The United States government has amassed more than $22 trillion in debt. That’s almost $70 thousand of debt forced onto the back of every American citizen. This isn’t a Republican problem, it isn’t Democrat problem—it is a Washington D.C. problem. No matter the party that is in power, the spending always continues to a tune of $7 million per minute.
Our government was founded on the principle that it serves people. But when it comes to issues monetary and fiscal, we have a self-interested, monolithic Washington machine that feeds off of the people instead. This machine is fueled by the greed of special interests, and power-drunk politicians. They continue to borrow, print, and spend our wealth at an unsustainable pace.
This is not only an immoral outrage but also a national security threat. Financial ruin is the gravest threat the United States of America faces, beyond terrorism, foreign powers, or environmental disaster. I took an oath to defend this nation from all enemies foreign and domestic. I intend to defend this nation from financial ruin.
- I will make it my mission to fight for a balanced budget.
- We shouldn’t spend a penny more than we take in. Kicking the can down the road to our kids is not an option.
- I will advocate for aggressive spending cuts.
- The party’s over for Washington fat cats. The federal government is too big and has its clumsy, heavy hands in too many things at the federal, state, and local level. Time for cuts. I will advocate for spending cuts in all areas of government, no sacred cows. No special treatment. No pet projects.
Our fiscal house must be put in order. We must not burden our children and grandchildren with the mountains of debt that have been growing and growing, year over year. I will fight tirelessly for a return to fiscal sanity and financial reform.
