I'm a U.S. citizen, and I agree with Bondman, used to worry about the debt. I can remember Nixon and Ford's former Treasury Secretary warning us about the high U.S. debts back in 1978's book "A Time for Truth." Since, we have gone from under a $1 trillion debt to $16.4 tril. We churn away, with no severe reckoning. I thought it impossible to continue adding debt, but I was wrong. It's still working, and I don't see that this corrupting, maddening system will end soon. Generally, the middle class doesn't care about debts as long as it is fed by handouts- food stamps, subsidies, Social Security, Medicare. Most in the middle don't even know what's going on and ignore the news. Proof? The middle class re-elected the chief debtor. Won't stop.
