You have sorta missed a major point. Its not your fault. It isn't discussed anywhere much in either MSM or the alternative media.
The point is that at the end of the day, the US is presently insolvent. Those are all nice spending ideas, but.......in the end throwing all that money into those projects may feel good, but the great likelihood is they'll never get finished.
According to the U.S. Debt Clock, we’re at nearly $21 trillion in debt, and the number increases so quickly that seizures might very well result.
As Tom Woods and all sensible economists have recently claimed, the United States of America is simply insolvent. The only shocking thing is that no one in the mainstream media or financial institutions seems to care.
Sorry to rain on your parade.
