Why 11,000? Because for all their confusing talk of Trillions here and Trillions there the politicians want to keep your mind overwhelmed BUT if you just remember this one number - 11,000 you can easily put it all in perspective, not only for yourself but for anyone you talk to. So, what is the 11,000 and why is it important? It represents the $11,000 the government spends each and every year on EACH and EVERY American! That's right folks! OH...you didn't realize they spent so much on little old you? Of course you didn't...they never want you to break it down to an individual level...that reveals the pure INSANITY of what passes for responsible government. So as you sit, pondering who's right in this debate just keep in mind, even those talking about "cuts" of say, $1, $2 or even $3 Trillion over 10 years...do the math...... IT still equates to over $10,000 EACH. and then ask yourself, can our nation, can ANY nation survive with a government this out of control?
