Tyrannosaurus Debt. How many people realize the money for the economic stimulus does not exist? There is no real money to fund this. It will have to be borrowed. More debt. How can more debt fix debt?

United States Current Debt.

After 220 years of our current government, our nation is $11.7 trillion in debt. The Obama administration just announced that that debt will increase another $9 trillion over the next ten years -- $2 trillion more than they projected earlier this year.

In 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville said, "The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money."

Two other favorites of his:

- "Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude. "

- "In other words, a democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it."

It looks at though they want to bankrupt us. That's why we weren't suppose to have fulltime/lifelong politicians. They must not realize and understand what it takes to keep a budget or just not care. Sooner or later we will pay the piper.
