Palin: Federal debt will enslave next generation to 'foreign master'
iStock Analyst / United Press International ^ | November 10, 2013

DES MOINES, Iowa, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- The federal debt "will be like slavery" for the next generation because it will be indebted to a "foreign master," Republican pundit Sarah Palin said in Iowa.

At the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition's fall fundraiser Saturday in Des Moines, Palin said the federal government offers a host of "free" services that must be paid for at some future date to someone, The Des Moines Register reported Sunday.

"Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China," Palin told the audience in politically important Iowa. "When that money comes due -- and this isn't racist, but it'll be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to beholden to the foreign master."

She railed against establishment Republicans for abandoning conservative principles, singling out the Affordable Care Act, colloquially known as Obamacare.

"Remember their promise that they would do everything in their power to fight against socialized medicine, against Obamacare?" Palin said. "When it came time to stand and defund it, they waved the white flag of surrender and they threw under the bus the good guys who did stand up and fight."

She also spoke about what she called a censorship of Christian holidays, noting that she had a book on the topic that would be published in a few weeks, the Register reported.

"Enough is enough of this politically correct police out there that is acting to erode our freedom to celebrate and exercise our faith," the ex-Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate said.

OK Sarah:

There is one way, to cut back on the federal deficit.

Nobody in either party, seems willing to say or do, anything toward that goal.

I’m serious. Both parties are increasing the export of US jobs to China.

If you are serious about doing something to stop ringing up massive amounts of American debt.

Then there is one, and only one, solution:

BRING BACK AMERICAN JOBS.

Ping to Sarah's Amazing List!

"Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China," Palin told the audience in politically important Iowa. "When that money comes due -- and this isn't racist, but it'll be like slavery when that note is due. We are going to beholden to the foreign master."

Wow, I can literally add nothing to Sarah's Quote.

Except maybe this, Sarah also called out the GOP for selling out on Mengelecare.

It should be clear to everyone that the GOP is now the second Progressive Party.

Mrs. Palin had a five step plan to bring back jobs and investment to America. She outlined it 2 years ago. It was, actually received positively by the, I believe, New York Times and then you did not hear anything else about it.

Well I am all for Sarah Palin.

I have supported everything (basically) she has ever supported. Since before she announced as VP candidate in 2008.

I strongly support her. But nobody is currently advocating for American jobs.

Someone needs to.

Sarah this is an issue whose time has come.

America has been selling out, America for an entire generation.

Please stand up for all of us.

Do not leave it to Democrats.

Sarah I’ve been on your side since the very beginning.

I only ask you please, to stand for us.

Thank you, for standing up for American jobs.

The brilliant thing about the scheme is that current workers in the economy are paid with this borrowed money, then when they retire, they get off scot-free and stick the next generation with the debt.

The federal debt is a done deal. The Fed thinks it can be inflated away. Not mathematically possible over the long haul.

Repudiation of the debt. It’s going to happen. Guaranteed.

Which is exactly what she addresses here. We are in debt to the Fed which our children will pay for, and to China who will come a callin’.

The “National Debt” CAN NEVER BE PAID, We cannot pay it down ever, let alone pay it off. To do so would immediately destroy the wealth of everybody, Especially BANKERS AND WALL STREET, simply because ALL Federal Reserve Notes and Credits were LOANED into Existence. There would only be COINAGE in existence, for it is not “Loaned” into existence. Got Change??

Does anyone really think this country is ready for 5 cent loaves of bread and houses under $20,000, or 25 cent a gallon gas.?? That’s where we will be should we PAY THE DEBT, just go back to pre 1965 dollars, that is the RESULT OF PAYING OUR DEBT.

Just as an FYI, US total debt is about $17 trillion.

China and Japan own about the same amount of that. $1.1 Trillion each.

So China holds about 6.5% of US debt. Ditto Japan. 6.5% is not a foreign master.

You are 100 percent correct. Heck we just had all 3 branches of government not terribly long ago and they did nothing! Heck we had so many opportunities back then. First should have been to rid ourselves of the UN, but Bolton was part of the get along gang. Such a tragedy and huge missed opportunity.

I strongly disagree.

China’s hold on America’s debt is large and increasing.

China is the manufacturer of a large, large portion of what Americans buy.

Bring back AMERICAN manufacturing.

Stop importing everything from China.

I agree completely.

America is going ever further into hock.

All our businesses sell, is a bunch of things made in China. Even worse, made by communists, for crying out loud.

America needs to make things right here in America.

Bring back American jobs.

Maybe on paper, but in reality you cannot own your own debt. How can you possibly borrow $10,000 from yourself ? For a government it is only possible because they control the value of their fiat money. So they have thrown more dollars into their fiat pie (inflation). A pie which has been getting smaller in size due to lack of economic activity (deflation). We are in a state of limbo I think technically with only a handful of countries willing to risk buying our debt.

I'm with you.

Cutting federal spending will increase unemployment and hurt the economy in the short run. We need jobs to offset the loss of government jobs.

Raising the import tariffs and bringing the jobs back to America, raises the income tax raised by government at the same time it reduces the outlays. And with the increase in jobs, it's possible to cut government spending even further without harming the economy.

How? Labor will move from unproductive to productive areas.

As evidence, the number of “jobs created” increased in the month of the shutdown.

Most of those jobs didn’t go to China. They just went.

Automation is killing everything. The displaced do not become software engineers. That just doesn’t work. The 45 year old lady toll collectors displaced by bumper bar code readers didn’t become a software engineer to write bar code reader code.

She’s at home on benefits and it’s not particularly her fault. Not everyone has the IQ for software engineering.

There’s a lot of government intervention in business that makes jobs scarcer. When people and businesses were more flexible, shifts in industries were easier to accommodate.

The military only accepts candidates who fall into a specific height range. This is primarily because the military doesn't have the time or money to order custom-made uniforms and equipment for those who fall outside of the standard ranges.

The cause for rejection for Armed Forces male applicants is height less than 60 inches or more than 80 inches. The cause for rejection for Armed Forces female applicants is height less than 58 inches or more than 80 inches. The Marines are more restrictive.

For the Marines, height standards for male applicants range from 58 to 78 inches. Height standards for female applicants range from 58 to 72 inches.

==-===

Looks like below 5 feet and above 6 foot 8 inches for guys and less than 4 foot 10 and above 6 foot 8 for women.

Not when there is high unemployment. There must be jobs available for labor to move to. Otherwise you just increase unemployment.

I believe China owns 6, maybe 7% of our debt. The Federal Reserve on the other hand (which none of us "own") has a heap load of American debt.

The debt of the USA to the so called Fed Reserve and thus onto China was foisted on the Nation as an established USA government action/obligation. In reality it was surreptitiously foisted on the USA by international bankers supposedly working for the benefit of the people of the USA by the likes of Soros and up through the chain of influence to the European bankers controlled by the Rothchilds. The Saudis who were partners with this group also got into the mix with their oil blackmailing. The people of the USA who actually are paying for this subterfuge can also thank Bush1 for his ‘new world order’.
