Surprise! We are approaching a "fiscal cliff".

Everyone is talking about the “fiscal cliff”. Did this just sneak up on us?

Our government is over 15 Trillion Dollars in debt. We are adding to that debt with over 1 Trillion a year. Then Congress decides to spend another 40 Billion Dollars a month on bad mortgages. We have unfunded liabilities in Social Security, Welfare, and other social programs.

Unemployment is at almost 8%. People are losing their homes, their jobs, and their hope.

Now everyone is noticing that we are approaching a “fiscal cliff”. What a surprise!

Just last Friday, the US Department of Education released new data on student loan defaults. Within a handful of years, US taxpayers will be on the hook for over $100 billion in student loan defaults.

When we needed strong leadership, the Republicans gave us Mitt Romney and the Democrats gave us Obama. Then, the people voted for the lesser of 2 evils. If we continue to vote for only the 2 major party candidates, we will continue to have the lesser of 2 evils governing us.

Register for other parties. Send a message that you have had enough. You can still vote for any candidate.
