I have a list of four of five fundamental issues that will lead to the downfall of America as we know it. One of them is the massive amount of government spending. Our budget this year is over 3.7 trillion dollars. To put that in comparison, imagine if Washington DC decided that our government was so vital to the interests of the world that a direct head tax should be levied on every man, woman, and child of the planet. Each “citizen of the world” would have to mail a check for $621.50 in order to pay for this year’s budget. That’s $2,486 for a family of four!
