3. The middle class in America is over
Massive corporations have acquired the American political system as merely another subsidiary that makes them profit. Owning a political system has great economic benefits and, in the case of America, it comes with it's own high tech military enforcement arm. The people that finance and run these corporations don't give a damn about the death of the American middle class. They have calculated that there is significantly more money to be made by abandoning the American worker. The next 100 years will be spent by these corporations jumping around the globe in search of the lowest wages and the least regulations. The GOP in America is just a front group for the business and money elite.
