As for purchasing power... You will need to work 40 hours per week for 3-4 weeks to rent a house or apartment in most places in the country. Someone else in the household will have to do the same for utilities.
If anyone has noticed, the age of minimum wage workers have went up significantly compared to what they were in the past. Who wants to hire a teenager when there are millions of adults, with families and bills, hungry for work, any work?
I forgot.... their biggest supporters are the people they enslave. Todays democrats make Hitler's propagandist, Joseph Goebbels, look like an amateur.
What do you expect from the slavery party? Most people forget that Abraham Lincoln was a republican and the leaders of the South at the time were democrats. The difference between democrats of the past and now is that in the old days they enslaved black people. Today they don't discriminate. They want to enslave everyone.

Healthcare in the US is reminiscent of the 1960 movie "Pay or Die". It was about extortion rackets. The medical industry is a huge extortion racket profiting off the one thing people hold most valuable - their health. The costs are insanely out of line with what people can pay. Insurance is it's enabler. I don't know how to fix it but I do know that the way things are now it is not sustainable.
Each unit will require a unique identifier to properly function like a telephone number. Of course that number will be tied to the owner of the vehicle and therefore traceable.
Nowhere in the second amendment does it say you only have the right to bear arms in your home. The original intention of the second amendment was to protect against tyranny. The framers of the constitution were well aware of European history under the nobility and their abuses. That document is full of clauses that address the excesses of Kings and their nobles.

Yay, someone said the truth. I am a Republican and vote Republican - not because I like what they say or do but because I will not vote Democrat under any condition. By far the largest concern Americans have is the economy and jobs but neither party wants to touch it. Why, you ask? The only way to fix the economy and jobs is by stepping on the toes of their corporate sponsors who shipped our jobs and the economy over to China. Why won't the republicans focus on government propaganda like true unemployment figures? For instance people who's unemployment benefits run out are taken off the lists of unemployed and put in the dropped out of the workforce category even though they are still looking for a job. How about inflation? Energy and food aren't counted although both have the largest impact by far on household budgets.
This article tries to come up with explanations but just touches the surface. First of all, young people of all races routinely get harassed by police, especially in poorer areas. Higher income liberals love low income housing but not in their neighborhood. Thy build projects in out of the way places with no jobs. These projects are built with the lowest cost materials and fixtures possible that don't last long at a cost per unit significantly higher than apartments on the high-end side. In the Detroit area when there actually were manufacturing jobs that paid half-way decently one of the requirements for employment was reliable transportation. Public transportation was not considered reliable. Today to get a job, not only do you need reliable transportation you also need a cell phone and internet access with an email address.
Finally someone who makes sense!
What everyone seems to miss about the "police" tear gassing one Television crew was that while a few of the members of that particular paramilitary unit where taking down their lights and pointing the camera down another member of the unit had the fleeing reporters covered with an aimed weapon. What would have happened if the reporters decided to come back and protect their very expensive equipment? Open fire?
