Every responsible American should view the debt clock. Anyone can do this at usdebtclock.org.
Honestly I tried to write down the numbers for the current national debt but the debt is growing so rapidly and the numbers are moving so fast it was impossible. While you are watching our national debt continue to balloon out of control consider this, we pay a daily interest payment to China of $73.9 million dollars. They are using this money to aggressively modernize their military, while our military is set to face the largest military spending cuts in the history of our armed forces.
What is wrong with this picture? China is also using this money to garner economic influence in the world markets, so when Mr. Obama threatens to report China of cheating just how much influence do you think he is really going to have? Oh yea, four more years of Obama. I think we all need to invest in Rosetta Stone and start learning Mandarin.
