In a nation in crisis, one thing is certain: There is no silver bullet to end the American dream.
The problem is that we have a culture that has built the American Dream so that people have been able to achieve it, to have success in life, to make it their own.
And it’s the same culture that gave us the middle class.
This is the story of how the middle classes of the world have been broken, and how we’re heading down the same path.
We need a new middle class, one that is able to rise up and reclaim our country and to help us get back on our feet.
We have a lot of work to do.
For decades, middle-class Americans have suffered from a lack of opportunity and social mobility.
This has left many unable to make ends meet, and has led to a crisis of confidence and economic security.
As the U.S. economy has declined, the gap between rich and poor has widened.
And, as more and more Americans find themselves living paycheck to paycheck, there is no getting around the fact that the middle and working classes are seeing the same symptoms of economic insecurity.
We live in a country in which the economic insecurity and lack of upward mobility that was once seen as a norm has become a fact of life.
As a result, many middle-income Americans are not only struggling with the consequences of this crisis, but also are struggling to find their footing.
This crisis, and the lack of opportunities for those in the middle, has created a dangerous backlash.
And the new generation of Americans, who are being pushed aside and pushed into the workforce, are being the biggest victims of this.
This new generation is being taught by the same old political playbook, the same failed economic strategies that were once adopted by Republicans, that the American people are somehow not worthy of a middle class that is struggling to pay the bills.
The truth is that Americans have been through a major economic downturn.
We’ve seen it in the real estate market, the auto industry, and many other sectors, and we’ve seen the consequences.
For many Americans, this recession has been the defining moment of their lives.
They have experienced the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression, and have experienced a deep sense of anxiety and insecurity about their future.
The recession has had lasting effects on the economy.
It has taken a huge toll on people’s personal finances, the ability to find jobs, and their sense of social capital.
In many ways, the economic downturn has changed the nature of the American job market.
Americans are now working longer hours for less pay, working fewer hours to save for retirement, and being asked to pay for things they don’t need.
These changes have also caused a huge amount of economic hardship for people in the bottom half of the income distribution.
The unemployment rate for the bottom 50% of the population has been well above 10% since 2008.
Many have struggled to find full-time work and find it difficult to access health care or basic necessities.
Even as the economy has recovered and more and, more people are able to find work, the U,S.
has experienced an even bigger crisis: the loss of millions of jobs.
In fact, the labor force participation rate has dropped from 67.9% in March 2007 to 47.6% in December 2010.
We also have lost nearly 8 million jobs since 2009.
In the same period, the number of people employed in the private sector has been flat.
These trends are being exacerbated by the fact, as economist Joseph Stiglitz has documented, that in some regions, the middle-aged and older have been left behind.
We see this in places like Appalachia, in the Midwest, and in the West, where more people work at lower wages, and they’re forced to leave their communities in search of better-paying jobs.
The crisis has also had a severe impact on the middle income brackets.
The poverty rate has been rising for decades.
And as people have become more insecure, the need to make money has grown.
But as we look at the long-term effects of this economic downturn on middle- and working-class families, we see the exact opposite.
A new generation has been born.
The middle class has been rebuilt.
And this new generation needs to be empowered.
We must give them a voice, and to be heard, so that they can make decisions for themselves.
The current economic crisis is not just an economic crisis.
It is also a moral crisis.
The American people have never seen their nation in this dire condition.
The United States was built on the idea that all Americans should have a chance at a life of security and opportunity.
We are the land of opportunity, and those who have worked hard, who have done their best, and who have tried hard deserve a chance to live up to their potential.
This hope was nurtured by the ideals of democracy and the rule of law, which have defined the American creed.
