Is it time for America to take an austerity measure?

The system obviously can't go on like this. Soon the debt will collapse the country. Radical changes are obviously needed.

The only way to pay off our debts without inflation is to annihilate all public funding for healthcare and education, and let the private sector take care of these things. This will allow all tax revenue to be put to use to pay for the fact that so many of our parents pigged out on services and demanded free stuff from their kids and fellow countrymen. Our new generation cannot follow in the footsteps of our parents. We cannot demand that our kids and fellow countrymen pay for us to pig out on our overtly long lives and "educated" brains.

    Sure. Start by cutting the lavish benefits, salary, and vacation time received by our do-nothing Congress.

    Then cut the massive amounts of corporate welfare being doled out to Wall Street.

    After that, tackle the biggest entitlement program of them all: The military-industrial complex. Stop burning mountains tax-payer dollars on over-priced, under-performing, glitch ridden turds like the F-35, for example.

    Women actually have nothing to do outside a few professions. Feminism was the ultimate girl on girl fight with a few witches ruining all other women's way of life. Yeah, they should stay home from their crappy so called jobs and educate their children, re educate themselves alongside, why not.

    Great! Turn the United States into an unhealthy, poorly-educated society...though it seems as if you have largely already succeeded.

    Hell no. Acting poor and poor mouthing it is fatal. America by its nature needs to grow and expand and get richer. Shop more. Buy more. Grow and produce. Shop till you drop. We need Prince Harry to move to Malibu and have a real African-American Princess and we need to buy more clothes and makeup and celebrate more. Spend and buy. Start new businesses. Thrive!

    Yes, that would appear to be the SENSIBLE solution, however Democrat would like to increase American federal Democrat spending, and double taxes to pay for Democrat 'austerity.' Never mind the FACT that the lowest federal Democrat tax rate is paid by the four richest men in the entire world. Democrats: Bezos, Gates, Buffet, and Zuckerberg. Who exclude most of their wealth from 'income' according to Democrat IRS 'rules.'

    Source(s): Notice the TD from a tax and spend Democrat who does not want the wealthiest Democrats to pay taxes.
