19.4 Trillion Dollars In Debt – We Have Added 1.1 Trillion Dollars A Year To The National Debt Under Obama

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Debt Debt And More Debt - Public DomainIn 2006, U.S. Senator Barack Obama’s voice thundered across the Senate floor as he boldly declared that “increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.”  That was one of the truest things that he ever said, but just a couple of years later he won the 2008 election and he turned his back on those principles.  As I write this article, the U.S. national debt is sitting at a grand total of $19,402,361,890,929.46.  But when Barack Obama first entered the White House, our federal government was only 10.6 trillion dollars in debt.  That means that we have added an average of 1.1 trillion dollars a year to the national debt under Obama, and we still have about six more months to go.

Even though Barack Obama is on track to be the first president in all of U.S. history to not have a single year when the U.S. economy grew by 3 percent or better, many have still been mystified by the fact that the economy has been relatively stable in recent years.

But the explanation is rather simple, actually.  Anyone can live like a millionaire if the credit card companies will lend them enough money.  You could even do it yourself.  Just go out and apply for as many credit cards as possible and then spend money like there is no tomorrow.  In no time at all, you will be living the high life.

Of course many of you would immediately object that a day of reckoning would come eventually, and you would be right.  Just like for those that abuse credit cards, a financial day of reckoning is coming for America too.

In the United States today, our standard of living is being massively inflated by taking trillions of dollars of future consumption and moving it into the present.  The politicians love to do this because it makes them look good and they can take credit for an “economic recovery”, but what we are doing to our children and our grandchildren is beyond criminal.

On average, we are stealing more than 100 million dollars from future generations of Americans every single hour of every single day.  We are complete and utter pigs, and yet most Americans don’t see anything wrong with what we are doing.

At this point, our national debt is more than 30 times larger than it was just 40 years ago, and many (including myself) have argued that it is now mathematically impossible for the U.S. government to ever pay off all of this debt.

The only thing that we can do now is to keep the party going for as long as possible until the day of reckoning inevitably comes.

Under Obama, our national debt will come close to doubling.  What that means is that during Obama’s eight years we will accumulate almost as much debt as we did under all of the other presidents in U.S. history combined.

Right now, the U.S. government is responsible for about a third of all the government debt in the entire world.  Fortunately the financial world continues to lend us gigantic mountains of money at ridiculously low interest rates, but if that were to ever change we would be in an enormous amount of trouble very rapidly.

For instance, if the average rate of interest on U.S. government debt simply returns to the long-term average, we would very quickly find ourselves spending more than a trillion dollars a year just in interest on the national debt.

And as the Baby Boomers age, our “unfunded liabilities” threaten to absolutely swamp us.  By the year 2025, it is being projected that “mandatory” federal spending on “unfunded liabilities” such as Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare plus interest on the national debt will exceed total federal revenue.  What that means is that we will spend every penny we bring in before a single dollar is spent on the military, homeland security, paying federal workers, building roads and bridges, etc.

In recent years the Federal Reserve has also had a “buy now, pay later” mentality.

While Obama has been in the White House, the size of the Fed balance sheet has grown by about two and a half trillion dollars.  The goal has been to artificially pump up the economy, but when the Federal Reserve creates money out of thin air it is actually a tax on all of us.  The purchasing power of every dollar that we will spend in the future has been diminished thanks to the Fed, but most Americans don’t understand this.

What most Americans want is for someone to “fix things” in the short-term, and not much consideration is ever given to the long-term damage that is being done.

I know that the phrase “trillion dollars” is thrown around a lot these days, and to a lot of people it doesn’t have a whole lot of meaning anymore.  But the truth is that it is an absolutely enormous amount of money.  In fact, if you went out right this moment and started spending one dollar every single second, it would take you more than 31,000 years to spend one trillion dollars.

