    How will America swing in the next 3 decades?  Will America swing towards Liberalism?  Conservatism? Become more Moderate, even Centrist?   In terms of socioeconomics, will there be a greater class divide with extremes of wealth & poverty with a small middle class?  Or will there will be lessening of the income extremes such as wealth & poverty with a large middle class?   Will there be a greater racial divide or will the races become more unified?

      America will become more and more liberal and socialistic.  The lower class will gain in wealth at the expense of the middle class, which will see a decrease.  This will result in a slightly smaller income gap between top and bottom, but a larger one between top and "middle" incomes.

      There will be less racial divide, but a greater one between men and women, while other groupings such as the LGB could go either way.  Personally I expect to see less divide between gay and straight but wider when it comes to transgender.

      Hopefully the division between the very rich and the middle and lower classes will decrease, thereby putting more of the money in the hands of those who do the most for our country.


      What we have now is similar to what our forefathers wanted to guard against as the very wealthy are now like the nobility of Europe once was. The way things are presently going, all of the money will be in the hands of fewer than 20 families. It's barely more than that now.

      When will something be done about this? When one person controls all of the wealth?

        What are you calling a "family"?  Mom, dad and minor children or a dynasty of 50 or more different households scattered through the nation, but all related?  Grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, siblings, etc.?

        Because it isn't possible that we are even remotely close to 20 families owning all the wealth.  With 126,000,000 households (families) in the country, 1% of those is still well over a million families, controlling well under half the wealth (a little under 40%)
