The poor and the underclass are similar, but different in many ways, Being poor and having no money, can't compare to having a house with little money. The government has failed so many fellow Americans by spending more on wars and less in urban neighborhoods. The estimated cost for the war in Iraq was said to cost 3.3 trillion dollars. If everyone just contributed a small amount of their earnings, then there would be enough to provide food, shelter, and medical care to every American. Not only should we give in monetary value, but we need to start writing our politicians that we put in office, and demand that funds be released to increase government assistance. To this day, there hasn’t been any government that has given enough aid that could ultimately have those suffering from poverty to survive for more than a few days. Which made me think of the old saying “give a man a fish he will eat for a day, but teach a man how to fish and he will eat a lifetime”.  If the government continues to fail us there will be no underclass or middle class. In the future their will only be poor and the rich.

In this video shows how the whole world is affected by poverty not just the United States its becoming worldwide. But However America is the richest country in the world and it shows how our goverment has failed us deeply.


  1. How true. The poor have little to nothing and the under-class don't have as much as the middle-class. True, we live in a broken system and it,s designed so that the poor stay poor and the rich get richer. I agree. In the future their will be no under-class or middle-class just poor and super-rich.

  2. This was a great post but personally I think as american citizens we can do better and put ourselves into a better positions.For instances taken full advanage of our "government" paid education alot of children fail to even try to work hard enough to succeed in school and most dont even think about college until 12th grade. The children is our future if they dont better theirselves then indeed the world structure in going to be Rich and Poor and no middle class. I feel like theres more 30-50 year olds sitting in classrooms taken college seriously then the 18-25 years olds thats suppose to be there. And who (the government) would want to give the students money if their only taken stuff as a joke and the parents are not even envolved enough to make a change in the childs way of thinking or to even push the school in to better educational institutes. We have to start with educating ourselves and children before seeing results in our world!