A final example of our “buy now, pay later” mentality can be seen in our ridiculously bloated trade deficit.  We consume far more than we produce as a nation, and we buy far more from the rest of the world than they buy from us.  As a result, tens of thousands of businesses and millions of good paying jobs have gone overseas, and many of our formerly great manufacturing cities are now vast industrial wastelands.  Our economic infrastructure has been gutted at a pace that is staggering, and yet most Americans still don’t understand what has been done to them.

If you visit your typical “big box” retail store today, where is most of the stuff made?  Instinctively, most of you would answer “China”, and that is not too far from the truth.

We buy far, far more stuff from China then they buy from us.  This makes them steadily wealthier, and it makes us steadily poorer.  Unfortunately, our trade deficit with China has gotten much, much worse while Barack Obama has been in the White House.

At the end of Barack Obama’s first year in office, our yearly trade deficit with China was 226 billion dollars.  Last year, it was more than 367 billion dollars.

Are you starting to see a trend?

Our long-term economic and financial problems have greatly accelerated under Barack Obama, but our leaders feverishly work to make things look okay in the short-term and so most Americans don’t notice what is happening.

Unfortunately, this Ponzi scheme cannot go on forever and a day of reckoning is coming.  And when it arrives, the pain that it is going to cause for ordinary Americans is going to be far greater than most of us would dare to imagine.

    For those who think Trump will solve the debt problem if he becomes president, you’ll be greatly disappointed. He knows the debt is unpayable. And he has said that this nation will never default on the debt because we can print money! Trump won’t abolish the Fed!

    The only difference between Trump and Hillary is that a Hillary presidency will mean a quicker demise!

    • Raymond Chow

      Print to hyperinflation and devalue the USD; then, payoff the debt with devalued USD. Problem solved since there’s no other way out. Default is coming no matter how you do it.

      • Guest

        So killing what’s left of the U.S. Dollar solves the problem? You must be a Ph.D. economist. I hear the Fed is hiring.

      Trump will nibble around the edges for the first year or 2,…he has no choice,our whole society & economy are a big house of cards.If Trump makes big moves fast this house of cards will break apart & lead to anarchy & chaos!
      There are many other problems besides this debt,which can only end in default,but our creditors around the world will also default. We will survive by a process of addition by subtraction,..everyone else will be in worse shape then we are.
      America will win the global economic beauty contest by being the least ugly!

      All this except for one possibility,…total world wide war.
      then all bets are off!

        Not really. The majority of Trump supporters have finally, maybe, too late to turn back now (sounds like an old song), awoke, to the fact that their offspring is in deep do do, and with billery at the helm, it will be a slow sinking ship like the Titanic, and the lifeboats have already sailed.

      Neither Trump or Hillary is running for president to solve anybody’s problem. They are running to solve their own problem. They want power, grandeur and history.

      • black heart

        Hillary is running to stay out of the federal pen. It’s vital she be elected to avoid prosecution of herself and Bill.

        No politician can even nibble around the edges of the bloated spending problem. In Newt’s first term as Speaker he tried and got accused of “starving children” for his efforts. Then Hillary stole the FBI files on him and he fell in line.

        Unfortunately, the system will have to collapse before real reform can happen.

    Hey Listen! It takes a lot of money to create false flag attacks to enslave the minds of the American people. It takes a lot of money to infiltrate the educational system and propagandize mainstream media. It takes a lot of money to create a fake space program. It takes a lot of money to buy votes. Running a tyrannical oligarchical government takes a lot of money.

    • JC Teecher

      I agree on the Space Program thing. Can anyone tell me how anything ever having to do with the space program and supposed lunar landings have helped humanity?

      Still waiting……………..that is what i thought….nada!

      Then there is all those so-called studies that determines the angle of monkey feces as it hits the ground from 50 ft up. Then there is the pork barrel projects that are appropriated by politicians, for politicians, and the kick backs.

      The list goes on and on and on, and is done by both parties/elites/establishment.
      People have been asleep at the wheel; no wait, they never even went into the wheel house. They allowed the elite to steer the ship, and pick up debt and waste everyday since they killed Kennedy.

