It's not too late...
Most Americans don't think that Federal Debt is bad. They think it is just "funny money", and that because America's economic prowess has always been respected, that it will always be respected.
Because they're wrong. Ron Paul is explaining very clearly why we cannot afford to steep ourselves any further in debt, but only about 10% of Republicans are voting for him. I'm sadly sure that there are several others who think that he would make a great president, but they won't vote for him because (a) he can't win, or (b) he's against the war on terror, or (c) both.
In reality he can win, and he's not against the war on terror. And we need him desperately.
Because the Founding Fathers (The Founding Who?) thought that debt was such a bad thing, they required the United States to pay off all of its debts. The current debt of the United States would stagger George Washington or Thomas Jefferson.
The US' current debt is $7 trillion. That is 7 MILLION MILLION dollars. The additional, unfunded debt (not on the books) is over $50 trillion. We must reduce our debt somehow. If we don't, we won't be able to pay for health care for anybody.
Hell, we won't have health care for anybody.
There is only one person who would attempt to reduce the debt if elected. Ron Paul. Glenn Beck has illustrated the problem and what I think is the only solution.
TotalsIt is a late hour. The pundits and the punters have declared John McCain the Republican nominee. I'm not willing to give up just yet. Neither should you be.
$286.999 BILLION - Projected annual spending for Obama’s proposals
$218 BILLION - Projected annual spending for Clinton’s proposals
$7 BILLION - Projected annual spending for McCain’s proposals
$54 BILLION - Projected annual spending for Huckabee’s proposals
$150 BILLION (in savings) - Projected savings after Ron Paul eliminates most of the Government.
What this spending does
1. Push us deeper and further into debt at a time when we absolutely can’t afford it;
2. Reflect a particular paternalistic approach to governing—a true NANY STATE
3. Each proposal increases the absolute RAW power of government
For your future... For the future of your posterity... Vote for Ron Paul for President. Because the federal debt is not funny money.
