Congress: Middle Class Incomes Drop as Immigration Surges

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner, April 23, 2015

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.

The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service report studied immigration and middle class income from 1945-2013 and found that as immigration slowed between 1945 and 1970, American incomes increased.

But when immigration expanded, the incomes of the bottom 90 percent of Americans went flat and then dropped beginning in 2000.

In the report to the Senate Judiciary Committee, the CRS reported that the foreign-born population of the United States surged 324.5 percent, from 9,740,000 to 41,348,066, from 1970 to 2013.

And as that happened, incomes of the bottom 90 percent dropped 7.9 percent in 2013 dollars, from an average of $33,621 to $30,980.

The report could throw cold water on congressional efforts to expand immigration for tech and other jobs. One bill, sponsored by Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch and backed by presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio would boost guest worker levels and remove any cap on green cards for certain foreign graduates of American colleges and universities.

    This is a major reason why 19th century Socialists and labor leaders like Mother Jones and Jack London supported the wonderful Chines Exclusion Act.

    They knew the “robber barons” were using coolie labor to keep down wages.

    • Good point. But that was back in the day that Progressives, up to FDR, used to support poor and working class White people. Now, the political Left is more interested in increasing the numbers of blacks and browns to vote Democratic. All Whites-even the poor- are the enemy as far as the Left is concerned.

      Today we have to deal with slimy economists who twist numbers and demographics to give them the conclusions they want.

      I honestly believe one of our biggest threats is the modern economist. They’re the ones driving ‘migrant labor’ policies. Without them the race hustlers would have no argument about bring third world workers to first world countries.

      • USofAntiWhite

        They really don’t have any argument, other than it is good for non-Whites. I tell people all the time that I am against virtually all immigration. If they make any kind of comment questioning my opinion I simply say, “what is in it for me and my family and my community?” Shuts them up every time. I’ve yet to get a response. The jig is up. Challenge people with reason; most sheeple are ill prepared for it.

      • De Doc

        These are the same economists who essentially argue that profligate spending and horrendous debt levels are good governance.

    • Weisheit77

      This is not my area of interest but really? Mother Jones was against the Chinese? Interesting when you know that M. Sanger wanted abortion to keep the lower races and dumb people down. Very interesting.

    • Paleoconn

      It used to be some socialists were principled, truly fighting for the working classes. Toda, leftie parties everywhere are merely an elitist collage of academics, pro-multiculti diversity-mongers, LGBT promoters, ie. as far removed from working class common folks as a political movement can be.

  • David Ashton

    Reliance on cheap imported labor (1) discourages mechanization and (2) pushes social costs onto others than the importing employers.

  • JohnEngelman

    More people mean less of everything good to go around. Anyone should be able to understand that.

    • a multiracial individual

      Japan, South Korea, and most European nations are more densely populated than African and South American nations.

      • Ed

        Yes and the Asian ones at least take a dim view of immigration. Japan is like 98.5% Japanese. They just got around to granting Japanese citizenship to Ethnic Koreans who have lived there for 3-4 generations. I went to business school with an Indian student born in Dubai, as was his parents and he can’t get UAE citizenship.

        • Bossman

          Yes, those UAE Arabs don’t give out citizenship even to fellow Muslims. They walk around with white flowing robes to let everybody know that they are not migrant workers and they also don’t want to be mistaken for Pakistanis and Filipinos. Contrast this to Israel which gives instant citizenship to any Jew from any part of the world.

          • stedman holder

            We are talking about you and your leech parasite brothers from south of the border, not UAE arabs. Go clean the toilet moron boy.

          • Lexonaut

            ” Contrast this to Israel which gives instant citizenship to any Jew from any part of the world.”

            An important part of that instant citizenship is a required extended course of total immersion in the modern Hebrew language. If you can’t or won’t assimilate you don’t get to stay.

        • Rob

          However, those arabs want citizenship in westernc ountries. Go figure!!!

      • JohnEngelman

        White Europeans and Orientals have higher average IQ’s and lower crime rates than African Negroes and Hispanics.

        • Albert

          Yeah. Immigration isn’t exactly bringing us productive people of quality.

        • Bossman

          Asians do indeed have higher IQ’s than Blacks and Hispanics but the problem is that there are just too many of them and they could easily destroy white identity in North America. In fact, East Asians are working silently to do just that.

          • stedman holder

            We are being overrun with your Mexican sub-human friends. Go enrich mexico idiot.

          • Jason Lewis

            The American identity is already destroyed.

