While I agree that the snowball effect of our deficit is really getting out of hand, there's no need to scare the average American Joe Blow into "fighting for the cause". Watch this video, if you're American it should sufficiently make a few drops of pee come out:
Sweet God. Regardless, my point still stands. What can we, the American people do about it? Revolt? Riot? Revolution? It will not happen, at least not until gas is 15 dollars a gallon, and they freeze all of our bank accounts. If it's our job to stop our government from spending unnecessarily, how the hell are we going to do it? Our federal government insists on policing the world, thereby spending a huge chunk of our annual taxable GDP on the military. It's funny that neither party ever mentions it, but argues over peanuts like welfare. One thing's certain - the system our parents and grandparents have setup will destroy our generation. We are going to have to pay for their mistakes. Thanks a lot, grandpa.
