Stop blaming the 1 percent

Divide and conquer seems to be the mantra of liberals who want you to believe that the wealthy 1 percent of our citizens stole the money that's rightfully yours.

I'm as poor as anyone on welfare, but I'm smart enough to know that the middle class has largely disappeared because of the numerous Free Trade Agreements, championed by both parties, that effectively dismantled our manufacturing sector. This glaring fact seems to have eluded the brilliant minds in Congress.

Instead of engaging in class warfare and demonizing successful people, why don't we all work on bringing our manufacturing industries home and the middle class jobs that go with it?
