No matter what this group of educated loons does, no matter what last minute agreements they hammer out, this August Body has shown itself to be completely out of control, time and again. Interestingly, even if we were to tax everyone in the country at a rate of 50%, it would still not be enough to put much of a dent in even the payment on interest that has to be made monthly! Even if the government, which owns 30% of the land in America, begins to sell off vast tracks to China (this I hear is in the works), our problem of over-spending will quickly render all such efforts useless.
The truth be told, America is now in full decline and the average citizen is being kept in the dark by a corrupt, jaded and frankly sick group of legislators whose sole purpose it is to keep the 'party' going for as long as is possible. Their slogan could be, 'Let the party on Capitol Hill continue and who really cares about the poor sots that will be left behind the pick up the tab'. That’s the truth, as I see it, and everyone please know that it hurts me to have to say it. I love my country deeply and it hurts to watch it fall.
Think I'm mistaken? Let any knowledgeable person look me in the eye and tell me that we/re not broke beyond belief. Let that same person tell me that ‘things are going to improve’, that ‘I’ll be taken care of in my old age’, that there is ‘hope for our children’ and brother I’ll know then that there are pigs are flying right over my head!
