As far as no country being close to the USA.<quoted text>
Country in debt?
I bet you believe China is holding most of our debt...
_Look at the Stock Market.... We owe most of our debt to fellow Americans
_I'd worry about not able to afford a good college education for my kids, not the national debt. As always, America will take care of itself. No other country is this world is a close second to America!
_That "National Debt" talk is a trick GOP crooks are using to block Government from investing on the people, making sure more money is made available for much more Tax breaks for the wealthy (like Mitt Romney and The Donald...)
_By hogging all the wealth, they wanna make sure your children remain slaves to big-business....
China is set to overtake the USA in 2016. And who will History record was President when the USA falls to second place?
And as far as education goes
The USA spends more on educating its children then all but three countries.
And if Chicago or Washington DC where independent countries they would be at the top of list by a long shot.
so why are we spending about twice what Germany is spending per student in Washington DC
and about 5 times what Germany is spending in Chicago and getting worse results?
We have doubled the amount we spend per student(and thats after we factor in inflation) over the last 20 and we have nothing to show for it.
I would suggest any one really interested in this go see the documentary "Waiting for Superman". One of the best documentary I seen .
