Brother can you spare $30 trillion dollars?

All debts will be paid eventually. You instinctively know that  is true. You face it every day. There is that mortgage or rent every month. And that car payment. Or that Visa or Mastercard statement. But what if you have no money. You go bankrupt. Politicians of both parties don’t seem to know this concept.

Our superior intellectuals in Congress have built up a 30 TRILLION DOLLAR DEBT. That’s real debt. Not just something on paper or in a computer calculator. You are so busy with all the personal debt outlined above, not to mention trying to feed your family and gas up the Ford, that you can’t conceive of a debt of 30 trillion dollars. So let me put it into perspective for you.

Let’s say you have a hundred dollar bill. Hell, let’s that I have a hundred dollar bill. Fat chance. Okay, someone has lot of hundred dollar bills. If you laid 30 trillion of them end to end – they would encircle the earth (wait for it) ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTEEN THOUSAND TIMES. You read that correctly. One hundred and seventeen (117) times around the globe. That sounds like enough to cover the entire world, doesn’t it?

That’s what America owes to lenders worldwide. The problem is, America has no money. Which brings up two pertinent questions. Does America declare bankruptcy? AND what did you and I get for all that money? Is you life any better? Are your roads better? Your streets? Your city? Is your kid’s school any better? (Not if they are teaching kindergarteners about penises and vaginas and that looking at pornography is normal and fun.)

Remember, ALL debts will be paid. So who is going to pay off this thirty trillion dollar debt? Not the Democrats and swampy Republicans. They just keep passing it on and adding to it. A trillion here, a trillion there. Pretty soon we’re talking real money.

You and I can’t do it, we are too old. So that leaves your grandchildren and their children. They will never retire, own a home, a new car – they will be working until they die. Is there any hope for keeping them from being slaves? Yes, there is

You have to live within, your budget, don’t you? Why, then, should the government not have a budget and stick to it? Here’s why. If you are paying for lunch for a co-worker, you don’t allow him to order filet mignon. But if you are spending your boss’s money you don’t really care what the meal costs. The government is spending YOUR money, so they don’t care how much they waste.

Our government is as bloated as you are after Grandma’s Thanksgiving dinner. We have about 8 MILLION unelected government “workers.” If you stood them side by side that is the size of the Atlanta metro area. Obviously, we are overstocked with useless parasites. We are also inundated with far, far too many “agencies.” Their job is to make YOUR job more difficult.

Our out of control government has been at it too long to make it an easy job to get back to reality. But it can be done, and you can do it to save your grandchildren from becoming serfs. At every election, only SUPPORT candidates who are committed to a smaller, more realistic government. Ask them if they are America First politicians. And assure them that you and everyone you know will be watching their performance in DC. Threaten to oust them if they betray us. With enough decent, patriotic politicians your grandkids do have a future. It is up to you to make your desires known. Find the right people. Keep them accountable. And save America.