          • We would say the same things about Greaseritos.

          • Reynardine

            Hispanics do indeed have lower IQ’s than Asians and Whites but the
            problem is that there are just too many of them and they could easily
            destroy white identity in North America. In fact, Hispanics are
            working silently to do just that.

          • Bossman

            Those “Hispanics” are simple people who are happy picking tomatoes and cleaning toilets. I don’t believe that they have any master plan. Whereas, the Chinese are working day and night to overtake North America. That is the opinion of some CIA analysts.

          • SentryattheGate

            You ever hear of LaRaza and their motto? Ex-LaRaza head Cecilia Munoz is Obama’s chief domestic policy advisor, the current and past sec. of Labor are Hispanic (and pro-amnesty). And you don’t think they have a master plan? Ever hear of Reconquista?

          • listenupbub

            I am going out on a limb and actually giving you credit for your argument, Bossman. You are right.

      • Publius Pompilius Quietus

        Without immigration, the populations of European states will drop, thus reversing the undesirable trends associated with population growth.

      • Bossman

        That is correct. For this reason East Asians should stay away from North America and South America.

        • stedman holder

          And you go back to mexico.

        • Reynardine

          Are you kidding? They’d be loads better than what’s already in South America.

          They don’t go there because Asians have taboos against certain unclean peoples.

          • Bossman

            I do hope that you’re correct about that. Nothing would please me more than to know that the hordes of East Asia are staying away from Latin America.

          • Reynardine

            Each day you astound me with a new idiocy.

            Job. Well. Done.

            *golf clap*

        • Lexonaut

          They are staying away, because things are now better there than here.

          The current growth recession in China has their economy expanding at a much faster pace (7%) than ours, and in good years they grow as fast as we did in the decades following the Civil War (15%).

      • USofAntiWhite

        Well haven’t you learned anything here? Black and Brown people are generally not above average smart and also, unlike Europeans and East Asians Africans and Meso-Americans are awful at innovating workable cultures and societies. This is mainly why we here at amren want to permanently separate from these people. If you look at people and cultures as all different instead of in some pseudo-egalitarian fashion the world will make much more sense.

    • Ed

      It’s common sense. A small population that engages in global trade by exporting more than it consumes will have a healthy middle class. Just look at the Gulf States, Singapore and even Switzerland.

    • Sid Ishus

      I’m always concerned when I agree with something you post.

      • listenupbub

        Don’t be. He can think. Socialism is not so bad when you have a unified people, if you think about it.

    • But it benefits the special interests.

      • JohnEngelman

        It benefits the people who own and run the United States.

    • listenupbub

      Some people say that immigration is the same as organic population growth. More workers and more businesses for the workers, and an overall bigger economy.

      • USofAntiWhite

        An eight year old could tell you nothing is farther from the truth. That is like saying, “some people say that silk is like sand paper.”

      • Lexonaut

        “Some people say that immigration is the same as organic population growth.”

        This would be true if we still had the kind of economic freedom and encouragement of entrepreneurial capitalism that reigned here in the 25 years following the Civil War.

        • JohnEngelman

          Immigration has always had a depressing effect on wages, and an inflationary effect on prices. It did so during the eighteenth and nineteenth century when my ancestors came over from Europe.

          • Lexonaut

            Dig up the graphs and tables to prove your case.

            In the meantime, the USA always had chronic labor shortages. As long as there was land into which to expand (until the closing of the frontier), people started their own farms rather than working for others. This is what populated the western states — newcomers being able to become landowners instead of having to remain serfs.

            What was the market for the produce of the new farms and ranches? The cities of the east, teeming with new immigrants. How did the produce get to market? On the new railroads. How did the new railroads get built? Using steel made in the east by the new immigrants in the cities, and so on.

            Am I advocating immigration? No. Am I advocating reopening the frontier? You bet. The federal government should sell off its extensive land holdings to evil capitalist developers so that the land can be raped and exploited efficiently, providing evil capitalist jobs for the downtrodden worker masses.

          • JohnEngelman

            Labor shortages cause wages to rise. I think that is a good thing.

          • Lexonaut

            i don’t disagree. But you said that your ancestors were somehow different and experienced depressed wages (and higher prices) during a time of labor shortages, yes?

            You’re always telling people how you are very careful to present facts and reasoning. Go for it. Explain to everyone how the working man was crushed by the economic boom in the USA that began with the construction of the Erie canal and didn’t end till the advent of the income tax and trust busting.

