While we are seeing job growth and economic prosperity, you have to remember that it is all built on a castle of over 20 trillion dollars of debt! That is not a number that can even compute for most people. You toss around the word trillion and people nod heads up and down like they have any idea what that means. They don’t. Its so much money that you cannot even fathom it. To imagine that we owe 20 trillions is just too hard to warp the head around.
While we have some short term perceived success on the face of the economy, we are still in big trouble. Someday it will all rear its ugly head. It could be a war, it could be an alliance against America financially, either way we will pay the piper one of these days.
