The American economy has not gone well for most Americans in the last 15 years. The number of people in the workforce has dropped 6.4 million or 4.1 percent, and the median household income has dropped over $4,000 per year. Much of this erosion in the quality of American life was due to excessive replacement of American workers by foreign workers both legal and illegal. Not counting at least 12 million illegal immigrants, the number of number of foreign born residents increased from 9.6 million in 1970 to 42.1 million in early 2016.
Food Stamp use has increased to nearly 40 percent in less than eight years of the Obama Administration. The National debt has risen 81 percent to over $19 Trillion during his administration. Although the average annual economic growth in American history is 4.1 percent, President Obama is the only president in history never to have any year over 3.0 percent. Wall Street and the big corporations that hire cheap legal and illegal immigrants to replace American workers might be better off, but the vast majority of Americans and their families are suffering. Ironically, by far the most suffering is found in the African-American community, where the unemployment rate of 8.1 percent is 65 percent higher than the national average. But who can trust government economic statistics anymore? President Obama is a great spin-master, if you don’t know economics or math.
President Obama has reduced our military manpower and combat ships and aircraft to the lowest level since 1941. He has devastated the morale and combat preparedness of our troops by using them as a social engineering experiment in radical liberalism. Our foreign policy and our intelligence security and capabilities appear to be written by and for the Muslim Brotherhood.
