The people of America voted them in there, so no, I don't blame the people in Washington. The best thing you can do is work hard and be productively and elect people who are smart and think for themselves both in the primaries of whatever party you support and in the main election.

Here's my logic:

In America, we value "things" more than we value family. A growing percentage of our population is spiritually bankrupt. Our young have been conditioned, Pavlov-style, in our government schools, which have robbed them of their critical thinking faculties. At the same time, government and unions detest "home schoolers" and portray them as "wack jobs". Our young men are addicted to video games, pornography, and football. Our young women are poisoned with feminist doctrine, and the breakdown of the family unit is the result. Our politicians are corrupt, paid off by special interest groups. Our population is demographically beginning to resemble a 3rd world country.

The list goes on and on, but my main point is, this country is in dire need of restructuring. A nice little reality check so people will realize again what is important and what is superficial. When the breakdown occurs, the weak will perish and the strong will survive. Rural folks who can grow food, own guns, and have a strong sense of community will be the best off. Urban dwelling government dependent parasites will be the worst off, while upper-middle class hipster whites, the ones who rail against gun ownership and self-reliance won't be far behind the parasites.

The "reset" button is going to be pushed within 20 years, are you prepared?
Amen...Lets restore this nation and if that means we have to stand on a mound of ash..So be it.

You should be thanking God every day that you were born here, so quit whining about a debt you don't understand.

Most of the debt is INVESTMENT by other countries in our country which is a good thing. Especially a country like China, it's not a bad thing to have a powerful country like China this deeply invested in the success of the US. They watch our back in their own self interest and we do the same for them.

This country is fabulously wealthy, the debt is mostly investment and not like a credit card debt as you described it.

Or stay here and change this country back to what it was meant to be.
You mean a slave owning country where women have no right to property or vote and homosexuals are imprisoned? No thank you.

You will get your wish soon enough, don't rush it, just remember in the end you may be part of the ash and not the one standing on it
