    Reckoning

    Middle America, its crony wealthy elite, and their crony desperate poor have spent four decades chowing down in the Chinese buffet section of Diner USA. What an endless feast!

    It’s been incredible! Middle America feasts on cheap Walmart products, electronics, toys, household goods, and endless bargains. Middle America imports bargains from all over the world to fill suburban homes and garages with every imaginable convenience. The wealthy elite gorge on free federal reserve funds and tax breaks. They play endless derivative games, rolling around in extravagant clothes and cars, and buying and owning everything in sight (including 75% of the economy). The desperate poor have a huge government serving up every imaginable service, from social security, medicare, medicade, healthcare, to unemployment; without putting in a single hour’s work. Is this the American dream? Some form of celebration?

    The tab is due. Diner USA expects payment. Middle America needs to sober up. The wealthy elite need to pay up. The desperate poor need to find a job.

    All hands on deck, male and female. Its time for reckoning. Plan-a is spent. It’s time for plan-b.

    When service in a restaurant suffers, more waiters are needed. When fire breaks out everywhere, more fire fighters are needed. When crime becomes rampant, more police are needed. When democracy morphs to elected oligarchy and America lacks governance, send help to the few surviving democratic representatives. More representatives are needed. The antidote to corruption of power is disbursement of power. Step it up, America. Be proactive. Check out plan-b.

    Citizen is coach to team democracy. Coach is responsible for success. It’s your call, coach.

    Middle America Reform Party

    The middle America reform party offers a new paradigm in American politics. “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” This translates politically to ”The needs of middle America outweigh the needs of the few”.

    Middle America:
    Middle America is the foundation, vessel, protector, and defender of America. Middle America is the fundamental source of all American liberty, freedom, and equality. Middle America made America, defends America, and preserves liberties, freedoms, and equality.

    There are no democrats or republicans, liberals or conservatives, red or blue. There is only middle America and two significant extreme fringes, the radical desperate poor and the radical wealthy elite.

    Middle America’s two radical fringe are a curse and a blessing. Cauldrons of wealthy elite and desperate poor spur imagination, creativity, initiative, and progress. These same cauldrons produce tyranny, exploitation, liability, and burden.

    Middle America must tend both desperate poor and wealthy elite extremes for simple survival and progress. The extreme desperate poor will always require social programs, social security, medicare, unemployment compensation, and etc. The extreme wealthy elite will always require taxation, regulation, and oversight. Tending two radical extremes is the fate of middle America. The payoff is liberty, freedom, and equality for more Americans.

    The extremes:
    The core of the wealthy elite paradigm is extravagance, personality, and small or absent government. The core of desperate poor paradigm is suffering, personality, and large all-serving government. Either paradigm, in extreme, destroys and dismantles middle America.

    Middle America must differentiate and define extremes, insulate itself from the associated destructive dangers, and govern. America’s democracy and media must remain objective to wealthy elite or desperate poor paradigms. The dangers of extreme influences include eight elephants: war, immigration, ecology, recession, foreclosure, joblessness, tax, and debt.

    Clear definition of wealthy, poor, and middle improves objectivity. Here is a possibility:

    Simple definition:
    The Obama administration recently defined America’s upper tax bracket above $250,000 (note1) per year income. The federal government defines poverty at $22,050 (family of 4) (note2). In 2006, the “real” (adjusted for inflation) median annual household income rose 1.3% to $50,233.00. (note3) Herein is a simple definition of wealthy elite, desperate poor, and middle America.

    The desperate poor:
    “The poverty rate in 2009 (14.3 percent) was the highest poverty rate since 1994… The number of people in poverty in 2009 (43.6 million) is the largest number in the 51 years for which poverty estimates have been published… Between 2008 and 2009, the poverty rate increased for children under the age of 18 (from 19.0 percent to 20.7 percent)
    http://www.census.gov/hhes/www/poverty/about/overview/index.html

    The wealthy elite:
    “In the United States at the end of 2001, 10% of the population owned 71% of the wealth and the top 1% owned 38%. On the other hand, the bottom 40% owned less than 1% of the nation’s wealth. According to this 2006 study by the Federal Reserve System, from 1989 to 2004, the distribution in the United States had been changing with indications there was a greater concentration of wealth held by the top 10% and top 1% of the population.” footnote1

    “In addition, wealth is unequally distributed with the wealthiest 25% of US households owning 87% ($54.2 trillion, in 2009) of the wealth in the United States.” footnote2

    Conclusion:
    Approximately 10% of America is “wealthy elite”. Approximately 14% of America is “desperate poor”. Middle America occupies the middle.

    History:
    For over a century, as the American population grew, the federal government congressional and executive representation fell further behind the 1776 pace of one representative per 26,000 citizens and one president per 2.4 million. Instead of adding more congressional members or presidents, the congress simply was paid more for the added 21.5 multiple citizen load, now at one congressperson per 573,831 citizens.

    Today:
    The current salary (2010) for rank-and-file members of the House and Senate is $174,000 per year. (note4) This salary plus one and a half median income of the American population breaks $250,000 income. Our congresspersons play at edge of wealthy elite and very many government representatives easily qualify as wealthy elite.

    The president earns a $400,000 annual salary, along with a $50,000 annual expense account, a $100,000 non-taxable travel account and $19,000 for entertainment (note5) The president, with perks, makes over 10 times median American income and 22 times the poverty level family. At median American pay, the federal government could hire 9 presidents for the pay of the existing one president. Presidential income is clearly wealthy elite income.

    Conclusion:
    At $250,000, large portions of federal representatives are “radicalized” to the wealthy elite. The president and congress are compensated using a corporate (wealthy elite) pay scale paradigm that concentrates power and boosts executive pay.

    Under the red/blue, conservative/liberal, democrat/republican political paradigm there is no conflict of interest in today’s federal government. Under the “middle America” paradigm, the entire government is a conflict of interest to middle America.

    Does middle America really want wealthy elite radicals running it’s government? It is time middle America face its fate, drop the old paradigms, and take charge of America.

    When service in a restaurant suffers, more waiters are required. When fire breaks out everywhere, more fire fighters are required. When crime becomes rampant, more police are required. When democratic power faulters, more congresspersons are required. The antidote to corruption of power is disbursement of power. Step it up, America. Be proactive. Check out plan-b.

    I agree 100%. Supporters with this book in their hands will be able to debate/educate their neighbors easily. It will be great to have around during his next run. I’m sure he’s going to.

    wow! This is great! I can see this helping in 2012. There is no way he is not running. I mean, this is being released April 19th 2011. I think he’ll announce his candidacy by then at the latest. He should announce his candidacy now though.
