Tell your Friends about the DebtSubmitted by dfoley on Wed, 2011-01-19 21:31
While it may seem like a distant problem, the reality is that until each one of us makes the debt an issue, the folks in D.C. aren’t going to deal with it. The only way they will deal with the debt is if the American people make it an issue.
And that’s why it’s critical that you spread the word about how serious dealing with the debt is for your future, your friends’ futures, your family’s future, and even your coworkers’ futures.
The reality is that our federal government has been consistently spending more than it brings in for years now. In fact, it’s gotten so bad that the United States government owes nearly the same amount as all of the wealth of the United States (GDP) added up.
Not dealing with the debt puts the United States in a weak position when it comes to our national security, takes money out of the economy that could be invested in jobs, can reduce the government’s ability to fulfill its duties, and could lead to an eventual default by the United States which would bring everything to a halt.
Our elected representatives need to deal with the problem before the situation gets any worse and the country hits the wall. And no one wants to see the United States hit the wall:
So what can you do to make sure that doesn’t happen?
We need you to share the information on Intellectual Takeout with your friends, family, and coworkers. Before anyone can put pressure on the politicians, we need to raise awareness about the debt and get a groundswell of support for fiscal responsibility.
We make it easy for you!
