To most people success is working hard, having a successful career and earning your money. To LIB asshat moonbats success is getting as much as you can from the government with the least effort and without any personal responsibility or work ethic. Beyond pathetic!

Then you’re in for a nasty surprise when the bill finally comes due.

Here's a US government owned asset ~ it's called a lodge at Grand Canyon. Has a great view. There's always traffic. If the gub'mnt pleads poverty and no cash and doesn't pay me I can go to court and ask for an asset seizure ~ I want about 10 square feet of that lodge for the next 20 years ~ don't even need to give me title, but access to the power system.

I get to sell what I want.

Then, there's an oil lease area ~ a private company is pumping oil, but they pay the gub'mnt a royalty. So, I sez to the judge, "Hey judge, sign me up for the royalties from that there oil well in the picture ~ for 15 years".

One more time, when you have assets they can be converted to pay your debts.

Most of the Western United States need to be sold off and converted to private enterprise.

Kill social security and then we can talk about stuff like this. I think it’s a creative way to solve the problem - but killing social security has to come first.

There are no private sources with sufficient funds to pay for the Western United States ~ not even the hydrocarbon laden Green River formations ~ which are now workable.

We are speaking of HUNDREDS OF TRILLIONS OF BUCKS ~ nobody has money like that.

Again, your reluctance to scale up your thinking is leading you into irrelevant conclusions.

We have a great national patrimony and it must be put to work ~

So, sell off all of it and pay off the debt. :)
