Yes, Donald Trump has been elected against all odds. However, the longest odds that Trump will face have nothing to do with political opponents. The fact of the matter is that he is inheriting an America that is damaged and disfigured beyond all recognition. The America that I know has been raped, pillaged and plundered to the point where the nation is on life-support.
To push back the globalist occupation forces, Trump will need the support and affirmative contributions of good portion of the country. I am not sure that enough of the country is aware enough, emotionally intact enough and believe that our actions can make a difference, enough, to effect positive change. Time will tell on this point, but the early returns are not promising.
In today’s America, only 97 million Americans from a population of nearly 200 million working age citizens, actually have a full-time job. That means that every full-time worker is supporting two people in addition to themselves and they all are not our children.
Trump is assuming control of a government where it so infested with those beholding to absolute communist ideals and the dedication to living under Sharia Law, that his federal government has subversive influences in it from top to bottom.
The country as a whole is so beat down, that I am not sure if this country has the physical capacity to rally around Trump. In psychology, we call this “learned helplessness” where people become conditioned that their indivdual actions don’t make any difference.
The EBT crowd is being conditioned to depend on the government as if it were their third parent. Therefore, we cannot count on 50 million Americans to push for reforms. After all, who is going to work for themselves?
A Broke and Destitute Nation
By many estimations, America has been in very severe decline for at least 30 years. From 1985 to 2015, let’s take a look at what’s happened with salaries and wages in America.
Today, the average American is making just over $56,000 dollars per year, but that does not include the perspective that 70% of America is making less than $30,000 per year. In 1985, Americans made just over $48,000 per year. That is a $7,000 raise in 30 years, or, $250 raise per year. But wait a moment, we did not figure inflation. Please remember that the government does not count food or the price of gas in their calculations as if we don’t have to eat or drive to work.
The government tells us that inflation have averaged 5% per year since WW II. When we figure the impact that inflation has had on real wages, a person making $50,000 in 1985 would have to make $125,000 in 2015 to break even. And these figures are not even compounded which they should be. However, this does not include being in a higher tax bracket as a result of trying to keep up with inflation.
I hear some economists talk about the 20/20 effect. Which means that as compared to 30 years ago, Americans, as a whole, are working for 20% less and are actually working 20% longer. No wonder so many of our children are snowflakes. They have had fewer examples in the home to teach them how to be tough and how be resilient in the face of challenges.
