The United States now borrows over 40 percent of each dollar it spends. Once we were the most prosperous nation on the earth now we are drowning in a sea of debt. Our national debt is over 11.6 trillion, the highest in the world. There is no way our nation can “grow our way out” of such overwhelming debt without cutting the size of government. Will politicians downsize our government and cut spending on their own? “Of course not,” is the right answer. When was the last time you heard anyone in Washington say they would sponsor legislation to cut the size of government and balance the budget?

Many, however, are waking up. It was rightfully reported 1.7 million people attended the Washington D.C. TEA Party gathering September 12th.

SOMEHOW, we have GOT to get the message of economics to those who are voting for expanded government and what personal responsibility means to our country. A GREAT billboard slogan might cause thinking to come back.

We must show how government spending is exactly like your own, you are in debt and taxes cannot go down.

And so goes the rest of government spending...

Thomas Sowell’s “The Housing Boom and Bust” should be able to convince anyone you can get to read it.
