes of businesses were choked to death, leaving our population mostly with low-paid positions, a shrinking purchasing power, and rising living expenses. Today, we are definitely reaping the consequences. According to a new survey, almost 1 in 2 Americans are struggling financially right now, which means that about half the country is flat broke, and things are set to get even more precarious for working families as we enter the last few months of the year.
Working families in America are being destroyed by this crazy economy. Households are getting squeezed by a giant pile of expensive bills that only get higher and higher, and wages are not keeping pace with rising prices. People are seeing the value of their money go down while the cost of living continues to go up. That is why the levels of economic suffering are simply off the charts at this point, with almost 1 in 2 Americans saying that they’re having major difficulties making ends meet financially amid soaring food and gas bills, new research from Monmouth University shows.
More than 42% of the nation’s workers admitted they are under financial pressure, pointing to inflation as their biggest concern, the survey found. The figure is the highest recorded by the university since it started polling people five years ago. At the same time, over half of the nation – or 51 percent of all American workers – make less than $30,000 a year. With so many expenses adding up and so little money, most people don’t have a financial safety net to rely on. In fact, a new YouGov survey says that 49 percent of all Americans could not afford an unexpected $400 emergency expense without borrowing the money from somewhere or selling something.
Considering all of these factors, there’s no wonder why so many hard-working families are facing such great financial hardship. Despite working harder than ever, Americans’ sense of financial security is diminishing. Given that we have to spend a larger share of our salaries each month, it is getting harder to save money and build a financial cushion to fall back on. Having emergency savings is key to avoiding taking on more debt. But unfortunately, roughly 40% of consumers cannot put any money at all into savings, according to a recent analysis of household financial health and readiness by the American Consumer Credit Counseling, while about 19% said they had to reduce their savings rate.
Sadly, this is about as good as things are going to get. A new economic downturn is on our doorsteps, and layoff announcements at major firms are running 24 percent higher this year than they were last year. The America that most of us grew up in is dying, and what we have seen so far is just the beginning of its collapse. Our leaders will continue with business as usual. They will just keep doing the same things over and over again, and foolishly expecting different results. Whatever they are doing to “fix” things is not going to work, and that’s crystal clear to everyone by now. 
We must start valuing working families again, and that means giving them opportunities to improve their financial situations and encouraging the creation of good-paying jobs. Unfortunately, we have already entered the early stages of the next great economic crisis, and so things are going to get a whole lot worse for the working class before there is any chance of them getting better.

  1. Unless we as a nation turn back to the Lord God Almighty, we are on a one way ticket to hell… Now for the truth… of why the US is headed on a path of destruction…

    What is going on??? the US has broken her covenant with God…the covenant that George Washington made with Almighty God, the creator of heaven and earth and all it contains…and since the US has broken her oath of following ALL of God's ways…the Lord God has no choice except to bring judgment upon the US….read below for the words of President Washington…a most humble man…

    now buckle up and get strapped in tight for the party has just begun…you wanted debauchery, you wanted sin upon sin upon sin…well now the Lord has come to repay for the sins of the US and forsaking Him…Psalm 9:17

    George Washington’s Covenant with God

    April 30, 1789
    Federal Hall
    New York City

    The debate was over. The arguments had been presented. The federalists supported this new document because they believed it was necessary for this young nation to prosper. On the other hand, the anti-federalists feared that the new constitution gave to much power to the federal government. Would states lose their autonomy once this new document was ratified? After four grueling months of debate the new constitution was ratified and the states had to decide who would be their first president.

    George Washington was chosen unanimously as the new nation’s first president without a single dissenting vote. Now once again, after wishing to end his life of service to his country and retire back to his farm, Washington again answer’s the call to serve his country. For George Washington was truly a man who did not seek power. In fact, he detested power. He sought personal honor. But he never sought accolades. He believed in service to his country.

    It was time for George Washington to go to the new nation’s capital, which was in New York, and accept another responsibility and trust that was bestowed upon him. For George Washington was truly a man whom was trusted by the people of the United States. For the thirteen states would have never accepted the new constitution if Washington had not given it his seal of approval.

    The young nation feared a strong central government. They feared the new Constitution would create a government that would trample on their rights. They feared another monarchy. For what good was the revolution if a new monarchy at home would replace the old monarchy abroad?

    The thirteen states were apprehensive at first in ratifying this new Constitution. And there was only one man whom could put their minds at ease. That man was George Washington. The only man whom they would entrust with this new power.

    Washington gave the very first presidential oath and the very first inaugural address. On that cool, April Day in New York City Washington also followed in the footsteps of the Biblical heroes of old making a covenant with God. David. Solomon. Josiah.

    God honors covenants. He would always keep His end of the bargain. George Washington knew that.
    The question is would the United States of America keep hers?

