If you could have the National Debt cancelled



and give a better future to your kids and grand kids but it could only happen in exchange for your life, would you make that sacrifice?

No, because congress would just see this as a blank slate. The debt would be worse than it is now in 10 years. The national debt isn't the problem. Our political system is the problem.

Hell no. You miss the entire purpose of life, Rev.

The only reason mankind is here is so that God can experience sensation. So we must have conflict or there is no point to life. Do you read books or see movies that have zero conflict? No. It wouldn't be worth reading/watching.

The national debt is something we have to deal with. There are no quick fixes. There ain't no Santa Claus.

OK, since it's a hypothetical I'll take the deal and give up the remainder of my life to wipe out the debt with one addition to the hypothetical.

All programs which transfer wealth will end forever. No Soc. Sec, no welfare, no medicaid, no disability, no food stamps, no grants for the arts, no educ funding for the poor and stupid. NOTHING.

That is the only way the debt will not return to it's present level. And I don't think it would take 10 years for the debt to reach 16T. More like 10 months.

no way, b/c it would just have them go crazy if the balance sheet was brought to 0. it wouldn't solve anything

our society has a public spending addiction. you only can deal with addiction when you hit rock bottom and realize you have a problem

I would gladly sacrifice all elected politicians at the federal level who truly created this economic mess.