      It will stop though. The day of reckoning is fast approaching. Either by divine intervention, or by our own doing, it doesn’t matter, for it will soon come.
      And; when it does, the wealthy will somehow get out of paying a dime, and it will be saddled on the backs of the working class.

      But there is a day coming when “everyone”, even the wealthy, has to give an account of all their works or lack thereof, as every knee will bow and some will say “Lord I am sorry I ever doubted your existence, and I am sorry i ever mocked you”.

      Then everything gets real serious for the high and mighty atheists, liberals, and mockers of His laws.

      • none

        The space program did help out humanity!
        Just ask the Russians! It saved them trillions of dollars, after we turned it over to them.
        The Russian people thanked U.S. for raising their standard of living.

        • Orac4Prez

          Ummm, All I hear on the news is everyone wants to ban Christian signs, posters references to god (incl (God) and especially Jesus) so good luck. Tolerance has long gone. And I hear Christians say “someone” should do something, but its never them, even if they are in a position of power or authority. Good luck. Of course, when the US goes to war with China, Australia will one of the first places to fall down the plug hole financially. Most of our exports go there!

          • sistersoldier

            Christians don’t rely on luck – we rely on faith. God has plans, not problems as He is above and not beneath, “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts” Although tolerance may be disappearing you can trust that God always has a remnant in the earth “that have not bowed to Baal and every mouth that has not kissed him.” these are they who know their God and will do great exploits and many will be martyred for that same faith. True Christianity is not for the faint of heart it requires blood born soldiers that are committed to the cause of Christ and the advancement of His kingdom.

            On the other hand I think that you are correct about Australia. When it goes — it will all fall like dominoes. One by one until they fall under the control of a one world leader of the new world order beast system.

  • rant1200 .

    Let’s not forget that when bush took office the national debt was 5T.When he left,it was 12T.What’s compounded the problem was the 1.3T dollar tax cut for the 1%’ers.Also he started a war of CHOICE in Iraq which cost another 1T that was off the books.So before you start yammering about how Obama caused all this,might be a good idea to read some recent history.

    • Da_Neutral_Observer

      Neither the author nor anyone else is “yammering about how Obama caused all this.” That fiction is all in your head. The point is, Obama made it MUCH WORSE! He has increased the debt by the same amount — $7 trillion — that Bush did and with similar (virtually non-existent) results. At least Dubya was honest about it. Barack tries to pretend things have actually improved under his leadership. What a farce!

    • Rhialto the Marvellous

      Wow, Hussein Obama must be all goodness and light then. Let’s all ignore the debt he’s added, our reduced standing in the world, the riots, terrorist attacks and allowing Iran a path to the atomic bomb too!
      Oh – and his opening up of the borders must be for our betterment, huh?

            I would be willing to bet that it is purely for the self-gratifications.
            If it were physically impossible for men to go into other men in the pooper, I would be willing to wager that 90% would not even think about being g8y.

            There is nothing sinful about loving another man, but acting out on it s8xu88y, is an abomination.

            My uncle was queer and was a super nice guy, that was fun to be around. He was compassionate and was always ready to give a hand to those in need. He was also a wounded VietNam veteran, and father to a beautiful young woman.

            He just could not put God and His laws first in his life, but rather gave in to perversion as a way of life because of his idolization of queer s8x. That lifestyle put up a wall between he and His Creator. He is now in one of two places, and awaiting judgment. He died of AIDS about ten years ago.

      In 1917 the debt was only 5 billion.
      By the end of 1919 it was over 27 billion.
      The federal reserve was getting well established by then…coincidence?
      The debt stabilized somewhat, for a few years, then grew by billions each year until early ’82, when it hit a trillion for the first time.

      Ignorant people boast that Clinton eliminated the national Debt. What he did was to increase the taxes on people so much that he could have a balanced budget, but not eliminate or decrease the national debt.
      More smoke and mirrors if he gets back in.