          • JohnEngelman

            When I say that immigration has a depressing effect on wages, I do not mean that when there is a high rate of immigration wages always decline. I mean that wages would always be higher without the immigration.

            It is the law of supply and demand. If there are two job openings for every job applicant wages will be higher than when there are two job applicants for every job opening.

          • listenupbub

            Be careful about how angry you get over ideologies.

            It has been found that ideology inspires more hate in the average party voter than race does in the average racist.

            This is one of the weaknesses of whites: we believe so strongly in ideologies and fight so strongly over them, going way back into the Christian wars.

          • Lexonaut

            It was rhetorical anger. However, my annoyance with JE is real because he loves to say that he, being of superior IQ and opposed to immigration, is driven by facts and reason rather than unthinking raw emotion.

            He read Wealth of Nations and learned nothing from it because he doesn’t want to learn, only to justify his wordview regarding the poor downtrodden workers of the world.

            One Friday evening I went into that book something of a socialist, never having read it before. By Monday morning I was a confirmed free market capitalist. No wonder dictatorships see books as potentially dangerous weapons. No wonder they want to control the schools and media so that people won’t even think about opening such a book in the first place.

            Funny, I just googled Paul Krugman and he says it’s the bee knees. You aren’t going to disagree with your hero are you, John?

          • baldridge999

            Non-white immigration into any white country is always bad for white people. That’s the only argument that really matters. Even if every non-white immigrant had an IQ of 150, that’s not a reason to let them in. Even if they helped the economy, that’s not a reason either.

          • JohnEngelman

            Every country benefits from more people with high IQ’s and low rates of crime and illegitimacy.

          • baldridge999

            How do white people benefit by being made minority in their own country?

          • JohnEngelman

            Those who cannot compete with non whites do not benefit.

          • baldridge999

            That’s ridiculous, anti-white. You anti-whites will use any rationalization for flooding white countries with non-whites.

          • JohnEngelman

            Far from advocating “flooding white countries with non-whites” I have pointed out that immigration depresses the wages of American citizens.

          • baldridge999

            It also makes whites a minority in their own country. That’s the main issue.

          • JohnEngelman

            For you it is. I enjoy the cultural diversity immigrants contribute to American society, but I recognize that this cultural diversity has economic and environmental costs.

          • baldridge999

            So you support white genocide – check.

          • listenupbub

            This is where I come and respectfully disagree with your line of thinking. We could easily have a situation where there is a surplus of smart people. If so, plenty of people in America “can” compete with non-whites, but there is just not enough opportunity.

            When this happens, the wages for educated work go down, like in China, where researchers and analysts in financial companies make 20k a year.

            In such a situation, it is imperative to take positions of leadership in society, to be the guy at the top who exploits everyone. Chancellors at universities, for example, now make like 500k a year, and their job requires very little effort.

        • listenupbub

          It was not freedom, but the vast amount of resources being found and harvested.

          The freedom in this era until the 1950’s was wonderful, though, and was a good in itself. Both freedom of association, and the free, organic expression of the American soul.

          • Lexonaut

            “It was not freedom, but the vast amount of resources being found and harvested.”

            Those vast resources exist today, especially in Alaska, but are off limits under federal lock and key. People east and west of the Rockies, and south of Alaska, have no idea how much of this country is off limits to exploitation by free market capitalism.

            In a very real sense free market capitalism combined with ownership of private property are the most fundamental freedoms of all. The other freedoms are in aid of this one. The founders understood this and planned an entire nation around it. Just read the first sentence of the Declaration of Independence and spare me the soft-pedaled leftist nonsense.

          • listenupbub

            Oh, hahaha, I’m not a leftist. I’m playing a little bit of devil’s advocate.

            My mind is quite open, however. That is how I found race realism.

            I imagine that in our current situation, immigration is terrible for our workers. I imagine that if America was harvesting resources like we once were, workers and the economy would do better. I imagine that Obamacare acts like a tax on employers that slows the economy down.

            I like to throw screwballs in the economic debates because I am tired of people arguing for an against or for multiculturalism using nothing but economic arguments. “If the GDP grows, non-white immigration is good.” “If workers are making 30k a year, we can flood with hispanics.”
            “Indians have made America wealthy, so you have to let all the Indians into the country.”

            Forget it. Money is not that important to me.

          • Lexonaut

            “Forget it. Money is not that important to me.”

