Look, if you are an American citizen, and you don’t know about the national debt you should be ashamed. Just as we rack up the credit on the credit cards, we make our payments to avoid fees and legal issues, right?


What if your debt was a 9 followed by twelve zeroes? Huh? OK, look at it this way – $9,000,000,000,000.

This is the fiscal irresponsibility of the United States government. It is helping to drag down the value of the dollar, which helps to fuel inflation (oil and food prices). The budget was balanced under President Bill Clinton, but was destroyed by George W. Bush.

If our budget does not get balanced, and our debts get paid, our children will be crushed. Crushed by inflation, by debt, by national bankruptcy.

If you really care – and you should – you might consider getting in touch with your representatives and ask them to make this one of their priorities.
