This is the transcript of the introduction for this episode of the Christopher Scott Talk Show Podcast:
Are you happy selling your children to slavery? It's happening whether you want it or not.
There's all this finger pointing in politics and all of it misses the main point. The one thing that's killing the future of this country. The debt.
It's over sixty seven thousand dollars for every man woman and child in the country. So for a family of four that's two hundred sixty eight thousand dollars per family. More than the value of most people's homes.
Our children and their children will inherit this debt they had nothing to do with. What do you call it? What do you call it when someone is forced to work to pay for someone else?
Last Monday while the government was shut down and everyone was arguing of illegal immigration the government set a spending record. That was while the government was shut down.
You might not think it's a big deal. Interest rates are low. The government just cut taxes. The stock market is up. But, what about the generations that inherit this debt? Doesn't it amount to slavery? What else can you call it?
Is anyone stopping to think about the long term effects of all this debt? It's not even talked about. Do we think it's just going to go away? That somehow it's just going to vanish?
Maybe we should take a look at what's happened to other countries that went down this path because it's not a pretty picture. We're so focused on cultural issues and arguing with each other. It's causing us to turn a blind eye to the country's biggest problem. A problem that could end the country as we know it. It robs us and our children of our freedom.
So hit the play button!
