Ok I have 3 very simple questions: 1) How many of you really understand how much 1 Trillion or 10 Trillion dollars is. Or national Debt is TEN THOUSAND BILLION DOLLARS a Billion being 1000 Million. Or Around 33000 dollars per person in the USA. Divide 10 trillion by 300 Million You will get 33,333.333333333333333 2) If the Democrats maintain or increase their control of the Congress and Obama has 2 terms. In 8 years how much Debt do you believe they will accumulate? My guess is if Obama has 8 years with the Dems in Control of Congress the whole time. They will come close to doubling the Current Debt for a total of 20 Trillion. 3) How much Debt is to much? At what point will our Debt load become to much to bare and cause catastrophic Economic and Currency collapse? IMO the answer is a number lower than we are already at. We are already seeing the disastrous effects of Years of Deficit spending. Tight Credit markets, Falling Dollar Values. IMO We are very near a Point of No return, a Critical Mass. Where our Currency value will collapse. Today it is down, but still among the most valuable in the world. I am talking about a collapse that will make our money worth a fraction of what it is today. Basically we would become a 3rd world nation. The signs are all around us. The Credit markets and Falling dollar values as I said. The fact that it is becoming harder and harder to sell US bonds, Which is how we sell the Debt. the Interest alone on what we owe now is = to what our entire National Budget was just a few short years ago. So I would say we can not spend any more or we face ruin. We have added 3.7 Trillion in New Debt since 2007, and are well on our way to making that an even 5 trillion in 2 years. We also have Tens of Trillions. With a T, in up coming unfounded obligations through SS, Medicare, and Medicaid. So please give me a chance to understand your mindset. I mean I know many of the Things you all want to spend on are noble. Some are good ideas even, but answer me these 3 questions would you please?
