Sorry to hear it's not going better for you, sigh. If we get enough people living in survival mode things will go badly for those who put them there.
Get used to poor - it's a life sentence.
No government - of ANY kind - is ever going to change that. Why not?It ain't their job.
And besides, they don't wanna. They like having slobs like you poor so they have someone to feel superior to.

Are they really superior? You figure it out - they weren't the ones to vote YOU into office were they?

.......and if they ever did vote you into office, my bet is that you'd do the exact same thing they do; fill your own pockets. Remember:

"Those in power ALWAYS use that power to their own advantage, not to yours."

Just as you would.

There are a lot of things people don't reveal.....
Say more about #4, would you? I'm not sure I understand WHICH industry you mean.

Thanks for writing. We need to hear from the voices that are too often kept silent.

And best wishes for a brighter future.
This doesn't seem like a very progressive attitude. Sounds like the same old song and dance.
