No you didn't build it.

The debt is owed mostly to American citizens such as yourself. As a matter of fact, if we paid it all off, the US dollar itself would disappear.

Default How do I pay my debt to society that was accumulated in my name by others?

Original debt - you are born into it.

The only salvation is for the Government to forgive it.

Jubilee, man.

Well it is very simple don't re-up your contract to be an American and apply to join another country (I hear Singapore is very nice, but there are many rules and it is quite exclusive). Not only will you not be charged anymore, they have a debt forgiveness program. Unfortunately if you re-up your contract to be an American you must accept current and future charges.

Obama should lead by doing so, but he and Buffett are only all talk.
The 1%'ers that they are.

You do risk running in to the IRS though. It's not exactly a legitimate solution.

Or stay here and change this country back to what it was meant to be.
For having a debt to society, you are already a criminal, by birth.

You don't want to break parole, do you?

Let's pretend Romney wins, what do you think the national debt will be in 2016? $20trillion? $22?

Whether a president tries to turn this fiscal ocean liner around (Clinton), or doubles-down on spending (Bush II), the debt will stay huge. But you just want to blame the latest guy (Obama) for the debts of a 230 year old nation. Sounds kinda childlike, no?