    • Douglas M. Green

      $10.6 trillion when Bush left office. So Bush essentially added $5 trillion of debt and Obama $10 trillion of debt when he leaves office. Obama’s legacy -Twice the debt…….and half the growth!

  • Preacher62

    Acts 2:38 Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

    • watchmannonthewall

      I remember a number of years ago, a time when I was over 5 different ministries in church, and teaching membership and baptism classes, and I felt that God was telling “someone” to repent. I shared it with pastor and he was as lost as a goose in a snowstorm, had no idea what I was talking about.

      I figured God must have meant for me to “repent” and so I just prayed a simple little prayer: “God, I don’t really know what it is I am supposed to repent of since it seems I am doing everything pastor and Your Word seem to say. Still, I know I can”t be that good! If You show me what it is I am dong wrong, I will obey You and change the things You show me.”

      WOW!! Did things ever change for me! All of the sudden God began bringing people and teachings to me regarding those passages of Scripture that I thought only “others” had to follow ( you know, the Sabbath, GOD”S Feastivals, what Paul really said inthe NT and what the RCC changed about what God said to HIS people, you know, like regarding clebrting Easter and Christmas, instead of Passove and Sukkot) and as I began to obey the Master, He began to open my eyes to my sin. For much of the next two years He showed me one thing after another in my life that He wasn’t happy with. I doubt if anyone else, or at least very few, had any idea. Most everything dealt with was an attitude or heart issue, only those things dealing with His special days were outward manifestions of sin, as written in His Word. But He also bgan to focus me on my attitudes towards others and my inner reactions of their behavior towards me.

      Now I understand the Proverb about keeping “your heart with all diligence, for out of it come the issues of life.” Of course, Jesus talked about the very same thing when He said what comes out of the heart is what defiles a man, not what goes into him. We all need the ‘new heart” He promised to those in the ‘new covenant” who belong to Him, don’t we?? I pray for one nearly every day! When He appears, I will get mine!!

      • Preacher62

        Amen. Sadly, The broad road that leads to American Christianity and eventually Hell, no longer includes repentance which is turning from sin and turning to God. SO many who believe themselves to be saved but yet continue in their sexual immoralities, greed and materialism. If you have turned from your sin (repented) then the word says that you already have your new heart. “A heart of flesh so that they will obey my statutes.” This is regeneration, being born again, being saved, circumcision of the heart, whatever term one desires to use. It is all of God and none of man. Be blessed and stay on the wall.

        • GV

          “…yet continue in their sexual immoralities….”

          ……..sound of crickets chirping

          • Preacher62

            God will condemn them as he will all sin. Yes those are sinful as well and are covered in the prior post under the greed and materialism heading which are the root of such wars. I guess you missed the rest of the post, what with you being fixated on genitalia and all

          • Preacher62

            Well what do you think causes war crimes Einstein? Irregardless sexual immorality will reap the same punishment as said war crimes whether you want to accept it or not. You are spending far too much time looking for some sin that is worse than your own so that you can feel justified. Perhaps repentance and contrition would be a much better avenue for your guilty conscience. Repent and believe the Gospel and you too can be saved.

          • GV

            you got called on your utter lack of condemnation of war crimes and now you put out the BS that you generally mentioning “greed and materialism” was meant to cover it.

            “… Perhaps repentance and contrition would be a much better avenue for your guilty conscience….”

        Life and death are in the power of the tongue. Change your words- change your world. It takes less than three seconds to say, “I’m sorry God, please forgive me.” May He grant you those few precious seconds before you take your last breath and step out of this dimension into eternity.

        “Moreover, man (mankind) does not know his (her) time: like fish caught in a treacherous net and birds trapped in a snare, so the sons (and daughters) of men are ensnared at an evil time when it suddenly falls on them.”

