Does the national debt worry anyone besides me? I have to believe at some point the debt burden will at some point be so great that it will lead to a great depression. As I think about retirement I worry that the money I have paid in will be “confiscated” to deal with the debt and I won’t be able to retire.
But my biggest concern is for my children and grandchildren. Honestly, they did not elect the people who have saddled our nation with this debt. However, they may face a lifetime of a lower lifestyle than my generation because of this enormous debt. It is not reasonable that the “villagers”, you and me, demand that our government enact a plan to control the debt.
As for us “villagers”, maybe it is time that we take action in our own hands an be ready to amend the Constitution to mandate a balanced budget to protect the future for our children.
