The U.S. National Debt
The U.S. government has now racked up more than $16 trillion
dollars in debt.
The U.S. debt is now bigger than the entire U.S. economy.
The U.S. national debt was $10.626 trillion dollars on the first day President Barack Obama took office back on January 20, 2009.
The U.S. national debt as of today, January 27, 2013 is, $16.444 trillion dollars.
The U.S. national debt has now been increased by $5.8 trillion
dollars, or two-thirds of it's 2009 amount.
President Barack Obama has now overseen the largest debt
explosion in U.S. history.
So, how much is a trillion dollars?
Well, a million seconds is 11.5 days, a billion seconds is almost
32 years, and a trillion seconds is almost 32,000 years.
So, if you spent one dollar every second around the clock, it would
take you 31,688 years to spend a trillion dollars.
Now, If we wanted to pay down a trillion dollars of the U.S. national
debt, paying one dollar a second, with no interest, it would take us
almost 32,000 years.
Western civilization hasn't even existed for 32,000 years.
Washington’s crazed debt addiction is uncontrollable and endemic.
U.S. politicians have now strapped an inconceivably large debt
burden, directly onto the backs of the American People.
While often described as, “the richest nation in the world,” the
reality is, the United States of America is, "the most indebted
nation in the world."
No other government in the world even comes close to matching
the debt burden that has been dumped onto every U.S. taxpayer.
The U.S. government is rampantly incurring debt in your name,
and you have no way to stop it or to slow it down.
Standing in free speech zones with protest signs didn’t work when
it came to stopping the war(s) or when it came to stopping the
wall street crony bailouts, and it won’t work for stopping the debt
The U.S. government has now overspent your money, not by $1
trillion, not by $2 trillion, $5 trillion, or even $10 trillion dollars.
The U.S. government has now overspent your hard-earned
money, and money not yet earned by your children, and by
your grandchildren, by over $16 trillion dollars.
You and I, didn’t overspend the $16 trillion. Our government did.
But you and I, and our families, are all now on the hook, for it all.
So, how long will it take for you and I, to pay for all of their
To pay back one trillion dollars, at a rate of one dollar per second,
would take 31,688 years.
The median American household income is about $50,000 per year.
That translates to less than one tenth, of one cent, per second.
So, if your family earns $50,000 per year, and if you spend none of
that on food, rent, transportation, income tax or pursuing your own
happiness, and if you take all of your family’s household income and
use it to pay off just $1 trillion dollars of the current U.S. national
debt, it would take you and your family, "32 MILLION YEARS" to pay
off this debt.
Now, multiply that number by 16, because the United States of
America is now over $16 trillion dollars in debt, and 32 million
years, multiplied by 16, equals, "512,000,000 MILLION YEARS."
That’s five hundred and twelve million years.
That's our government.
That's our reality.
That's our cue.
Power To The People!!
