Win a free trip to a concert. How bout a three day two night trip for two? Be the 10th caller and win cash! Millions given away in state lotteries. Campaign contributions mountainous dollars. And the country is in debt.
If we really cared about the debt of our nation we would:
1. Suspend individual satisfaction of greed and earmark the cash towards debt reduction.
2. We would help the nation with lottery winnings going towards debt reduction.
3. We would take care of the USA before sending all our dollars to famine stricken lands while families in the US go homeless and hungry.
4. I really like the idea of holding back campaign contributions until Congressional leaders actually fix our national debt and become morally responsible for the degradation of our society resulting from the enactment of unacceptable laws.
5. Realize the national debt is not just the responsibility of Congress to repair but every citizen of the USA. Just as an aside, if you’re not a citizen of the US, but freeloading on our kindness, GET OUT!
6. Welfare recipients should be made to realize the system is a temporary helping hand and not a permanent handout! Get drug tested. I prove my innocence every day I go to work. Prove yours.
