The human capacity for self-delusion truly is remarkable. Most people out
there end up believing exactly what they want to believe even when the truth is
staring them right in the face. Take the U.S. economy for example. Barack
Obama wants to believe that his policies have worked and that the U.S. economy
is improving. So that is what he is telling the American people. The
mainstream media wants to believe that Barack Obama is a good president and that
his policies make sense and so they are reporting that we are experiencing an
A very large segment of the U.S. population still fully supports Barack Obama
and they want to believe that the economy is getting better so they are buying
the propaganda that the mainstream media is feeding them. But is the U.S.
economy really improving? The truth is that it is not. The rate of
employment among working age Americans is exactly where it was two years ago and
household incomes have actually gone down while Obama has been president. Home
ownership levels and home prices continue to decline.
Meanwhile, food and gasoline continue to become even more expensive. The
percentage of Americans that are dependent on the government is at an all-time
record high and the U.S. national debt has risen by more than 5 trillion dollars
under Obama. We simply have not seen the type of economic recovery that we
have seen after every other economic recession since World War II.
The horrible statistics about the U.S. economy that you are about to read are
not talked about much by the mainstream media. They would rather be
“positive” and “upbeat” about the direction that things are headed.
But lying to the American people is not going to help them. If you are
speeding in a car toward a 500 foot cliff, you don’t need someone to cheer you
on. Instead, you need someone to slam on the brakes.
The cold, hard reality of the matter is that the U.S. economy is in far worse
shape than it was four or five years ago.
We have never come close to recovering from the last recession and another one
will be here soon.
The following are 25 horrible statistics about the U.S. economy that Barack
Obama does not want you to know….
