The scary part here is that what is going on in the U.S. right now is happening the world over.
The Peter G. Peterson Foundation has our real debt pegged at $56.4 trillion dollars, which basically means:
Right now, you are carrying a burden of about $184,000. That is each and every American’s share of the US government’s approximated $56.4 trillion in current obligations. And every year in which no down payments or reforms are made to these obligations, the total grows by $2 trillion to $3 trillion – or $6,600 to $10,000 per person – on autopilot.
When it comes to the Constitution and our country, you are the first line of defense.
As Principle #9 states: The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.
Our elected officials may forget this at times, so it is up to us to remind those who we sent to Washington and to our local offices that we expect them to represent OUR interests.
And, new opportunities to show your dissatisfaction are arising each day. If you’re worried about the direction in which we are headed than you need to do something. You need to make your voices heard. Same old same old is going to put us in a world of hurt – emphasis on world.
