I'm not really all that interested in politics, but all this recent talk about raising the debt ceiling seems crazy to me. Have we collectively lost it? Is our gov't insane?
So we raise the debt by $2.4 Trillion.
That's $8,000 per person in the US.
Seems the logical next step would be to require every family to cut a check to the gov't for $8,000 per family member to support this.
If you have a family of 4, you should have to send a check for $32,000.
Let's keep it simple.
Make Americans pay for the stupidity of the people they elect to represent them.
All this stuff about increasing taxes on the wealthy is stupid. Everyone has a vote, so if your representatives that you voted for in Washington are supporting this spending, you should be on the hook even if your broke.
If I were in Washington, I'd cut everything and lower taxes.
Get rid of Social Security, Medicare, and stop all the wars.
It would probably be really easy to cut spending if we were logical about it.
The whole concept of big government and redistribution of wealth is irritating to me.
Why can't people just take care of themselves, their families, their communities and give to charity as they see fit?
Gov't programs seem like forced enslavement to me.
We're so far away from being free, it's not even funny.
