i would like to think that everyone here is concerned with our national debt.

so how do we tackle this massive issue.

zfacts.com...

i know it will take more than any one thing to fix our current problem with owing other countries massive amounts of money.

basically i am creating this thread to see what ideas are out there and by people who are alot smarter than me.

my proposal is this: create a national lottery with all 50 states participating.

powerball and megamillions and state lotteries. make billions off the us populace.

the goal of this idea to to only pay the deficit and nothing else.

unlike raising taxes or adding the vat tax- people will be given a choice- which is something we do not have right now.


any thought of this idea will be greatly appreiciated: wether you think it will work or wont work........

thanks for your time:p

Star n Flag first of all
I swear it's like nobody is talking about this
Everyone is not caring about their own imminent future but rather U.F.Os

First thing would be stop piling more debt

What if the dollar crashes?
The money to buy these tickets will be worthless.

I don't think the lottery would fix it imo

Good idea
I honestly do like it
Only thing is that politicians will just decide to have more liberty and pile it up even more much much faster.

I honestly agree,
I think your theory is sound, it's just corruption that stands in the way

You got to retile the dirty broken floors before deciding your strategy to sell the house.

I think once the govt. is cleaned up completely(ya right) then your idea would be pretty good.

$13 trillion IS alot though

thanks for posting on this.

i agree with your assessments as well.

as long as things continue as business as usual it wouldnt work.

i also knew that there is a chance of the corruption as well as paying off other things.


way i see it our national debt is a clear and present danger to this country.

What happens when the interest on this debt reaches 90% of the entire US GDP annually?

Should happen soon, yet no one is prepared.

Everyone is watching an oil leak.

pay the debt or initiate a large scale controlled conflict to wipe the debt off?
