AMERICANS OUT OF CONTROL SPENDING. Americans living beyond their means. Americans are as guilty as the government for the present economically failure. Americans spent money they did not have, borrowing from credit cards, taking out second loans on their homes, and unnecessary spending. Buying homes they could not afford on their incomes. Defaulting on credit cards and loans bankrupting banks, auto industries, etc. Buying bigger and more expensive homes, cars and more expensive electronics year after year for ourselves and our children. Americans are accomplices with the Government for the failing economy. We are teaching our children the same bad habits. I have used the same cell phone for the past ten years. $500 for a cell phone that tells you when to go to the bathroom? And when Americans defaulted they look to their accomplice, Government, to bail them out causing more Government spending. We have to live within our mean just like Government must live within its means. Americans and government need to get back to basic. Responsible spending. I live and save on Social Security of $900. I went from paying $600 for rent to paying $200 because it was affordable for me. My daughter pays $2200 on a mortgage on her $40,000 salary alone. Not responsible. Jesus and Muhammad both taught modesty and we must take care of our own first then give excess to the poor. Not to take care of people here illegally at the expense of our own. Charity begins at home. We will always have the poor among us and they should come before the worlds. We are feeding children of illegal aliens and we have one million homeless and hungry children of our own. We are building roads and bridges in the Middle East and ours are falling down. We are making it easier for children of illegal aliens to get an education and making it harder for our own. 1 Tim 5;4,8. Certainly if anyone does not provide for those who are his own, and especially for those who are members of their own household, he has disowned the faith and is worse than a person without faith.