            Nor to me. However, the infrastructure available to me, and cultural climate in which I live, are very much of concern. I like living in a wealthy nation (and that’s what national wealth is — infrastructrure). I’d love it if it were 300% more wealthy.

            Obama is quite right when he says “You didn’t build that.” However, Andrew Carnegie did, and John D. Rockefeller, and Henry Ford, and J.P. Morgan, and Thomas Edison, and Alexander Graham Bell, and hundreds of other entreneurial industrialists, venture capitalists and bankers.

            Government financed part of the long haul rail system, and much of the national highway system, and the legacy of post WW2 machine tools was very helpful, but apart from those kinds of things government takes, not makes.

    Generating and maintaining economic inequality in this country is a bipartisan effort. Liberals contribute through their lax policies regarding immigration. Conservatives contribute through their asinine tax cuts for the wealthy.

    • baldridge999

      Income inequality is unavoidable. It’s what the wealthy do with their vast wealth that matters most.

  • Luca

    Throughout American history, immigrants have been willing to work for lower wages and to vote for politicians promising them benefits. To us it is lower wages, but to them it is a windfall as they are usually escaping countries that have slave wages if they have any work at all.

    Allowing more immigrants into the country during times of high unemployment is an insane policy. Labor unions should be marching on Washington demanding roll backs on immigration but instead they are keeping silent. They are following the agenda of the radical Left.

    100+ years ago, there was justification for mass immigration when we had explosive manufacturing growth. Now that manufacturing has shipped overseas, there is no justification.

    • I disagree. In the past, the immigrant was expected to accommodate himself to America, not the other way. There was no “affirmative action” for Irish, or Germans. There was no welfare, or bilingual education, either. Immigration was all about what was good for America. And those we did accept, considered themselves lucky that they even got here. No, totally different today.

      • listenupbub

        Absolutely. Nowadays, if an immigrant speaking some obscure African language cannot converse with the medical providers who are giving him/her free first-class healthcare on the taxpayers’ dime, he/she will raise hell and then demand an interpreter. My mother deals with it all the time at the hospital.

      • USofAntiWhite

        I’ve read that about a third of European immigrants from the Ellis Island era wound up going back to their homelands eventually because they could not make it. You will hear a self loathing prog say that about as often as they will mention Black and Indian slave owners or African male crime in America. Facts are kryptonite to the deceitful.

        • Good point. Thanks for bringing that up. Yes, in the past a great many of these European immigrants didn’t make it in America, and guess what? They went back home! No one said: “We need to spend more money making sure the Italian people, the Irish people, the Slavic people, can more successfully assimilate to our culture. After all, diversity is our strength…”

    • CircleTheWagons

      Correct you are Luca. That is the paradox I am seeing as well. The only thing I can gather is that all major union leadership has been bought off. If this was happening just a scant fifty years ago there would be labor/Pinkerton wars in the streets and cement shoes being fitted for size nightly. Alas, the blue collar worker is on his own now.

  • DaveMed

    Hmmm… there are a number of economic confounders here. With that said, as long as this helps to advance the anti-immigration movement, I’m all for it.

    • antiquesunlight

      What do you mean? It makes sense to me that a greater supply of people would tend to decrease demand for labor which would tend to decrease wages or at least cause wage growth to stagnate. In fact, it would be surprising to me if anything else happened.

      • DaveMed

        Oh, I’m not denying that massive immigration has a logical link to decreasing “middle-class” wages.

        But there are many reasons offered for the increase in wages that “middle-class” Americans saw from 1945-1970s; e.g., the elimination of a great deal of America’s manufacturing rivals in WW2.

        I’m sure that there are a myriad of factors that one could correlate with fluctuations in “middle-class” wages. The degree of causation that can be attributed to these various factors is another question.

        Again… with all of this said, I have no doubt that in 2015 America, the vast numbers of poor immigrants are absolutely destroying “middle-class” White America.

        • USofAntiWhite

          The US manufactured 90% of the world’s industrial products in 1960 and the country was 90% White. Couple that with the cultural, economic and political clout that came out of WW2 for the US and that is why. The US was so robust during that period that it in many ways paid to rebuild Europe with The Marshall Plan. Japan was assisted too. Non-White “immigration” has done nothing… nothing to improve the lives of middle class Americans. Nothing.

        • antiquesunlight

          Yeah didn’t think about the effect of the War. Nevertheless, if mass immigration deflates wages, a decrease in immigration should tend to increase wages because it will create a greater demand for labor.