  • Preacher62

    Jesus said, “You must be born again”. Those that have been born again no longer concern themselves with things of earth, our focus is on things of Heaven. If concerns over your earthly portfolio are more important to you than the souls of your next door neighbors or the people you work with, I suggest repentance as your utmost need.

    • A sinner saved by grace

      Yes, we should be concerned about others, but all we can do is share the truth. We cannot make another person believe. The “gospel” that is so prevalent today, which is another gospel that Paul warned about, says that one must believe in order to be born again. Wrong! Faith is the result of regeneration. As Jesus stated to Nicodemus, the wind blows where it wills and one hears the sound of it but does not know where it comes from or where it goes, so is everyone that is born of the Spirit. (John 3:8) Regeneration is the sovereign work of the Holy Spirit without any means or any participation on the part of the one acted upon. The gospel is only good news to those who are already born again. To everyone else it is foolishness. (1 Cor. 1:18) As a physically dead corpse cannot resurrect itself to physical life, so a spiritually dead sinner cannot resurrect himself to spiritual life.

      • Preacher62

        I agree 100 percent with everything you said. Does not change the commission given by our Lord to abandon this world and go and make disciples. As you said, no one can choose to do this but it is proof that one has been chosen by God. Be blessed.

    The economic policy of the U.S. is to do everything necessary to allow infinite creation of money. This of course is irrational.

    But more and more, major powers of the world are moving away from using the U.S. dollar, for reserve and for trade. They are just being rational.

    What will this lead to? Why it will lead to big wars between the U.S. and other big powers. Because the military is the final (but most people say first) tool the U.S. have when pushed against a wall. It may work out like WW2. Or it may work out like WW2 the other way around. The real solution to America’s problems will arrive after this war.

    I hope you are not the 100 million who will perish and won’t enjoy the solution.

          Some of the mummified corpses, were dated about 4 thousand years old. What was fascinating was that mitochondrial DNA was analyzed and it was determined that the people were Caucasian crosses and some DNA could not be identified as Human.
          Wow, that brings about the possibilities of those being early hybrids/gebborh, from the Nephilim mixing with the daughters of Adam/fair skinned females.

        The Gog Magog event will be primarily led by Russia, but will be a Federation of armies, Iran/Islamic, and possibly some Syrians, with a heavy Chinese influence. As I have studied the wording and layout of the event intensely, my unctions from the Holy Spirit comes with a unique understanding that the event will take place as the armies come into Alaska to make their charge.

        But; in Alaska, they will die…all but one sixth of the total army will be crushed, literally, by the Hand of Almighty God. The Ice sheets and blocks weighing up to 180 lbs. will do the work and USA will not have to lift one finger.

        Then reality will set in for most that have eyes to see, that the end is near, at that point. Many, many will turn from their evil ways and repent to accept salvation.

    What the Democrats don’t understand is, while the Democratic Party is preaching that they are for the Middle Class and working people, they are actually for the top 1%. They are the Party dedicated to keeping the few mega-rich establishment players at the top in power:

    Dodd-Frank has done little to benefit the 99%. It has allowed the mega-rich bankers and corporations to drive out of business many small and middle sized competitors = The 1% gets richer.

    ObamaCare has provided health coverage to approx. 15 million more of the 45 million uninsured; mostly those who before were uninsurable. But a consequence has been to drive a lot of small and medium sized businesses out of business lessing the competition for the mega-rich companies who have the resources to conform to ObamaCare = The 1% gets richer.

    While the Democrats are pushing for a $15 Minimum Wage that will kill job creation and lead to more unemployment, they want illegal immigration. That provides a pool of workers willing to work for $8 an hour or even less cash-under-the-table. The equivalent of slave-labor today = The 1% gets richer.

      However; greed has ruled the day with politics and big business, and corruption and back door deals that stink of cronyism, through bought off politicians.

