Being poor in the richest nation

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


How could nearly 40 million United States (US) citizens live in poverty, when the US is the richest nation in the world? Do you know that half of the Puerto Ricans living in Puerto Rico (a US colony for the past 124 years) live in poverty too! The answer is that the US is not a democracy. The US government (USG) only represents 1% of its citizens. Click on the following link for more:

If she were a real democracy, no one would be living in poverty in the US. Why? Because the People’s Republic of China has eradicated poverty at home, and she has 4 times the population as the US!

The Chinese government did it by instituting programs to that end. The government used the wealth of Chinese’s capitalists to help finance those programs. The Chinese succeeded in eradicating poverty, because she governs for 100% of her people.

Here are some of the results of the USG representing only the 1%:

  1. US citizens living in poverty
  2. US being the epicenter of the coronavirus with over a million deaths
  3. 8 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens
  4. US wants a nuclear war with Russia and China to make the 1% richer by selling arms and stealing their resources
  5. And this list has no end

Both China and US citizens say that democracy is important. However, the Chinese, with a one party communist political system, are over 95% satisfied with their government. US citizens, with the multiparty “democratic” political system, are only 40% satisfied with their government! Who has the better “consent of the governed”?

Another big difference is that anybody who has the financial support of the 1% could hold a political office in the US. In China, meritocracy is the only way for one to occupy a political office. And that is why China will soon be the most powerful nation in the world.

And just like China has lifted all of her own people out of poverty, she will continue to be good to humanity by engaging in win-win negotiations with nations around the world.

US democracy has earned herself the world’s reputation of being the biggest threat to peace. China, in contrast, is universally known for spreading peace and prosperity to all.

China acts more democratic than the US.

Nací en NYC. Me mudé a Puerto Rico en el 1980 donde eventualmente me convertí en independentista al ver que PR no se administra para los boricuas. Me retiré tempranamente de la pedagogía para luchar 24/7 por la descolonización de Puerto Rico a través de marchas pacíficas anuales y empujar a la ONU hacer su trabajo. Necesitaremos un tsunami de gente protestando permanentemente para obligar a USA a cumplir con la ley internacional que prohíbe el coloniaje.