  • MekongDelta69

    As the ‘kids’ would say… Well, Duhhhhhhh

  • And, as I will say this for the 10,000th time to anyone who will listen: The argument that “immigrants keep jobs here” is a load of crap. AN IMMIGRANT CANNOT CREATE HIS OWN JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Had to get that out. Sorry for shouting.) And, yes, I have heard that as an argument for more immigration, as ridiculous as it sounds.
    Most Americans do not benefit from immigration. Who does? Politicians and the very wealthy. (Uhhh, gee, ya think THAT is the reason why we still accept so many immigrants? Naaa, can’t be. Our leaders aren’t that callous, are they?)

    • LHathaway

      If they create a job, they certainly don’t give it to the native born.

  • TheCogitator

    Maybe presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio will claim the Obama exception, but like Obama, he is not a “natural born citizen.” A “natural born citizen” has two citizen parents at the time of his birth. Rubio’s parents did not become citizens until after his birth. Because the populace is mostly ignorant, and the mainstream media works for the evil rulers, our Constitution has been effectively amended to remove the “natural born citizen” qualification.

    And we wonder why the country is going to hell.

    • Lexonaut

      “A “natural born citizen” has two citizen parents at the time of his birth.”

      This is a tough one for me because my English father refused to become a citizen.

      If two Guatemalan peasants become naturalized US citizens are their children likely to be more understanding of, and sympathetic to, the culture than I was? My father had divided loyalties but the “other” was English and white, not Mestizo.

    • Lexonaut

      Five years ago I would not have understood what you are talking about. Today I see that it’s really a freedom issue, and you’re right. Sometimes maintaining freedom for freedom’s sake has to trump everything else, and this is true not only for speech and economic freedom but also for freedom of association, which has to include the freedom to exclude those who would overwhelm our culture with theirs.

  • belajadevotchka2

    I wanted to comment on another article last posted last week about immigration and the F-1 visa but I didn’t get to it. My father-in-law had brain surgery recently and sadly, passed yesterday. My husband and I can’t go to Russia to pay respects and help Mom Due to our finances and my heart is breaking for him.

    Anyway, I wanted to tell about this F-1 visa, and also the J visa (both of which should really be called human trafficking & slavery visas) firsthand . My husband came to the U.S. on an F-1. He came here as a “student” but he already had degrees from Russia. The American company that brought him here had a recruiting group in Russia that would go to the universities to find students who were ready to graduate to bring them over here immediately after the had their Russian degree in hand. Now, a degree from a Russian univ is NOT an American degree (although their 4yr degree is equiv to about 8yrs here) so these companies bring what they call “students” over here by using the ruse that they will come over here and by working as an *wink wink* “intern” they will scholastically earn what they need to have their Russian degree evaluated and transferred to an American degree, mainly English language is what they need to have an equivilant American degree.

    So, these companies get “students”, sell the foreign students magic beans by telling them – Hey come work for us in the U.S.!!! We will house you, feed you, you will get American univ equiv. AND we will PAY YOU!!!…you all get the picture
    To the Russian student from central Siberia, this is fantastic!!!

    So they come over, they get worked to death, these companies are able to do this and legally pay them less than minimum wage because they are “interns” or “apprentices” and they house them in motels 6 to a room. Either the student leaves after his contract is up completely disillusioned, has his family pay the company to get him out of it and goes back home, or just bites the bullet and finishes with the hopes of staying legally and changing immigration status. My husband did the last thing. He went hungry, his family sent him what they could after they were made aware of his indentured servitude, he lived with 5 other guys and was finally able to get out of that situation, and no longer a “student”, as long as he was to stay, he had to work for that company. They didn’t do a whole lot better by him but, long story short, we met, fell in love and for love and some other reasons (not so he could stay but because I had serious health issues and needed a next of kin as I have no family) we got married.

    2 years later after hard work and saving a lot of money, we decided for the time being we were going to stay in the states, we went to an immigration attorney and did the whole spouse change immigration status to permanent resident alien (getting his green card). As soon as we went through all that and he was official, that (harsh 4 letter words here) company let him go because now they would have to pay taxes for him, workmans comp insurance, everything else a company has to do when their employees aren’t slaves.

    So when people talk about the govt and corporations and $$$$$, they sure ain’t lying.
    This country is done. Stick a fork in it and start over.

    And for those of you that take issue with all immigrants, if you knew my guy, you would be glad he is here. He’s on our side. We don’t think, talk or even live “country” anymore. It’s not this country we are concerned with anymore. It’s White blood & DNA we live for.

