From the Inside Flap

Uncovering the Crime of the Century

The great American middle class is dying—and not from natural causes.

For the first time in modern history, the American middle class is no longer the wealthiest in the world—in fact, the net worth of the average American family is down a whopping 40 percent, and the typical American family has seen its inflation-adjusted income fall for five years in a row.

Think things are going to get better?

As bestselling author Wayne Allyn Root points out, it is hard to be optimistic when more Americans are now on welfare than work full time in year-round jobs; close to 50 percent of Americans don’t even have $500 in savings; most Americans have "subprime" credit ratings; and for the first time in history, American businesses are failing faster than they are being created.

The future of the American economy is not that of a world leader, but of a country that will soon be playing second fiddle to China, which will pass the United States as the world’s richest economy this year. It’s a future where Americans become more dependent on government—one of the fastest growing sectors of our "economy" is the number of people taking disability payments—and where "jobs" are increasingly temporary (already America's second-largest
employer is a temp agency).

What can you do to protect yourself and your family from America's economic decline and fall?

The first step is to recognize who is responsible. The Murder of the Middle Class exposes the crime and indicts the conspirators, from the Obama administration to their willing accomplices in big business, big media, and big unions—naming names and pointing out their misdeeds.

But Wayne Allyn Root doesn't just prove the crime and profile the suspects, he provides bold solutions to save American capitalism, the middle class, the GOP . . . and YOU! This middle class warrior gives you the game plan and the weapons to fight back.

By Craig Matteson HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on July 16, 2014
Format: Hardcover
Wayne Allyn Root was a student at Columbia at the same time as Barack Obama. He knows exactly what the climate of the campus was and the anti-American ethos of its classrooms and student organizations. This book is his passionate explaining of how the Progressives running our government today (in both parties – but especially in the Obama Administration) were educated in that environment at Universities all over the country and have grown up to fundamentally transform America into the a Progressive (Socialist) country and root out all vestiges of our founding. The main thing that has to go is the strong, independent, and prosperous American Middle Class. This book takes the view that it is not dying of natural causes but is being actively murdered by Obama and his ilk at every level of our government. Frankly, it is Chicago / Alinsky Politics writ Large.

The book is in two parts. The first ten chapters lay out the case of the purposeful destruction of the middle class, why they are doing it, how they are doing it, and who is doing it. On page 15 the author writes: “None of this is a coincidence. This is a cold, calculated plan to collapse the U.S. economy under the weight of debt and entitlements, bankrupt, small business owners, destroy capitalism … and murder the middle class.

"The core of the middle class is men and women who own, operate and work in small business. They are not rich. They will never be Donald Trump or Warren Buffett or Bill Gates. They earn a decent living. They enjoy a quality lifestyle. They spend the money that makes the economy go and grow. They spend the money to create most of the jobs. They spend the money that pays most of the taxes. Those taxes fund government and build the roads, highways, bridges, airports, hospitals, and colleges. In other words, we DID "build that". -- pp. 36-37

The evidence is overwhelming and irrefutable. Middle class jobs in this country are disappearing at an alarming rate. In fact, since the recession began back in 2008 approximately 60% of the jobs lost have been middle class jobs. Furthermore, the dubious economic policies implemented by the Obama administration over the past five years have only exacerbated the problem. Wayne Allyn Root smells a rat. He believes that the President and his minions are leading a concerted effort to destroy the American middle class once and for all. He presents the evidence in his brand new book: "The Murder of the Middle Class: How to Save Yourself and Your Family from the Criminal Conspiracy of the Century". If you fancy yourself a member of the fledgling middle class be prepared to be disgusted. It appears that a lot of people are rooting for your demise.

So who are the co-conspirators in the plot to destroy the American middle class? All of the usual suspects appear on Wayne Allyn Root's list.

Excellent presentation for the argument that the policies of President Obama and the Democratic party are not to help the middle class, but to cause great damage. Every time that President Obama or the Democrats say that they are enacting legislation to help the middle class, the middle class gets hurt. President Obama and the Democrats are making the American Dream disappear.

Finally, an in-your-face book about the current sad state of our country. The first half of the book is terrifying. If only 10% of what Root discusses comes to pass, we are head to a dismal future. The rest of the book provides hope and concrete steps everyone can take to reclaim our constitution, country, and lives. A must-read for liberals, conservatives, independents, and especially communists, fascists, and Marxists.

Couple this book with Cleon Skousen's "The Naked Communist" (1958) as cited by Dr. Ben Carson, and you will have the complete game plan for destroying our country.

Plain language, high energy. Root lines up the many perps and lets them have it. In the great many ideas proposed there are a few that could lead the Republicans to victory, whether they deserve it or not (there's no alternative). He makes the case that winning is not about being right (LoFos) but about selling. Does selling work? That's all Obama does. QED.