      The democrats in politics/liberals, aren’t even for the top 1%, they are for themselves and the NWO agenda that is called the Beast System in the Holy Word. Knowingly or un-knowingly, it doesn’t matter, because that system is being set up for the ruling, by Satan’s spirit, as Antichrist, and the Democrats/as with their liberal mindset, and a large percentage of Republicans (like the Bushs/Cruzs/Kasich/Boehner/Romney/etc are part of that Beast System as well. Throw in the Rothschild Banking Empire, and you can see the connections.

      It is a Big pot of brewing evil stew, that spews out lie after lie and cover up after cover up. That stew is not dependent upon one particular group or party, but an inclination and lifestyle of worldism and evilness, within the minds and hearts of those that keep stirring that pot.

    The art of horticulture demonstrates that if we want to stimulate growth, produce more fruit, foliage or blooms and to prevent premature death of the plant, we must prune it. If the plant is weak or dying then we cut back vigorously! Likewise with our weak economy and all of the offshoots of “unfunded liabilities”. The money tree requires fiscal pruning. Unless something cataclysmic occurs first on a global scale that alters our way of life, then I suspect that the next generation will be indentured servants to a debt they did not create.

    The most effective reasons for pruning also applies to fiscal budgets and withering economies. The only thing stopping the powers that be from administering sound economic policies is their lust for elite super wealth status and to retain power for the purpose of controlling the masses.

    Change your beliefs! Wake up! Denying what is going on has its consequences! The earth is revolving around its axis, even if you don’t care, and one day follows the other for the big, very big day of reckoning to arrive. And you still believe that your way of thinking, your way of seeing life, politically, economically, religiously, is correct. You reap what you sow, that is correct, and that is what happens to sleeping beings that don’t see reality, because they imagine castles in the sky! Wake up! Change your beliefs! What is correct and what is wrong is relative! What is correct for you doesn’t worry or affect God, as you are taught to believe! You can be a killer, a murderer, a torturer of human beings, like the american soldiers are, after Bush not honouring the Geneva Convention. You can be a terrorist, and that is fine to God, because he/she/it honours free will, His Creation. But what you believe in has its consequences. Wake up! Let’s unite, instead of pointing to the “guilty” ones. We are all one, not individuals of more value than others, races, nations, etc. America became great when it was believed that we are all created equal. Obama is the same as Osama in the eyes of God.

      • Ricardo Fontanot

        God always forgives, more than that, God doesn’t need to forgive, but some men and women need to be forgiven, so God forgives them. Always, no matter what they did or did not, they are forgiven, even before they commit what seems to be unforgiveable. God forgives, menkind often doesn’t. But that is the primitive, false understanding of God. God is made to the image of Humans by Humans. But God’s point of view is that Humans are Made To The Image of God. Humans care about power (and money or whatever makes them powerful), and the biggest issue in misunderstanding God is to allow Humans to follow those that “know” about God, but who only want to excercise power over other “less valueable”, “more sinful”, etc., etc., etc., human beings. Remember what made (in the past, of course, when God was taken more into consideration and the American Constitution was founded) The USA great: “We Are All Created Equal”. In God’s Eyes there are no better human beings compared to other human beings. There are less evolved live beings than others. But it is no problem to be in Kindergarten compared to University. Evolution is the Path of Creation. At the end of the path, life after life, after life, after life, every single soul will reunite from were it started the incredible journey. And God is pleased, will be pleased then and was always pleased with His Creation. The contrary of Love is Fear. I Am not afraid at all to be or not to be forgiven by God, for I believe in Love, not in Fear. If you are willing to watch The Truth, and don’t follow primitive religious believes, simply observe, or study Reality. “We are All Created Equal” made America the strongest country on Earth, a simple fact recorded in History. Nowadays America is not respected at all around the world, and it is falling into the abyss, and you see Donald Trump looking down on others, Hillary Clinton lying in a more corrupt Democratic Party than Mexico’s politicians ever were. The consequences? Not Greatness, but whatever you want to call it for America. God’s point of view makes His Creation look great (it is always great, but for menkind it may look great or not, depending on you being more or less Godlike). Menkind’s point of view: “Success in Business”, instead of “Success in Human Values like Love and Understanding” makes His Creation look lousy, as menkind nowadays look upon America.

