    18.3 trillion and rising exponentially http://www.usdebtclock.org/

    This is not funny anymore… Please explain how we will get out of this with the candidate you are choosing? Or have you just surrendered to the fact that we are doomed?

    I think it's too late unfortunately. To do it now we would have to cut govt, cut benefits etc. There would be chaos and riots in the streets.

    I'm totally on the Trump war wagon right now. I love that he's totally against illegal immigration. I doubt he'll get into the presidency with "radical" views like that though, but I'm on board so far.

    25% tariffs on any goods from American companies that open factories abroad

    Charging our "friends" when they need our militarys help

    Taking our enemies wealth

    The Wall to keep out the deported

    Leveling the playing field with China and other countries manipulating their currency with threats of taxes

    Yeah if there is one thing Trump is known for is making sure everybody is taken care of. I mean he wouldn't do things like have illegal immigrants build his hotels where almost none of that cheap labor wages will end up in the local economy. :rolleyes:

    Let's hope he doesn't go his normal route and figure he can always declare bankruptcy while still making money for himself elsewhere. What is his brilliant plan again to solve the debt?

    Except when they are building his hotels
     
  14. Government debt is not like personal household debt. So long as the government owns all citizens assests and liabilities they are fine. The key is to make sure the government does not owe too much debt to external creditors, e.g. to foreign nations. With that said maintaining good credit rating is of importance. However, more people should realize the bulk of our debt is debt Americans owe to one another, NOT government induced debt.

    So if you have debt you are personally contributing to that 16 trillion figure.

    That is a bunch of nonenforceable generic crap. And he's going to improve the economy by taxing goods coming in for American companies? That will just make it worse. Most the companies that outsource are global companies and it just means they will sell less in the States.

    And most the places we "Aid" with our military don't want us there and certainly don't have money to rent U.S. forces. And we already butt our noses in all sorts of places we shouldn't be. And now on top of the normal war profiteering we will be charging for our military 'help'? We are going to find a way to get involved in every war on the planet if that happens.

    Taking our enemies wealth? So his plan is for us to become Vikings? And we already pretty much go to war based on where our financial interests are.

    And a wall won't do shit. Although I am sure his companies or buddies would get the contract to build it.

    The things Trump proposes simply aren't feasible. It's incredible that people believe he can pull off such fuckery.
