Here's the thing. You don't get out of debt by borrowing money. Doesn't matter how much money you borrow or where you borrow it from. That's not how you get out of debt.

You get out of debt by actually cutting spending and taking those cuts and spending that money on debt reduction. Yes you need to cut military spending. But you also need to cut spending on Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and all the other social programs that the everyone is so fond of. You have to cut stuff all the way across the board. Not just the cuts that politicians talk about where you're cutting how much you are going to increase spending, but you have to actually cut stuff.

Honestly, I've given up on the idea that I'll ever get anything out of Social Security, Medicare, etc..... Those entire systems are a scam. If I could, I would opt out today and let them keep everything I've already put in. I am perfectly capable of planning my own retirement thank you very much.
