The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
Just a heads up, as we head into the upcoming elections and the various candidates talk about what they will spend YOUR money on, please keep these statistics in mind:
$18,226,035,000,000 – US National debt as of 3:30 (Central) today
$56,692 – Your portion of that debt (per citizen)
$146, 004.94 – Your household’s portion of that debt
104.64% – debt/GDP ration (the government owes MORE than the entire output of the US economy)
Now ask yourself, how are we ever going to pay back what we owe and where will the money to pay for those programs come from?
I don’t care what party the candidate is from, these questions need be asked and the answers need to be very simple and very clear.
