The National Debt

Published on 9/5/2011

THE NATIONAL DEBT It happens every four years and is a rite of passage for Americans. Every four years, the American citizenry is given the daunting task and responsibility of electing our next President. And a daunting task it is, indeed. It is the power that we are given to democratically elect the person that will guide us forward into the future, into the unknown, and into the unchartered waters, for better or for worse. We should feel fortunate to know that in this country, unlike any other country in the world, the voice of the people (a majority of them) rules supreme. But, really, how much power do we have? And why is it that less than 50% of eligible voters in the US even bother showing up at the polls? We know that it is not because of long lines, because the polls on Election Day open from 8 am to 8 pm or 9 pm in some states. The simple truth is that Americans are fed up with the current political system and they don’t feel that they have any power at all. Indeed, savvy politicians easily and routinely craft a direct order of the people to go RIGHT, as a direction to go LEFT, and a YES vote as a NO vote. So, in the end what are we left with? We are left in a paralyzing state of having no impact and no influence on the actions of federal government acting on our behalf. We are in essence a caricature of a favorite American pastime celebrated at the end of October. I am speaking of course of Halloween. As we all know, the objective of the game or event is to FOOL SOMEONE OR BE FOOLED YOURSELF. When it comes to a matchup between politicians and elected officials vs. WE THE PEOPLE, we have a terrible record. In baseball terms politicians are batting 6 out of 7. This time around, it begins anew; it is that time when we again play the game of TRICK OR TREAT. But, WAIT, can we afford to play this game. We are in unprecedented time in our history; the picture looks very bleak because of mounting problems. We have a national debt of 14.1 trillion, the interest on which totals 20% of the entire US government’s budget. In other words, 20% of all government expenditures go toward paying interest on the national debt. That’s not all folks, it gets worse. If you ask, how is the US able to pay the interest on its debt? The answer is, IT BORROWS IT (LOL). That’s right, folks, the US government is worse than a CRACK ADDICT OR A COCAINE ADDICT. It is completely INSANE, beyond CRAZY, and completely detached from reality. Oh, wait, excuse my mistake, REALITY does not apply to the all-powerful United States Congress and its IMPERIAL SENATE. One thing I know, and many people know this, we are going to be completely BANKRUPT, if we don’t stop doing what we are currently doing. There are more graphic and picturesque word I can use about where we are heading if we don’t get our government and the IMPERIAL SENATE, to come back to reality. And the question is for the next 14 months are we going to be FOOLED (tricked) or are we going to be treated to a federal government that begins to institute common sense and bring us to fiscal discipline and a long term path to growth and prosperity?
