What's New
Riches To Rags
by Stephen Vattimo
For Sale
Author requests article critique


The united States Of America Went from being one of the most riches, most influential nation,and possessing the most powerful military in the history of the modern world.
To a nation that is bankrupt,lost it's barring on morality,Has turned away from standing for liberty, and moral decencies. And there for has lost it's influence around the world.

In the article I am going to point out how we as a nation, a people , have gone from
riches to rags. I am going to try to share with the reader the causes of the fall of this country with as few word as possible, but at the same time try not to over simplifying .

The number one reason we are in a depression, and we won't get out of this depression, is because industry, manufacturing plant were all moved to other countries.

The plus side is, the owner of these company can get cheep labor, cut cost to manufacture their products, then bring it back the United states to sell to Americans at a large profit.
Plus side is the owner become billionaires, the factories destroy the ecology of other countries , not ours, with the pollution these factories will produce.

Negative side is, this takes job away from Americans.

In the seventies I believe it was President Jim Cart who stated the The United States would turn away from a industrial nation, and instead our country would be come a service nation. Meaning our nation would be the international customer service, and banking service of the world.

Plus side, No more dirty, back breaking, health hazard jobs.
A healthier environment.

Then white collar service company owner's started make a large profit by out sourcing their customer service jobs, to other countries.

Negative side is, this took more job from American.

So if we don't have factories,people don't have jobs, plus out country has nothing to sell to other countries. if we don't have factories we have no way to mass produce weapon to defend our nation if we have another world war.
We would also be in deep trouble because every thing American's need to survive is manufacture in some other country.

The government failure to secure our boarders, has allowed a unarmed invasion
of the United States of America by Mexico.

Plus side, people can hire Mexican workers who they can pay cheaper, They don't have to pay for their taxes,or give them benefits.

Negative side, Mexican crossing the boarder illegally, have been causing destruction to farm and rancher property,and live stock. They have been involved in human slavery, and prostitution marketing. Illegal aliens have also been running drugs and weapon into the The United States.
The Illegal Mexicans have come to our country rape our country of it's wealth and culture, and to slowly take over the county by an unarmed invasion.
Most of all they take work away from Americans.

Negative side, with illegal alien taking up the jobs in the United States, the government has a shrinking population to collect taxes from, since Illegal alien don't pay taxes.

The Government has also turned on the people of this nation. They have been eroding the people's right that are protected by the constitution,and the bill of rights. One of the right of the people, that is under attack,their right to live by their religious conviction in their public or privet life.
The Government has forcing God out of our public squads, when they should be inviting Him In. Our founding Father thought so, it's written on our money, IN GOD WE TRUST.
The Government has also attacked the freedom of speech. Making all these laws
that are suppose to protect people from being offended by someone else be cause they may not agree with the other person's views on things.
I also believe the government is the big misappropriat0r of tax dollars, that why My generation has been pay for social security, yet will not be eligible for this benefit because it was bankrupted by the government taking money out of it, and who know what they did with it.

Another big piece of the puzzle of the down fall of this country , is lost of moral
baring both in social and business ethics conduct. That how people Like Bernie Madoff , who people and groups put their life saving into his hand, trusting he would wisely invest their money so it would grow,instead he stole it.
One of the think we as a people need to do to chance the course of this nation is to replace the ten commands back on public wall.
We also need to unlock, and open up the door to our public square, and invite God back in.
We need to start applying ourselves to hard and dirty work, to bring industry back into our country.
We also need to start conducting our self in amoral and ethical manner both in our interaction with our neighbor , and our business dealings.

In most of all get out and vote.

And important of all pray, for God's guidance,His help,His blessing.
