We have been living beyond our means for too long at the expense of our children's future, borrowing from everybody and anybody. Our leaders have no plan to pay the principal on the debt for decades to come, nor do they consider it to be problem which would be equivalent to political malpractice.

By continuing to borrow at an unprecedented rate, and with the ongoing deficit spending, we are placing the status of the dollar as a reserve currency in jeopardy, with potential unintended consequences that may haunt us for generations to come.
