I keep hearing the liberals, the progressives and the Democrats saying over and over again that America is the richest country in the world. That we should be providing unlimited unemployment (benefits) for years, not months. That we should be providing “Obamacare” to 40 million uninsured lower income families. That we should be providing cheap or free higher education to every single American high school student. That we should be providing jobs for every American. Obama said that if he is re-elected that he will give amnesty to 20 million illegal aliens, 20 million. That we should be providing food aid, business aid, medical aid for every single poor nation in the world. That we should be providing military protection for every corner of the globe. That America should be everything to everybody in the world.

Well, folks, I hate to tell you this, but America is not the richest nation in the world. We are the biggest debtor.

America is in debt to the tune of $15,000,000,000,000.00. That’s $15 trillion dollars we owe ... the operative is “owe.”

We cannot afford all of the programs that Washington, D.C., has promised anymore. Those days are over.

We are borrowing trillions of dollars from our arch-enemy, the Red Chinese Army Pension Plan, if you can believe that. When will the liberals, the progressives and the Democrats realize that there is no more money in the Treasury and that we are going to have to cut back on “spending.” Folks, the party’s over.
