It occurred to me yesterday that I work all day Monday and 1/2 of Tuesday for the Federal Government (my tax bill). This is the same for most Americans. Starting January 2011, We will be working all day Monday, all day Tuesday and small business owners will most likely be working all day Wednesday too. This is wrong on so many levels - I can't begin to explain.
Have you ever thought of it this way - How many days each week do you have to work (if you are fortunate enough to have a job) to pay for the excesses of this Government? How many days do your Children have to work already to pay their share of this debt - Here's a hint - I make approx $40,000 / year - My portion of the debt and the unfunded liabilities means I have to work almost 12 years to pay my share - that means every single penny I make for the next 12 years doesn't really belong to me it is committed to the government. If that isn’t slavery, what is it? If we don't turn this around, how many years will our children have to work to pay this debt?
Here is another way to look at this mess we are in –
Think of the dollars as seconds.
60 seconds = 1 minute
1 Million seconds = 12 days
1 Billion seconds = 32 years
1 Trillion seconds = 32,000 years
This means that the debt in seconds (including the unfunded liabilities) = 3,968,000 YEARS (that is 3 million 9 hundred 68 thousand years–almost 4 million years )
Some history tidbits to further put this number into perspective –
I have had enough. WE HAVE GOT TO STOP THIS IN NOVEMBER and continue forward as long as it takes. We cannot afford our complacency of the past. We have got to educate the masses. We cannot be silent – We must speak out - in the line at Wal-Mart, waiting in the Doctor’s office, in the break room at work – every conversation must be about the fate of this great Republic. We cannot worry about what others may think about us, say about us, or to us ….
I will not give up, give in or give out
It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate,
tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men. -
“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
(2 Chron. 7:14)
If more Government is the answer, how stupid was the question?
