Cost of Living In America Under Obama

Cost of Living In America Under Obama

                                    April 2010  Nov. 2010  Dec. 2011 Overall Increase
50 lb. Rice                 $14.98        $16.76        $19.34                  29%
25 lb. Salt                  $3.58                            $4.64                    30%
50 lb. Sugar              $25.57         $32.99        $33.63                  31%
25 lb. Flour                $6.37           $7.74          $7.98                     25%
1 gal. Corn Oil          $7.98           $7.98           $9.88                     24%

In a little over a year and a half prices of food have risen 25 to 30 percent.  This is due to “natural” inflation from using fiat currency, plus Quantitative Easing I and II that put more money into circulation with no increase in value, plus increase in cost of fuel due to decreases in domestic production and refining, plus government spending nearly a trillion dollars on “stimulus” that had no effect whatsoever on improving our economy.  There are other factors, too, that caused the decrease in purchasing power of the US Dollar, but the point here is that although the cost of food has increased dramatically, the average income has not risen correspondingly.  This means your standard of living is decreasing.
None of the presidential candidates is addressing this issue, or what they will do to turn it around.  A massive effort to recover all our domestic oil, coal and natural gas would drive down the cost of fuel and make all forms of commerce less costly.  Implementing The Fair Tax would create a huge attraction for manufacturing in the USA, bringing home offshore investments and putting more disposable income in our pockets.  (I object to the “prebate” concept of The Fair Tax; the tax should instead not apply to food and medicine.)  Eliminating the 16th Amendment, which is part of The Fair Tax concept, would remove an enormous burden on industry, business, and individuals, allowing an amazing economic growth that would restore America’s preeminence in the world.  But that wouldn’t fit in with plans for the world’s future.
People like David Rockefeller and the organizations he has created, Council on Foreign Relations (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Members_of_the_Council_on_Foreign_Relations), Trilateral Commission (http://www.trilateral.org/download/file/TC%20list%208-11%20(5).pdf), are tremendously influential in our government.  They are pushing our leaders toward the New World Order, one world government, led by the United Nations.  But, of course, they would actually be in charge, running the show from the shadows.  The world elite want to control everything and everyone.  The Bilderberg Group (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Bilderberg_participants) is part of this effort to control the world’s economy and centralize it.  There’s even work being done on the creation of a common world currency.  So, you see, they don’t want America to retain or regain preeminence, because they want a “level playing field,” where the great socialist utopia will prevail and everyone will be equal.  Trouble is, freedom and liberty will always fight this effort, and the USA stands for these values above all else.