      The Federal Reserve is the worse hidden tax on our labor. We will never pay off the national debt because of the way the Federal Reserve works.

    The national debt is irrelevant. The amount you pay in taxes is irrelevant. What does matter is the purchasing power of your take home pay. The lobbyists force the politicians to pass laws creating cartels and monopolies in exchange for campaign financing. There are laws that enslave men. There are laws that set them free.

        Hospitals are worse than the Pentagon with what they charge. Healthcare premiums have gone up 20% per year for 20 years now. Obamacare has done absolutely nothing to slow down the healthcare inflation. The CEOs who administrate the benefits also own the hospitals. It’s pure corruption. The healthcare cartel charges whatever they want.

    The 10 PLANKS stated in the Communist Manifesto and some of their American counterparts are…

    2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

    Americans know this as misapplication of the 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913, The Social Security Act of 1936.; Joint House Resolution 192 of 1933; and various State “income” taxes. We call it “paying your fair share”.

    5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

    Americans call it the Federal Reserve which is a privately-owned credit/debt system allowed by the Federal Reserve act of 1913. All local banks are members of the Fed system, and are regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) another privately-owned corporation. The Federal Reserve Banks issue Fiat Paper Money and practice economically destructive fractional reserve banking.

    6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.

    Americans call it the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) mandated through the ICC act of 1887, the Commissions Act of 1934, The Interstate Commerce Commission established in 1938, The Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Communications Commission, and Executive orders 11490, 10999, as well as State mandated driver’s licenses and Department of Transportation regulations.

    10. Free education for all children in public schools.

    Americans are being taxed to support what we call ‘public’ schools, but are actually “government force-tax-funded schools ” Even private schools are government regulated. The purpose is to train the young to work for the communal debt system. We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based “Education” . These are used so that all children can be indoctrinated and inculcated with the government propaganda, like “majority rules”, and “pay your fair share”. WHERE are the words “fair share” in the Constitution, Bill of Rights or the Internal Revenue Code (Title 26)??

    I think the Manifesto was designed to let greed get the debt up to the point where the country implodes and then the worker’s paradise is fulfilled. The trouble with a long, slow death is it isn’t recognized for what is unless you see the model here as a form of attack.

      Based on wealth inequality we are about as far as you can get from communism. With all the outsourcing of government we are pretty much as far away from state ownership of anything. What communism are you talking about because I don’t see it.

  • alan

    First thing they need to do is stop reporting on this debt. Then they can expand it up to a 100 trillion or what ever they need. No one wants the music to stop on their watch.

    • df NJ

      Just raise taxes. The economy already sucks. Any company selling products in this country should pay an alternate minimum 1% tax on gross sales or they can’t do business here. Too many companies pay zero taxes.

      • Orac4Prez

        Actually just remove all of the exceptions/deductions and make it a flat sales tax with no income tax. That way everyone pays for goods. Same for services. Of course, that would never suit politicians who want to control what and where you can spend money. It would reduce distortions caused by all the corporate benefits.

  • CrooksWithoutBorders

    Last September the Federal Government hid +350 billion of spending so that the deficit would be $650 billion instead of a trillion. Given this year’s open ended budget into March 2017 we should be around $1.5 trillion at the end of September.

    • df NJ

      Time to cut military spending. All the trillions we spend did absolutely nothing to prevent 9/11. What’s the point of spending so much money when we get so little return on our investment. Time to close the 700+ foreign military bases that did absolutely nothing to prevent 9/11. Relocate the bases on our southern borders to keep the illegals out.

    Easily fixed, just borrow 20 Trillion pay it off and the Clock resets to zero, borrow 21 Trillion to pay off the 20 Trillion and the clock resets again, Just repeat to infinity.

