If not us, who?_______If not now, when?
Election Day is Tuesday, November 4th. Our Editorial Board encourages you to support those candidates who are running for office to solve our country’s growing debt problem. Thomas Jefferson once wrote “If we can but prevent the government from wasting the labours of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy.” In the upcoming election, we have an opportunity to choose whether we want to stay on the current path of larger, ever-expanding government, or if we want to heed the advice of one of our country’s Founders.
Unfortunately, this past month (which was the first month of our federal government’s new fiscal year) our country passed a new threshold. The cumulative US debt now stands in excess of $17.8 trillion, which equates to an amount in excess of $56,000 for every man, woman, child and retiree.
Please give your support to those candidates who are more concerned about our country’s future (rather than their own future re-election chances), and who are committed to Fix the Debt, rather than push this growing problem onto future generations.
