Our Country is Addicted to Debt

Right now we are in the worst economic situation in the history of the United States and “debt” is to blame. Many politicians make claims that they will enact certain laws and regulations that will reduce the “deficit”. In reality, reducing the deficit will not do anything to pull us out of this recession. The government itself needs to reduce the debt as a whole. Just last year the federal government paid $413 billion in interest payments. That’s more than the amount the government spent on all of the departments listed below..COMBINED:

Since 1988 our government has spent $8 trillion in interest payments ALONE! This money goes to several different countries which makes their economies prosper (china being the prime example) and ours dwindle. To be it into perspective, $8 trillion is enough money to give every single tax payer in this country a lotus dream car. The scariest part of all this is that the nonpartisan congressional budget office predicts that our interest payments will reach $1.1 trillion per year by 2021. The video below gives a hands on direct overview of what kind of trouble we are. Wake up world, time for a movement in our conscious awareness:

  1. I wonder, what would you do with a trillion dollars? Would you waste it on dream homes and yachts and diamonds? Or would you take that money and start to make some changes? With a trillion dollars we could very easily begin to reshape the face of the earth. But only if this money is given to someone trustworthy. Someone who refuses to live in greed.

    I wonder, are the bankers the type of people that have proved themselves to be trustworthy?

    The UK has similar issues, governmental and personal debts are at the highest ever our PM recently vetoed a EU treaty that would have added to our problems, but most people here don’t understand or care what is going on so they have been brainwashed by our lefties that what he has done is bad for the country. I don’t see how saving us from being responsible for the fiscal deficits of 27 other nations is bad for us!? Despite being in the throws of a double-dip recession people are still spending, living beyond their means – I wonder who will be crying when their homes are being repossessed, and who they will be blaming!! It sucks that people don’t and won’t take responsibility for their own actions.

    I would be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to say Ron Paul 2012. The only candidate with a plan to get rid of the debt.

    Wow, way to be pussies! This is America! We rock and we do some rollin’. Like in the doe! All these big words like recession and deficit, I mean, the only deficit I see is your Americanhood. First off, the dude in the video is fat, maybe he needs a deficit in his food intake instead of going all liberal on our asses. This dude cries more than Mel Gibson in all of his movies combined. Second, you are taking about “lotus” dream car, I mean “lotus” is that even English? Who the hell is driving insects from Egypt? Next, who does this dude think he is knocking on Wal-Mart? Obviously has never been or he would know whats up. You know, like how it has everything! You want Milk? Got it! You want a gun? Got it! You want condoms? Got it! You want a flat screen? Got it! You can drink milk and get strong muscles so you can hold a shotgun, shoot a gun, while flexing your own personal guns you got from drinking milk to impress the ladies, go home with one and slay it like a champ, and then watch some goddamn football on your brand new flat screen! Sure sounds like paradise to me so how about you stop yo bitchin’ and go out there and make some money off of poor people like any good American would! Amen.

    • Cam you have a pretty distorted view of what reality and America really is. I suggest you read all of our posts and form your own opinion. There is a lot of shit that goes on that you don’t think is really happening, but it is. You have to learn the truth. You have to want to learn the truth because the truth is the only thing that will ever be. I feel like you and the rest of our “fellow Americans” have been too brainwashed by society.

    We are not addicted to debt as much as we are addicted to survival. As wages continue to shrink and more jobs are off shored creating less opportunity for higher paying construction and manufacturing jobs and the ancillary jobs that spin off from those enterprises. Families are forced to buy cheaper goods that are generally made in foreign lands and sold to them by companies like Wal Mart who employ many people at an ever lower wage. We took the bait and now we are screwed. Six descendents of Sam Walton controll more wealth than the bottom 30% of American wage earners and no matter how generous they are or how much they spend the majority of their money has been pulled out of the economy. It is not being used to create the quantity of jobs required to get the economy moving or public works projects or fund programs that provide for the general welfare. Everybody loves the freemarket economy that sucks money out of the system and for better or worse is hoarded because it can’t posibly be spent by one or two people, but we hate the government when it sucks money out of the system to pay for education, medicine, hospitals, defense, roads, law enforcement and social security for the elderly, young or disabled.
