The plague of the American family

The parents (both mother and father) are the building block of the family; the family is the cornerstone of the neighborhood; the neighborhood then becomes the heart of the town, city, state, nation and society.

As Cardinal Francis Arinze  said, “When the family is in good health — spiritually, physically, mentally, economically and otherwise — there is hope for society. And when the family is sick, all parts of society are in trouble.

Presently, the American family suffers from a sickness by political operatives (those running our country) with skillful socialistic maneuvers bent on destroying  America. Both Marx and Engels affirm that if socialism (communism), succeeds, there must be the abolition of the family.

Today, in our land and around the world, the family is attacked on all sides. Spiritually,  by denying God’s definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman, often against the expressed wish from many people.

And economically by destroying the middle class families in America. Will the middle class ever wake up and see why they are struggling so much? The only people making ends meet are the rich; the poor are on welfare; and the middle class is without good paying jobs (mostly temporary jobs) and with never ending increases in costs and taxes

When the middle class goes broke with increases in taxes and spending just to survive, they will then need assistance by the government, which will add ”millions more” on welfare, and that is when a government takes over of the country (socialism) takes  place.

Wake up America, the well-being of our society rests on the wellness of the family. The middle class families are being murdered by politicians seeking to overthrow our way of government with socialism, (government control). We must stand or fall by ridding those politicians who are destroying the greatest country in the world — America.

Read Wayne Allyn Root’s “The Murder of the Middle Class,” and you will see the problems American families face today.
