Yesterday, I was feeling blah for about 10 minutes – I got over it. I do that often. Basically, I got offline and got into the real world – ya know life.
But, I have been playing with this idea for about a few months now – there must be a reason. It just won’t go away. I am one of those people in a meeting that will have this idea that is so outrageous it usally gets poo pooed. Do you think that ever stops me? No, because I love annoying people. And, sometimes my crazy idea stems from a simple idea – which people generally accept.
If you visit the website www.usdebtclock.org you will be overwhelmed with the information. You may also notice the number 57,632,250,900,000 (this number was growing and growing while I watched) this is the US National Debt. That means the average US citizen owes about $183,712 (I am sure this number changed by now) Yeah, good luck getting that from me!
Now, what if we came up with a bond that all Americans would purchase to help eliminate this debt? Sure, we have those savings bonds but they just help a general fund. No, I am talking about a serious US debt savings bond (like our old US War Bonds) – that directly involves eliminatng our debt. I don’t even think it is mathmatically possible to pay our debt the way we are doing it today.
I just need your help – I am a new blogger – I started last month – I just have a few followers, but could you inform your followers to start tweeting, facebooking and blogging about getting our government to start talking about selling our debt to the US citizens? We are selling our debt to China? We have more millionaires in the entire world – we can buy our own debt and make some money of our own down the road!!
I just had to get this out of my brain today – I want to enjoy my Friday. I hope you enjoy your week-end and God Bless America!
