The Fuerstenberger family of six is hardly feeling the recession despite neither parent currently working. This is because Germany — like many other nations in Europe — offers benefits such as short-time pay, parental leave and universal health care.
The fundamental difference is German other European people are very nationalistic and they want the best for their own people.

But you will never read this in the media as it is completely controlled by big money and certain lobbies.

You're the one who said the President was "the son of the Devil", "had to be stopped". You may want to avoid meeting this God you mock.
A healthy, powerful, nation has at least half of it's income going to the middle class. Forget the top and bottom 10%; they're set or doomed anyway, respectively.
If the game is rigged so almost all the money is diverted to a few pockets, there is nothing you can do to succeed. Living in a corrupt third world banana republic for example; your hard work is worth precisely jack squat.
In the US, the top 1% alone gets almost half of the wealth. The top 10% have over 70%.
About half of all Americans have to get by on less than 1% of the total.
That degree of inequality did not happen on merit, luck, hard work, skill. It happened by corruption.
