All deficit spending by government is a way to tax children for the “free lunch”/”benefits” promised to our alleged adults. In order to keep buying the support of the current voters, the government is destroying the future for those too young to vote and even too young to understand. These children trust American adults and American politicians to take care of them. The adults and politicians instead take care of themselves and sacrifice the children precisely because the kids are too young to understand, too young to organize, too young to vote.
Deficit spending the political equivalent of abortion. It destroys the lives of those most innocent and least able to defend themselves. It destroys the future to protect the present. It is an abomination.
I received the following graphic by email. It illustrates perfectly what children and young Americans should be saying:
There is going to come a time–and not so long from now–when America’s youth will stop paying taxes to pay for their parents’ and grandparents’ “free lunches. When that moment happens, So-So Security will cease to work, pension funds will collapse, and America’s elderly will wail to the kids, “How could you betray our trust?!!”
The youth will respond, “How could you have betrayed ours?”
The kids will be right. Those of you planning to live off your pensions for another ten years are in for an horrific shock. The American debt is so big it can’t possibly be paid. There’s no point to destroying the lives of children to support a bunch of elders who were so greedy or stupid they actually trusted the government.
