Being poor in America, is different then being impoverished in a third world country. The biggest difference is that in America the government has the ability to change that, but choose not to, instead they choose to have the greatest military, and like other countries the government must make sure they get paid more than the median income, in fact I would bet that the whole country other than them, could go poor, but guarantee the military and government would still be financially okay. Being poor anywhere in the world is hard. Believe this its only because there are some governments who are greedier than others. The money system has out lived its course, and it is up to us to reject their system, stop buying their goods, that make the rich, rich. This is because others believe they deserve more than others, and they run the world, fight it, or live it.
