    Classes in the United States

    There are many people who strongly assert that corporations are the cause of socioeconomic impoverishment in the United States   There were the Occupy Movements which vainly protested what many believe to be a widening chasm between the wealthy and nonwealthy. In the 1960s, there was programs such as the Urban League and the War on Poverty.    As a result of many of these reformatory programs, many lower income people left poverty and become middle class. 

    Although many poor people become middle class, there are those who are entrenched in the lower class. Many of them have no desire to improve their socioecnomic predictament. They are quite fatalistic regarding their lives. They seem to want to be rescued.  Despite of all this, there are many lower income people who left their impoverished conditions and made successes of their lives. 

    Yes, poor people CAN succeed in America, they just have to WANT and WORK  TOWARDS leaving poverty and making something of themselves.   Many poor people in the United States seemed to be resigned regarding their siocioeconomic fate.   NO ONE is going to elevate THEM but THEM.    Let's discuss this premise!

      The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

      Winston Churchill

      Firstly people have to clear their minds of the thoughts that someone else owes them something, then you must try everything to succeed, trying a thousand times and failing is better than believing trying and failing is the worst thing that could ever happen to you.
      Believe me it is better to cry in the back of a Mercedes than on a cold park bench.

    If you could get ahold of the over 100 places I've applied to and convince one of them to accept my application and hire me, I could probably get right on that whole "try hard to succeed" thing. But of course, that requires actually getting hired first.

      Did you take my earlier suggestion to start working for up-front pay article sites?

      The first thing you should do is forget the thought that in order to succeed someone else has to give you a start, I assure you that you can do it all on your own.