      It still stays on the ledger as a debt. I suggest a large eraser! 🙂 or start another war and do what corrupt companies do. Once it has been acquired, transfer the debt and write off the assets. Once that’s done you sell the assets and claim a massive turn around, leaving at as a free nation to navigate its way in the real world.

  • Tatiana Covington

    Simple answer: just don’t pay it!

    • Orac4Prez

      Basically that’s already happening. However, there comes a point when companies refuse to offer services in return. In Italy there are some excellent profitable companies that are suffering because of difficulties raising capital for anything! How long would you provide services for your employer if he didn’t pay you?

  • Ucefphlas

    Sometimes I like to read what the liberal general population is thinking. So i go to the washing post website, find a juicy policital or economic article and read the comment section. Some of the stuff that is said is amazing. The liberal left are the real sheeple of this country. Not majority I hope. You’ll very rarely find someone who will discuss our nations huge debt problem, what really happened at some of the police shootings, and heaven forbid that the first black whatever has doubled the debt of all our previous presidents combined. I would like to thank every person on this site as well as many of the other sites (right wing hate sites) as their called, lol, for actually discussing a article while presenting facts, historical data, etc etc. 🙂

  • sistersoldier

    Good Morning JC! I guess your comment finally made it through the “moderation terminal”! I hope that in return mine does not suffer the same delay.

    All are excellent points indeed! Yes, David was chosen by God because he was a man after God’s own heart and not only that but God knew that when He instructed Samuel to anoint David as King that David would fulfill ALL of God’s will and divine purpose. He was indeed a man with absolutely no gender confusion when it came to the opposite sex. In fact his last words to Solomon were, “I am going the way of all the earth. Be strong, therefore, and show yourself a man!” And then he gave him the final charge to; “Keep the charge of the LORD your God, walk in His ways, keep His statutes, His commandments, His ordinances, and His testimonies, according to what is written in the Law of Moses, that you may succeed in all that you do and wherever you turn” He was letting Solomon know that he must be willing to be led by God but most importantly David knew that it was God who was in control. Solomon was indeed his daddy’s boy! Seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines! I don’t know where he found the time to build the temple!

    Acknowledging God is a lesson our leaders refuse to accept and that is without God it is humanly impossible to lead the people.

    Moses, another man chosen by God, also a murderer before his calling recognized the God behind the plan of deliverance. God told Moses in advance that, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.” Moses’ correct response to the mandate was, “If Your presence does not go with us, do not lead us up from here.” Amen? “Is it not by Your going with us, so that we, I and Your
    people, may be distinguished from all the other people who are upon the
    face of the earth?”

    So if….. brother JC, God can use murderers and adulterers to fulfill the plan of redemption throughout history then why not now? He is the same God yesterday, today and forever.

    You have a beautiful mind brother; don’t let anyone tell you differently. God bless.

    • JC Teecher

      Yes, Yes, and yes…Amen.

      No need to add anything to that insightful work.
      However; on the wives and concubines.
      From what i understand through the Hebrew, concubines are wives. They are considered “secondary” wives, for whatever reasons.
      Solomon must have been blessed with a strong sexual drive, as in what the boys i grew up with called..”double sexed”.
      He must have kept a bunch of folks busy gathering and shucking oysters also. ha,ha.he,he.

      keep up the good work sister.

      • sistersoldier

        They were definitely “shucking” something!

    I must work harder for the millions of socialism programs in my state. ..I must be whipped, abused, luckily I left my husband since I cannot take one more person’s abuse…I have enough. I work for everyone, and I will be glad to stop working one day…for someday I will die and at last I will hopefully be at peace. the debt will get bigger and my paycheck will be spent on my health due to my stress and job…but it’s too big to fail the debt will increase and for the future – what future?

    The future…more jobs given to H1B, more immigrants, less work done, more social programs, less educated young people, more waste and more abuse…Will America exist in 100 years or the next 50 years?
