Haven’t we already discussed that you can’t make a 15 trillion debt magically disappear by not paying for it?
you are absolutely right.
it's always good to bring these things down to ground level, i think. easier for me, anyway.
i don't know if you have kids. you might relate to this if you do.
you have a son. you give your son an allowance of 10 dollars a week. he dates, puts gas in his car, chats on his computer and plays games, and subscribes to a couple of MMORPG. he's generous, so he's easy with his money around his friends.
a couple of months your son runs short of money and asks for an advance on his allowance. you give it to him. his car needs work and you loan him the money. the school dance comes up and he has a hot date, you help him out with the expenses. by the end of the year, you realize that your son is in debt to you by so much that his allowance for a year wouldn't cover it.
the next time your son comes to you for money, you ask to see his budget. he doesn't have one. you ask to see his spending report and he kind of has one....and from what you can see, he's come to you for money without ever adjusting his spending. why should he? you have been there to help him out.
what does the wise father do before giving his son more money? i think he makes sure the son stops spending before he gives another dime. if he continues to fork over money,or he raises the allowance, the son takes the lesson that there is an endless source of money and he never learns to make choices.
and so i ask again....why should anyone pay one cent more in taxes when our government is like our free spending son? no budget, no plan to cut, in fact a plan to spend even more. our government does not have a revenue problem. it has a spending problem.......and some say a lack of leadership, but i think this is not true. we have leadership that is the progressives wet dream.
