FACT: The U.S. government is bankrupt!
The government has an “official” debt of $15.8 trillion and mounting. But wait, there’s more. This doesn’t include the liability from Social Security and Medicare. When you factor these in, the amount according to some, exceeds $120 trillion. With U.S. Federal tax revenue of just over $2.3 trillion, that puts our debt-to-income ratio somewhere around 5,082%. .
And while we plunge into fiscal disaster, environmental disaster looms…
Our war record (unprovoked aggression) does not inspire national pride. Our shameful export of terror, munitions and war has crippled the planet through neglect. And now we are facing environmental disaster.
One in 10 people, globally, do not have clean water. The Earth is experiencing mass extinctions and species decline. Earth’s dying oceans are demonstrably rising to flood all shores.
This bankrupt shell of a nation is sinking fast. Now Trump wants to speed up our spiraling decline, with more wars, invasions and attacks for the corporate bottom line.
While calling for a declared war on ISIS mercenaries (armed and trained by the CIA), Trump wants to restart the nuclear arms race.
“Trump stunned nuclear experts Thursday by proclaiming in a tweet that “the United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.”
And on Friday, Trump himself weighed in again, saying in a statement to “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC: “Let it be an arms race. We will outmatch them at every pass and outlast them all.”
The orange clown in the White House, kind-of elected by a curious 19% of the nation, has taken the throne to pout and shout about racism, misogyny and hate.
