The people in the United States are enslaving their children and their grand children with debt. When someone goes in to debt, they become the slaves of their creditor. According to John Adams, there are only two ways to enslavde a nation; one is with the sword and the other is by debt.
Daniel Webster once said "That if our nation will never be conquered from a foreign power, if it falls it will be from within." In other words the debt and corruption is a far greater threat to our security than weapons of mass destruction and foreign terrorists. The ignorance and the apathy of the American people is necessary for those that seek to control the American people and their assets.
Spending money that we don't have on programs that we don't need is insanity. Eventually the burden to debt will destroy our nation and we will become debt slaves in the land that once was free.
