Letter To The Editor: Americanism and the Elite Few

Americanism and the Elite Few

To The Editor:
I think Americanism for regular people is to go to school- get a job. Try to save your money, to get a car. Some try to buy a house. If you work and live our USA will look out for us with social security. These regular citizens make up 98 percent of our population (poor and middle class).
Now the other 2 percent of citizens are the rich. Some are born into riches. Some become C.E.O. of corporations and companies.
When they make their money and become successful here in the good old USA, they look for cheap labor and take our jobs overseas. They call it obligation.
These corporations are trying to take over our government with the help of the Republican party.
It started when the Supreme Court let large corporations and companies put money into political races. If you look at the make up of the Congress, most are millionaires, which are in the 2 percent.
The gap between the rich and the poor, the haves and the have nots, is widening. Most of America’s income and wealth in concentrated within an elite few at the top. American must do better to equitably distribute its wealth and income.
Stop the rich and the powerful, the Republican party and the 2 percent people.
Lots of people in government need a lesson in Americanism when they were elected by the 98 percent. To take care of American citizens first and bring our jobs back home. If not, don’t give away anymore of our jobs.
We buy your product and you take our jobs to China or India and etc. To make them Democrated nations with our tax money.
To sum this letter up: to all you rich people, remember you came here with nothing and when you leave it’s with nothing. You made your money here in America with American citizens. Please, please leave our jobs here.
I read from an out of town newspaper Americans have been watching protests against oppressive regimes that concentrates massive wealth in the hands of an elite few- an inequality—the wealth will come to regret the top 2 percent have the best education, the best homes, the best doctor, the best life.
But there is one thing that money doesn’t seem to have brought- an understanding that their fate is bound up with how the other 98 percent live.
Throughout history, this is something the top 2 percent eventually do learn- too late.
More food for thought!
Our struggle may be long but the victory is certain.
Average American,
