It's amazing to me how the government can continue to lie, cheat and steal, with the American people willing to just roll over and expose their underbelly, while they wait to be eviscerated.
In other words, Americans are just eating what they are being spoon fed.
Case in point, the national debt. We are told that our national debt is just over $15 trillion. But, that is not the whole story. The national debt is made up of public debt and government spending. If one looks at this a little closer and uses a little common sense, you will find that the national debt and the public debt are not the same thing.
This is an illusion that is used to sugarcoat our debt situation. Our $15 trillion in debt is only a fraction of the problem with this country's spending addiction. The other portion of our debt that seems to be neglected is referred to as unfunded liability, which is currently just over $114 trillion. No, that is not a typo, that is what the media and the government is keeping mum over.
How many people can even begin to fathom even a trillion dollars, much less 114 trillion.
Well, I have gotten you started. Now it's time for everyone to go and do your own research. Remember, a nation of sheep begets a government of wolves.
