So if we go that route it will only take about 280 years to pay it off!! Thats if we take every dime the rich make ! And of course this will be if we don't spend a penny over what we take in normal taxes. That will not sit well with the Messiah as he wants to spend atleast 1 trillion over what they take in for the next 4 years! So it's a pointless exersise! Cause unless the spending stops it will never end! But this is exactly what the Messiah wants- to totally destroy our country. The Change he ran on-Forward to collapse.

It may not make sense to you and me, but to Obama it is the fair thing to do.

Obama wants the government to play whack-a-mole with the achievers. When one starts to reap the benefits of their hard work, the government knocks them back down in the name of fairness.

That's probably not far from the truth.

I actually think that this would be a doable thing to do and I'm sure if there was a real plan like that there would be some people to volunteer to pay a little more.
Even the lower class could have it deducted from food stamps or other programs at like $9 per month.

On the flip site with the current administration it would go to way more spending instead of paying down the debt.
And they will even now start more welfare programs no matter the cost.
Something drastic needs to happen to have the reset button pushed and at some point it will happen and be way worse then making hard decisions now to fix this mess.

From a former commodities broker. The video series totals 2.5 hours, but I can't emphasize enough how much more educational it is compared to normal economic articles.
GAFinch,
Thank you as you actually helped me understand more then I ever knew before.
I really should have put more time into this before saying something but now I'm even wiser.
However my math was right on just not the part as to who we owe it too.
On the other hand I'm not sure that is better that we Owe nearly 4 trillion to several countries vs just one.

I have not have the time to watch the video but have it bookmarked and will watch it.

Uh, what? 320 million dollars a year will pay off our interest bearing debt? From what I've read of your posts, you can barely spell most 1 syllable words. Maybe you should start there before you tackle loan amortization.

When a government runs out of money, it will keep printing/borrowing money to continue paying out welfare checks in order to keep their voting majority. Once the system completely collapses, however, and the masses are hungry and angry, that's a different story. Look at the Marxist transitions in Russia and China, where there was a temporary systemic economic disruption and resulting food shortages. The poor masses become a security threat and are taken care of by being rounded up and shot in the back of the head, even though they're the ones who Marxism is supposed to be helping. Once the unruly mobs are dealt with, then they take care of their loyal underlings who know too many of their dirty secrets, then they move on to the principaled capitalist and religious individuals. We're talking about narcissistic atheists in positions of unchecked power here. They're sociopaths. They have nothing to fear except for their own lives here on earth.

16,000,000,000,000 / 1,000,000,000 = 16,000 / 365 = 43.8 years
So if we paid one billion dollars a day with no intrest figured in it would take 43.8 years to pay the 16 trillion.

There is no other way to deal with the debt that default or continuing to devalue the dollar. What happens when the dollar is no longer the world's reserve currency?

When interest rates return to their historical average of 4% that will add $1 trillion a year just to service the debt.

This is good information. Let's try to get the real story, which I admit I have no clue what is really going on. I feel like Biden and Obama in that regard.

Yeah, everyone gets a "fair shot" at being Kenyan or Sudanese, Libyan or - -

I just heard on the Radio that America owes China + Japan 5.1 Trillion. I would like to see a 5,000 word essay explaining the situation and using the real figures. It would be nice to see exactly where we stand. Also explaining what would happen if oil was bought using say the YUAN. And how a default in Greece etc. effects the USA.

What they probably said on the radio was that around $5.1 trillion of debt is owned by foreign investors, the largest of which are China and Japan, who each have about $1 trillion. The rest is mostly owned (or backed) by the Fed.

Greece? Simplified explanation pulled from the link I posted:

1. JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs buy Grecian debt.
2. Citibank borrows money from the Fed at 0% interest rate.
3. Citibank then buys credit default swaps on Grecian debt from JPM and GS.
-Citi pays JPM/GS 1%. In return, JPS/GS agrees to guarantee Citi's Grecian bonds in the event of a Grecian default.
-In return, if a default happens, Citi would surrender the Spanish bonds to JPM/GS who would get to keep any salvage value. (the swap portion)
-Yes, JPM/GS is actually writing insurance policies on sovereign debts.
4. Due to TARP, banks no longer have a 10% reserve requirement (10% of their loans must be secured with assets). It's now 0%. Loans can be issued infinitely.
5. Credit default swaps happen in-between Greece and the US, Greece and Italy, Greece and Spain, Greece and Germany, Greece and Japan, Italy and Spain, Britain and Japan, etc. They're buying each other's worthless junk bonds with printed money to stop bank runs and keep welfare checks flowing to stay in power. This is being repeated over and over and over again. This international unsecured debt is estimated to now total around $1.5 quadrillion.
6. How do they protect themselves?
-Bribing ISDA to never declare a default on a country.
- Sending employees into governments and central banks to provide ongoing bailouts.
7. If a country were to finally default, every other participating country would default at the same time since the central banks and investment firms are so closely linked together in these circular loans and transactions are largely done autonomously and instantaneously by computer programs instead of human beings.

I know, not quite 5,000 words.
