SMOKE AND MIRRORS: Numerous Facts Prove U.S. is Sinking in Poverty

28 percent of all Americans do not have a single cent of savings in case of emergency

Smoke and Mirrors: Numerous Facts Prove US is Sinking in Poverty

Many people are still viewing the United States as a country where most of the population lives in prosperity. However, “The Economic Collapse Blog” released a number of facts that prove that the economic situation in United States is far from ideal.

Many people want to go to America in search of better life and to fulfill their dreams. However, the United States that was once seen as a stronghold of freedom and numerous opportunities has turned into a place where financial elites run the show and turn the country into their personal private army, Marco Maier wrote in Contra Magazine.

The money is being invested into the military apparatus and the intelligence services so that a small upper class can advance its international business. The majority of the population, however, is increasingly sinking in misery, the journalist argued.

Maier referred to “The Economic Collapse Blog” to prove his point of view and cited a number of facts that demonstrate the poor economic situation in the United States.

Five of the facts (though there are many more of them) are listed below:

Fact 1:

A recent study revealed that 40 percent of Americans have $ 500 or less in savings.

Fact 2:

Another study found out that 28 percent of all Americans do not have a single cent of savings in case of emergency.

Fact 3:

Nearly 10 million US households don’t even have a bank account. That is one million more compared to 2009.

Fact 4:

Since the last recession, the number of homeless families rose by 23 percent in Washington DC which used to be one of the richest regions in the country.

Fact 5:

The number of Americans living in poverty rose in the last four years to 6 million people.

According to Maier, the US economic conditions are deteriorating, with more and more people likely to live in poverty in the future. Do Europeans really want to closely cooperate with the country where a few billionaires continue to grip money, while their “private army” in the form of the US Armed Forces is inflicting chaos worldwide? the journalist asked.

    I would say this is right on the mark. Seems like everyone is making well under $12 an hour nowadays, everybody. Even the suckers with BA’s and MA’s can’t find decent jobs.

    Most educated people are underpaid and under employed, the new wave of the future. Isn’t equality wonderful?

    I remember in 2010 there was people with PhD’s all the way from Washington, DC begging for my job, and it had NO benefits and paid just a hair more than minimum wage. The worst isn’t over folks . . . .

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.

If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists, and that means a whole different way of getting along.
