As the title says, the U.S. is no longer in the top 10 most prosperous nations. If Obama has his way, we won't even be in the top 100 most prosperous countries by the time he leaves office.
Read from the American Thinker:
Congrats, Barry. US falls out of top 10 most prosperous nations
You know that period between sleep and wakefulness where you're not quite sure you're still dreaming? I read this blog item at Powerline and had the exact same reaction:
Via InstaPundit, we learn that , does not rank as one of the world's ten most prosperous nations, as rated by London's Legatum Institute. The of the report found that the U.S.'s slippage is being driven by "a decline in the number of US citizens who believe that hard work will get them ahead." Well, they're right: in Barack Obama's America, hard work doesn't cause you to get ahead; being politically connected does. We are all paying the price for the corruption of the Age of Obama.Consistent with this finding is the fact that for the first time in history, the average Canadian is wealthier than the average American. Canada has a conservative government, and they have passed us like we are standing still. Which we are, at best.All of which raises the question: do Barack Obama and his minions want America to be one of the world's ten most prosperous countries? If you believe, as I do, that actions speak louder than words, the answer is No.
If this be a nightmare, someone please pinch me so I can wake up. This is incomprehensible to someone my age who grew up in a country that would always be free, prosperous, and strong.
This new reality makes me want to go back to sleep.
Did you notice which country has surpassed America in prosperity? Canada, the home of pro-Israel Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Harper is perhaps the biggest supporter of Israel of all foreign leaders. Do I need to remind you what Genesis 12:3 has to say about blessing the Jewish people? We are seeing that verse come to fruition both in Canada and the United States.
