America is falling apart

America is now paying $84 million each day in interest alone. And the abysmal low-lifes in Washington who make the rules will be re-elected to do more damage unless the few honest patriotic Americans left care enough to get out in force and put new people in office.

On one hand, I can name the few of the 535 now in office that I think should be re-elected. None are from Georgia. I am ashamed and embarrassed to know that my friends and I have allowed this once great nation to sink to the point that we are now governed by the most distrusted, disgusting, lying, egotistical, unpatriotic, self-serving, pious, party bound, hypocritical group ever known to modern man.

America's total debt now increases about $1 million every 32 seconds. In 2013, the few taxpayers left who pay federal income taxes in addition to caring for the freeloaders, paid $416 billion in interest. While true, some of this interest goes back to the treasury. The "Federal Reserve" gets 6 percent interest on the money they loan. Does it not make sense for the bankers to keep America in debt so they get this interest?

The top 10 percent income earners pay 71 percent of income taxes collected while the bottom 50 percent income earners pay 2 percent. The current Washington elite who constantly say the wealthy don't pay a fair share need to be exposed for the misuse of truth.

Figures don't lie, liars figure, as the old adage so accurately reminds us.
