According to one of the most fascinating websites you will ever visit, www.usdebtclock.org, the U.S. national debt is now sitting at $15.5 TRILLION.  This equates to $49,618 per citizen, or $137,249 per taxpayer.  If this trajectory continues it will spell the end of American greatness.  Whether politicians are refusing to address this crisis for nefarious reasons or simple apathy really doesn’t matter; what matters is that the crisis continues to grow. 

A family could not sustain fiscal solvency by spending more each month than it takes in.  Why do we continue to let the federal government spend more of our money than it takes from us?  The time to act is now.  Demand that your elected officials work to pass  the balanced budget amendment and stop the profligate spending.  Keep the www.usdebtclock.org website up, and send the link to friends.  America is being destroyed from within by a bloated, out of control, and negligent government.  We know their names and their faces, and they work for us.  Let’s take back our country by raising the heat on our taxpayer-funded elected officials.
