An Ode to Entrepreneurs: Middle-class? Long Gone!

J. Speer-Williams, Contributing Writer

Like swans of legend, American entrepreneurs sing their final, beautiful song before they just fade away.

When everyone who is employed works for the state or federal government, we’ll all likely be as impoverished as the citizens of the old Soviet Union. Remember the Soviets standing in long lines, with falling snow, to buy what they could from a dwindling short supply of consumer goods; goods they could barely afford, like two left boots, both of the wrong sizes?

Having too many people working for the government is the antithesis of prosperity. And it’s estimated that for every “green” job the government creates, they’ll eliminate 2.2 jobs from the real world of private enterprise, at a cost of about $700,000.00 a piece.

Government employees seem to concentrate on negatives: They stop people, impoverish people, tax people, poison people, imprison people, kill people, torture people, or bomb civilizations into rubble. Governments create little of a positive nature, least of all their governmental programs.

Sophists-historians-academics say, without government programs there would never have been an American middle-class. How wrong can people be? Well, these fellows push the limits, when they repeat the doctrines so widely promulgated by America’s academic class. They are the living embodiments of how a people can be very insightful and yet so blind at the same time.


It was not government or large corporations, but the American entrepreneur who built our middle-class, in spite of governmental programs. At last, however, the federal government eliminated America’s small businessmen, while rewarding the oligarchs of the Banking Cartel. And there went our middle-class, too burdened were they with governmental programs, taxes, laws, and regulations.

America’s small businessmen and middle-class withstood the damaging effects of Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal programs; those governmental infringements, however, formed the paradigm by which our entrepreneurs and middle-class were eventually annihilated by governmental programs.

And even if the International Monetary/Banking Cartel brought back to America its monopoly corporations, it would be no better than a Medieval European serfdom of contractual servitude between us -- the semi-free peasants -- and the Cartel’s lords of corporate greed.

Before the middle-class was wiped out, George Carlin got it right when he said, “The upper-class keeps all the money and pays none of the taxes. The middle-class pays all the taxes and does all the work. The poor are there just to scare the s--- outta the middle-class.”

Our unsung entrepreneurial heroes of America are no longer part of the national discourse, even though they were the ones who built our affluent middle-class, and helped so many of us to achieve the American Dream. Without a return of our small business owners and family farmers, the American Dream will be forever lost.

Entrepreneurs started and finished things; things that built an affluent and viable middle-class society, something the world has seen very little of.

The small businesses and family farms that made America the envy of the world, were largely made up of a dynamic, rugged, bright, hard-working lot of entrepreneurs, who fought for the common hope of us all: the American Dream. 

It was a dream of owning your own business, home or farm outright. It was an aspiration that desired but one family breadwinner, and a wife/mother who ran her household, taught her children the important things of life, sent her children to college, and generally ensured her little ones would enjoy a better life than hers, which was far better than what Americans are suffering through, today.

And the improved wages, lifestyle, and independence of women, known as Women’s Liberation, was made possible with an affluent middle-class, during the age of the entrepreneur. Affluence for women will be impossible once everyone, save the elite, are divested and dispossessed.

In any case Women’s Liberation has always been less about liberation, and more about the destruction of the family unit. Moreover, divorcing a tyrannical husband and struggling alone with growing children --while extremely difficult and unfair -- seems more possible than divorcing a despotic government, with armies and a police constabulary to back them up. And while Big Brother cares not a whit about liberating women, he lived in torment over the repeated successes of the entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurs organized, operated, and assumed the risks inherit in commercial ventures, something the average government employee could never do.

It was not government employees, or corporate bureaucrats, who made America great and the envy of the world; it was our vibrant entrepreneurial-class, that made us what we once were.

Not everyone possesses the spirit, drive, attitude, and qualities of a successful entrepreneur; and so, we must value them, as it is from them that come the fruits of their labors and ingenuity we all enjoy.  It is from enough successful entrepreneurs which spring an affluent middle-class.

American entrepreneurs were  thinkers, doers, competitors, innovators, who fueled economic growth, created jobs, and made a better, smarter world for us all. Entrepreneurs changed our beliefs about what was possible, with their lofty visions, and their will to obtain those dreams.

Entrepreneurs often risked their life’s savings, and the little they could borrow, to try untried ideas; but never did they asked for government bailouts when they failed.

Nor did our entrepreneurs ever ship our millions of jobs overseas, virtually condemning billions of foreigners to low-wage slavery, and our own nation to a no-wage bondage, controlled by trillionaire, investment bankers.

Entrepreneurs have long been the heredity nemesis of the International Monetary/Banking Cartel.  When America had some patriotic lawmakers, bureaucrats, and judges -- hundreds of thousands of American entrepreneurs and family farmers exacted a sort of retributive justice from the Cartel, by far out-producing the International Cartel’s mega-corporations.  The Cartel countered this, not with increased production, but with something far more sinister: Espionage!

The money-changers, whose ancestors were driven out of the Jerusalem Temple by Jesus, with a whip fashioned from fibers, slowly gained control of  “our” intelligence services, by which they gained control of all three branches of our federal government through fixed elections, bribes, blackmail, and assassinations.

Once in command of our entire federal government, the Cartel set out on their complete pillage and plunder of our middle-class and its entrepreneurs, with federal regulations, directives, laws, and taxes, all meant to eliminate all small business and family farms. The Cartel has succeeded with espionage, when they could have never succeeded with honest production, which has meant a dying economy for all Americans.

In the globalist, One-World Order agenda there must be no affluent nation that can feed itself, remaining independent of the global market and centralized world governance, free of the reins of power held by the International Monetary/Banking Cartel.

The American Dream, however, came true for many of us, and that’s a legacy we can and must pass on to our friends, children, grandchildren, and all future generations.  It’s proud heritage that we must keep alive. For it was possible once, and can be again … The American Dream.

The new American dream: every bankster in America swimming back to Israel with a lawyer under each arm.
