That Thomas Jefferson guy

was a smart, smart man.

Instead of all this talk about a balanced budget amendment, we should be pushing a no borrowing whatsoever amendment.

Maybe it's just me but it seems that the balanced budget amendment pushed by the Republicans would just allow the Fed Gov't to keep tax revenues at a pre-determined % of the GDP which will keep the massive gov't bureaucracy going on indefinitely.

As the greatest economic power in the history of the world, America should have no reason for it's gov't to borrow money or be in debt ever.

If every person lived within their means and our governments lived within the means we allowed for them then most of the problems we have today would go away.

Unfortunately, it's going to take a total collapse of the system to make everyone see the error of our ways. Who knows if we'll ever be able to rebound from that.
