40 million people at 1 million bucks a piece...
40mx1m= 40 TRILLION dollars.
you realize we are hitting a debt ceiling at our current 7 trillion insanity...you think adding another 40 trillion in debt will sort things out?

What you are proposing is more than 3X our current US National Debt... which is in the upper left hand corner of the link provided. Run your mouse over each figure an read what it says in the center top of the page. Hope this helps.

The corporations need to be boycotted as much as possible. Small businesses are necessary.
Everyone needs their debts wiped clean with a fresh slate. We can just start over with what we have.
People like to point out that others don't know how to cook from scratch anymore. Instead of complaining, I think those should spend their time befriending and teaching/mentoring those who weren't raised knowing how to do things like cooking. It'd help everyone out in the long run because food supplies would go farther than they do now and it can rid us of unhealthy processed foods. This would lower health care costs. The time people spend complaining about other people's ignorance could be better utilized to improving everyone's standard while creating a positive instead of a negative.
Scrap the public school system and raise the standards to what they used to be.
