    I guess I just don't get it. I suppose I see the importance in not being broke, but above all else?

    It's possible that sovereignty might be at stake?

    Not important, I know. Right?

    Why does the Debt mean so little to the left? This effects everyone in our Nation not just the takers.

    It only matters to Republicans when they're not in power. True story. :thup:

    Please explain to me what the debt means, other than an opportunity to invest in potentially helpful programs. Are the Chinese going to invade to collect their dues? Or is it just some number in the sky that some people can't take their eyes off of?

    Rhetorical questions, the mark of an imbecile with a weak position. An infantile logical fallacy and Embarrassing to the University.

    The same is true of Democrats. But... you know what.... no matter who is in power... IT MATTERS to smart Americans.

    Simple. Because there is a Democrat in the White House. The debt increases under Bush didn't bother them, nor did the debt increases under Reagan.

    "The era of big government is over," said the last President who had a surplus, Bill Clinton.

    He's missed.

    It leads to inflation, causing an excessive or persistent increase, and a decline in purchasing power. It has already started and we are headed for bankruptcy because of too much spending and borrowing.
