The Problem  Increasing Debt:

Under President Bush, the federal debt has increased from $5.7 trillion to $8.8 trillion,  an increase of more than 50 percent.

In four years, Obama has nearly doubled the national debt.

Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s Record  

PAYGO: Obama voted in 2005, 2006, and 2007 to reinstate pay­as­you­go (PAYGO) federal budget rules.

He has overspent by nearly $8 trillion dollars.

Against Raising the Federal Debt Limit:

In 2006, Obama voted against misguided Republican efforts   to raise the statutory debt limit

He now attacks and threatens anyone who doesn’t agree to raise the debt limit.

    “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”
    Alexis de Tocqueville

      tckev, I post about this from time to time because countless people have been trying to track down the true source of this quote forever because it is truly prophetic, profound and critical to understanding the biggest flaw in our system. There are attributions to Benjamin Franklin, Alexis de Tocqueville, Alexander Tytler. Some have even attributed it to Marx. Even Wikipedia is on the case and now list it as misattributed …

      “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.

      This is a variant expression of a sentiment which is often attributed to Tocqueville or Alexander Fraser Tytler, but the earliest known occurrence is as an unsourced attribution to Tytler in “This is the Hard Core of Freedom” by Elmer T. Peterson in The Daily Oklahoman (9 December 1951): “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.”

      Variant: The American Republic will endure, until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money.”

      Whoever wrote this, it certainly is the truest apocryphal wisdom ever uttered regarding America. It is a perfect description of what happens when the cancer of Socialism is introduced into a healthy free society. It exposes the entire gameplan of the Democratic-Socialist party masquerading as both Santa Claus and Robin Hood (let’s call it Santa Hood). Personally I would not be surprised if it were uttered by Madison or even Hamilton in the Federalist Papers era though it would seem likely that the source would have turned up by now. Or maybe it was a disappointed Anti-Federalist watching the colonies ratify the new Constitution. Regardless, Truer words were never spoken.

      We may never learn the true source, which is a shame really. Perhaps one day when all old newspapers and tons of microfilm are scanned and OCR’d to plaintext, and searchable instead of being stashed behind paywalled websites, then we might turn up who that genius was.

        Thanks very much, I knew some of this but you have added some meat to my bare bones of knowledge.
        I also agree that it is prophetically accurate quote of what has happened and still happening.

    Ultimately, the only way our national debt will be repaid is in worthless hyper-inflated dollars. That is how the Revolutionary War was paid for. The currency then was called the “continental.” Many veterans were left holding worthless currency resulting in the saying, “not worth a continental” for utter worthlessness. However, this hyperinflation is not likely to happen for a very long time. The U.S. can get away with it for many reasons until the dollar ceases to serve effectively as the international and reserve currency.
