Debt, Spending, & Keynesian Foolishness
#6
It is nice to see that people are getting alarmed by the debt/spending situation. They should be alarmed. Debt has become a way of life for governments and many citizens, and now it has become outrageous.

Long ago, Regan formed the Grace Commission to examine gummint waste, which they did, and then it made some proposals. Grace was quite angry that even Regan did not follow up, and founded the group "Citizens Against Gummint Waste". There was also a constitutional amendment that almost got enough state legislators to put it before the congress. However, both of these things just faded out.

Thanks to BHO et al, the issue is now a hot one.

We have Greece, NY, California and prime examples of the end game of excess debt to boot.
Jefferson: I place economy among the first and important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.
