    All it would take is for each and every American to contribute $30,000 plus dollars and the debt would be gone.

    And why do I care if the Federal government owes money that it prints represented by Treasury Notes that it also prints?

    The Federal debt as a percentage of GDP has been going down for years.

    This Country will never elect enough Congress Critters who are willing to cut spending because there are way too many people who rely on deficit spending for their living.

    The sad thing is, that if that ever happened we would be back in the same mess in 10 years.

    Paying off credit card bills doesn't do any good if you rum em back up.

    Money isn't backed by anything anyway. All they do is crank up the printing press. Roosevelt took us off the gold and silver standard in the 30s another Democrat.

    1) charge illegals tax just like we pay.

    2) charge other countries for being their police force.

    3) make senators disband their private pension plan and use Social Security.

    4) TERM LIMITS for senators. Some have died years ago but still show up and collect a pay check and will collect a pension long after they are dead.

    5) tax Bill Clinton every time he fools around on Hillary.

    6) tax Bill Clinton every time he gives a speech!

    7) tax Al Gore every time his airplane takes off.

    8) tax Al Gore a gluttony tax on his home energy use.

    9) move the United Nations to some other country and quit paying the bills.

    10) charge a premium tax Hollywood facelifts.

    11) charge candidates for office for a drug test and check for Botox.

    12) put wind turbines inside the Republican and Democratic conventions so some good can come from all of that HOT AIR!

    I'm with Wolfram...I not only put in my $30k, I put in $12k of someone else's.

    I'm not sure when, exactly, it was that I became "rich"....there must be some mistake...I'm only paying MY taxes, not the whole damn county's!

    If we did pay it all off in full, they would not be able to sleep at night trying to figure out how to spend the new found credit.
