I was reading Thomas Paines "Common Sense" last night and he made a statement that was spot on in regards the DEBT point. I paraphase, he said that debt was ok as long as it had no intrest added. but borrowing with intrest was for the government a true evil. Amazing how "out of touch" these old white men from 200 years ago really were. You see he was talking about the government borrowing to build the navy and putting that debt on the citizens. Conservatives are "OUT OF TOUCH"
