20% of that spending is for defense, take a big whack out of that for starters.<quoted text>
The economy is 15 trillion dollars.
The government is almost 25 percent of the economy.
Therefore, the part of the economy that actually pays for everything is only about 12 trillion dollars.
The total debt is 17 trillion dollars, one and a half times the size of the part of the economy that pays for everything.
The annual deficit has leveled off at 1.3 trillion dollars.
Every year the debt increases at 8 percent.
The real economy is stagnant.
There is no plan in existence to stop the debt from growing at 8 percent every year.
There is no plan in existence to grow the economy.
It's just a matter of time until there won't be any country in the world so stupid they continue giving us money.
Given the above facts, how long do you estimate it will be before our government collapses?
What is the Democrat plan for what to do after the government collapses? Martial law? Create a dictatorship?
And take it up with the Republicans, spending always goes up when a Republican is president and other than Johnson(a Texas big spender) it goes down or is flat, including under Obama -