      I also just wanted to add that we aren’t staying in the United States. We are planning to go back to Russia in a few years. And I know some of you are against any immigration and I understand that, trust me, I really do. But if it wasn’t for this beautiful warm hearted uncorrupted White man, I would surely have died alone 5 years ago. He is part of our family. It’s long past time to worry about immigration and America, now.

        Isn’t it sad that the two of you now feel the need to go to Russia for opportunity. Or is it to escape the race war here?

        • belajadevotchka2

          Both. Mostly, though, it’s the racial aspect and the living under government tyranny thing! Oh, the irony- I could only imagine how this would sound to someone back in the 1950s- “Hey, I’m fleeing the United States and defecting to Russia to escape government tyranny!” Wow. Saying this in the 1980s even!! My how times have changed!
          It’s that, and for me, it’s the hot weather thing. I need cold weather. I cannot tolerate weather above 45F. As far as opportunities go, work, etc, being of European stock, we are very industrious and talented people blessed by DNA with high IQs and the ability to learn and adapt (adapt to anything but heat for me, anyway!) and we are very resourceful. We have skills that are marketable anywhere in the world and we always manage to do okay for ourselves with a little extra to help our fellows and folk and other lil creatures. Also, with the internet, there are many ways to make a living from anywhere in the world. I would love for all of our people to be able to leave all this crap and start fresh.

      • I like your style! I didn’t really have much to add to the conversation other than that. Carry on, Betty.

        • belajadevotchka2

          No. Way. I seem to be more famous than previously thought 😉

      Sorry to hear about your loss. My genuine condolences. Richard Spencer at Radix Journal has made the observation that “immigration” is really a code for race. He has said, for example, that the immigration of Boers from South Africa would probably be a net plus for the United States. I suspect the same could be said for most immigration from Europe, and I include Russia in Europe. Limited immigration would reduce the chances of immigrants being treated like your husband was treated, although it would probably not eliminate them. But I sadly share your observation that the U.S. as presently configured is beyond rescue. Hope that you can make a decent new life in Russia.

    • Sorry to hear about the loss of your father-in-law. I agree completely with your comments.

  • John Smith

    And Rubio is now leading the GOP pack among voters.

    • SentryattheGate

      He’s a snake; speaking pro-amnesty to Hispanics and anti-amnesty to Whites! He’s part of that ungrateful, haughty and selfish Latino community in south Florida, that slammed the door in White faces, telling us to “get out with your English language and American flag”! He’s just a big ego who wants to become the first Latino president.

      • I from Florida & have written him years ago. He never bothers to reply even though I’m a registered Republican & he represents Florida. Usually the GOP does better than to put a sleezy lawyer, who never worked at real job, in office. This time I guess they’re slipping.

  • John Smith

    More serfs.

    Obama said he wants to initiate the “middle class economics” but he keeps allowing illegal aliens to come at all costs. It shows he is either a fool or a hypocrite, anti-white for sure.

    • He’s also anti-black, as he wants the US to be a dumping ground for Greaseritos, who naturally compete with blacks for unskilled jobs.

  • Dale McNamee

    Is anyone surprised ?

    I’m not…

  • Hilis Hatki

    Does Congress want a pay raise because they have to deal with such difficult problems.
    If elected Senator of this here fine state the first thing I will do is form a Committee to investigate the formation of Committees.

    Right before Obama leaves office, the Federal Reserve will normalize interest rates, and when this happens, we will repeat what happened in 2008. Only this time around, the USD will lose its value in the international markets leaving America and the West in complete economic disarray.

    Furthermore, the only reason why Capitalism continues to thrive to this day is the very fact that the Federal Reserve, which is run by the Tribe, props up markets with illegal financially instruments that place the burden on its taxpayers. As a result, Americans and others investors that rely on the USD as their medium of exchange will be left up $hit creek without a paddle.

    And as the West continues to be invaded by the Third World, not only will the White population decline, but Capitalism (or some form of hierarchy) will cease to exist ever again.

    First, we will enter a state of Socialism. More than half our our income will be forced to go to the government. High income individuals will be burdened (exploited) the most and the lower income individuals will be least affected. As we transition from Capitalism to Socialism, politically there will major developments that will lead the West to a state of Bolshevism.

    The West is in the middle of legalizing weed, gay marriage, majority dispossession, gender/race equality, etc.

    So again, before Obama leaves office, we will see the final collapse of Capitalism and the next step toward Bolshevism in the West.

  • Thanks Obama!
