A Debt free America
The United states can become a debt free nation in 25 years if it wishes to. But that will not happen ; one because nowadays, the word debt and deficits is a political campaign slogan not a simple solution to the issue itself have ever been put in action. From party to party candidates for public offices have used the debt and deficit tales of Armageddon to be elected to an office. They tell us how our grandchildren will drown in debt, but have never done anything about it while they are in office.
Secondly, when party sign contract to an individual over the interest of a nation not to raise taxes, and another group refuses to reform entitlements, nothing will be done about it. But if we insist that this problem be solved by Washington, then let’s wish them luck.
Unless we the people who send our politicians in Washington really hold them to their responsibilities to the nation we are at fault. So instead of voting party we should vote people who are willing and able to cut spending and raise revenue. Because voting will not produce a good number of politicians to carry out this mission, I subject that a special convention be called, where each state elect five delegates to the convention. The sole purpose of this delegate will be to look into the federal government and come up with spending cuts and revenue while being able to pay the nation’s debt and to make the nation debt free in 25 years a goal I believe can be reached.
If that doesn’t work let every working American puts aside two dollars every month for the next 25 years. If this is done and and the government reduces spending, the debt will be paid in 2037.
