President Obama and his likeminded lackeys like to drone on about owing the “little people.” How America with its one-percenters is so big and bad, and how we need to spread the wealth.
Except that, they don’t mean to spread the collective wealth, and they certainly don’t mean to spread their own wealth. They mean to spread your wealth.
You see, there’s a reason why most of the one-percenters are one-percenters these days. And it has very little to do with the American Dream anymore. Instead, it has to do with government connections, whether in the form of lobbyists or more direct relationships with politicians.
That’s something the American middle class doesn’t have, and so we’re the group that ends up paying the price of all this government generosity. We work hard, we don’t take handouts, we give up more than our fair share every year in taxes… and this is how we’re repaid:
As the Washington Times reports, “Wages of America’s middle class have dropped below 1970s’ levels as immigration has surged 325 percent, according to a new congressional report that questions claims that native Americans are economically helped by greater immigration.”
How in the world that original claim came to be, I have no idea; and frankly, I don’t care. It sounds like one more line in a badly written script we hear from the liberal agenda all the time. Like we’re too stupid to see the obvious truth.
And the obvious truth is that immigrants take jobs from citizens.
Now in some cases, that’s deserved. If a South African genius edges out an American genius for some genius job because he or she’s a better fit for some genius company, then tough luck. There are no guarantees in life anyway. Or if an India-Indian immigrant makes a better impression during the interview process than his or her American counterparts, then so be it.
However, when we allow waves of immigrants into the country – whether legal or illegal – that unjustly sets citizens back. And let’s face it, it’s mostly going to be middle-class citizens who suffer for it considering that most of the jobs available to the average immigrant are in the lower middle-class range.
Meanwhile, the one-percenters and five-percenters and 10-percenters who are constantly crying about how much more we need to give to the poor? They’re dodging and ducking and cheating on their taxes to keep every bit of money they can in their own hands for their own purposes.
Just ask the Clintons with their Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, which is under investigation for fraudulent and maybe downright criminal mismanagement of hundreds of millions of dollars.
Yeah, they care all right. About themselves.