    Robert Livingston administered the very first presidential oath of office of this new nation. He was New York’s state Chancellor.

    Washington opened the Bible at random to Genesis 49. Washington placed his left hand upon the open Bible. Washington raised his right hand. Washington then proceeded to take the following oath:

    “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. So help me God.”

    Washington then bent over and in an act of reverence for His God whom saved him so many times before, he kissed the Bible.

    Chancellor Livingston proclaimed, “It is done!” Livingston then turned to those who were assembled as eyewitnesses to history and shouted, “Long live George Washington – the first President of the United States!”

    George Washington then went inside Federal Hall to the Senate Chamber and delivered the first ever Inaugural Address. Washington opened his address with prayer:

    “It would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official Act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the Universe, who presides in the Councils of Nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that his benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the People of the United States, a Government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes.”

    Washington continued:

    “No People can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conducts the Affairs of men more than the People of the United States. Every step, by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation, seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency. And in the important revolution just accomplished in the system of their United Government, the tranquil deliberations and voluntary consent of so many distinct communities, from which the event has resulted, cannot be compared with the means by which most Governments have been established, without some return of pious gratitude along with an humble anticipation of the future blessings which the past seem to presage. These reflections, arising out of the present crisis, have forced themselves too strongly on my mind to be suppressed. You will join with me I trust in thinking, that there are none under the influence of which, the proceedings of a new and free Government can more auspiciously commence.”

    Then Washington made a covenant with the God of the universe saying:

    “Since we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven, can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained: And since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.”

    In his address Washington made it clear that no nation can expect to be blessed by God (propitious smiles of Heaven) if they turn away from Him. (disregards the eternal rules of order and right) If a nation forgets God she will lose the blessing that God has given her.
    Representing the nation, Washington made a promise that the United States of America would follow God. If she ever broke her promise then she would lose God’s blessing and protection. God would keep His promise. He always kept His promises. Only one question remained:

    Would the United States of America keep hers?

    Today, if we are honest, truly honest with ourselves, we should be willing to admit to the heavens above we have forsaken God as a Nation that was once blessed by the Almighty God. And the Lord God Almighty has no choice but to forsake us as the United States of America by the covenant made to the Lord by General Washington, The President and leader of the United States.

    George Washington may be gone…but the covenant still stands in the eyes of God for a covenant can only end when one of the parties dies, for George was our representative and placed the US under the oath of the covenant …and the US seems to be on her death bed….

    Job 1:21
    New American Standard Bible

    21 He said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
    And naked I shall return there.
    The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away.
    Blessed be the name of the Lord.”

    Direct from the word of God…

    Acts 17:26 and He made from one man, every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined [their] appointed times, and the boundaries of their habitation.

    Job 12:23 "He makes the nations great, then destroys them; He enlarges the nations, then leads them away.

    Are we something to God?…God needs nothing from us…for these words in Isaiah speaks this truth.

    Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, He taketh up the isles as a very little thing. And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering. All nations before Him are as nothing ; and they are counted to Him less than nothing, and vanity. To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto Him? (Isa 40:15-18).

    How vastly different is the God of Scripture from the “god” of the average pulpit! The modern day Pharisee (pastor) has turned the Lord God into a genie in the bottle to stroke at their will…yet God is stroking the world with His wrath and indignation.

    May the Lord in His wrath, show us mercy.

  2. We have no hope unless we get money out of our politics. These billionaires DO NOT have any business making decisions on what is best for the rest of the population. THERE IS NO TRUST IN GOVERNMENT. Our doctors and and scientists need to be protected to restore our faith . People have an obligation to fight for future generations.

  3. I turned away from a wife and reproducing years ago I am not hurting yet financially hanging in there and have a OFF the GRID situation going for myself but the people that reproduced my God they much be in much pain these days

  4. Why don't most of you get off your asses n stop feeding off my taxes n government assistance!!!!??????? Hmmmmmm!!!!???? You don't Wana take that McDonald's job paying 17 Dollars n hour as a cashier!??? Oooh that's beneath you!??? Or that janitorial job paying 20 n hour!!!!???? That's the problem!!!!!! You so called woke n lazy ass ppls complain to much there's plenty jobs out here for now!!!!!

  5. There is a despotic power that has been hell bent on the destruction of Protestant America and its Constitutional Republic for quite some time. They ruled Europe during the middle ages with an iron fist, but lost their civil power back on February 10, 1798 when General Berthier captured and imprisoned their leader. They have been quietly working behind the scenes to get that power back. They want a one world government/religion with their current leader at the head of it all. They also want a National Sunday Law as a day of rest for the land to lower carbon emissions and supposedly save the planet. But the Bible says the 7th day is the Sabbath of rest from our physical labors. That's the coming conflict before Jesus returns… God's Sabbath vs. the Pope's Sunday. Choose wisely.
