This bimbo thinks paying off the debt is the way will solve all our problems.
I would support it , if she had said tax increase to support the yearly budget. In my opinion, if you want to spend the money, you should be willing to pay for it. How can anyone have a problem with that?
I believe she wanted to offer her guests a talking point.
But what I know for sure is this, Americans will rise up by the millions and take back the govt. It will likely be messy at first like most revolutions but at the end will result in a freerer, less centralized govt. I am very optimistic about it and just like the brier patch rabbit, I say dont do it "wink" "wink"
The government knows that. Thats why they print more rather than tax. Itll come to that eventually and when it does itll be more than 40% and itll be ugly.
So why would I believe that after the media does its job of desensitizing everyone to having 40% taken, that the public will react any differently?
Here's an example of what happens when the gov't just wants your money to pay something off: We have an island right off of San Diego called Coronado, with a beautiful bridge between us. Years ago, the city council proposed a fee to cross the bridge, and promised to end the fee once the bridge was paid for. Didn't happen - not for many years, until the public finally got rid of the jerks who lied to us. But by then, they had done their damage in so many ways and had millions in their coffers. History has proven over and over that once you give in to a tax, it's irreversable. So, what happens after they get our money and pay the debt? You think they're going to stop stealing 40% from us? Not on your life! And that's even IF they use it to pay off the debt in the first place and not come up with some excuse to use it elsewhere - for the children! I just don't trust them at all to do the right thing. Nope. No way in hell will I EVER trust this or any gov't to take more of my money for mistakes and bad decisions they have made.
I wish I had your optimism about it. Perhaps you are right. I guess we would know by the reaction to such a proposal made by Congress, or the Dictator. But given how our reactions went to the wayside over the bail-outs and Obamacare, I really don't hold out much hope.
I am Zippy and I approve of this message. But you don't have to.

Yes, rob everybody of even more of their money and give it to the government so they can murder more people abroad, cage more people at home, and destroy the economy even more. Great idea!
I don't even want the debt repaid. The US govt should just file for bankruptcy and walk away from the national debt. Let the bastards who loaned money to the tyrannical govt we have lose their money instead of taxing me more to pay for govt spending I never wanted in the first place.

I think the government should be held accountable to it's promises, but I do agree that it must declare bankruptcy. People who loaned the federal government money will obviously have to take some sort of deal and would receive a fraction of what they loaned, but there have to be consequences, just as there are in the private sector.
It would be great to have the majority of federal government assets repossessed by creditors. That, at least, would put hundreds of billions of dollars of assets (land, buildings, vehicles, precious metals, etc) back into the private sector where they can be put into much better use. It would also reduce the federal government's power and it would certainly increase caution when loaning to the federal government.
The United States is already getting bad enough, and this type of thinking is exactly what they want. They want people who actually care about liberty and the rights of the individual to just roll over and let them have their way, like man-children who were spoiled too much when they were young. Once again, buck that and all that comes with it.
