Since this country has been out of debt for only a short, short time in its history, it is most likely to assume it will always be in debt. I would say either move and revoke your citizenship or die to close your book.

Otherwise you will always have a share in the public debt, my friend.

I worked full time and went to school full time at the same time. I put in hard work and graduated with no debt. I don't buy things I don't have the cash for.

Yes, but how do I ensure they don't rack up debt in my name again and how do I ensure what I pay as extra actually pays off my portion of their debt?

The problem with that argument is that educational institutions are subsidized in numerous ways by federal and state government so even working your little buttocks off didn't cover the full cost of your education.

No you didn't build it.

I didnt mean cash spending, I meant cash income. To do what you want to do you need to make your taxable income disapear.
