Trump's book is outstanding at summarizing the problems our country faces today. I was impressed well he underlined the seriousness of our problem: we are a debtor nation that has run up more debt during the current administration than in all our country's previous history-- yet we have a current government that is more interested in expanding its own programs, power and political base than dealing with this serious situation. The current Administration may argue it was necessary bailing out the 1%, namely Wall Street and the Banks, plus the Auto Industry to save us from an even worse recession. Donald Trump makes me realize our magnitude of debt is so that history may show we actually took the cowardly path in using debt for bailouts-- rather than deal with the problem and take the pain here and now, we have elected to borrow our way to a soft landing and pass the costs of our current recession to future generations. How would we have dealt with today's recession if our forebears had structured World War II's costs such that we were still paying for the war in 2011? Future generations will have no autonomy to deal with their own problems because they will be paying off the problems we have today. That is why it is simply reckless to further expand government programs and institute national health care when no level of tax increases can finance our current level of government spending. No level of government initiative will ever allow us to reach the utopia that supporters of government expansion seek. I spent many years living in Eastern Europe where everyone already has "free" health care that no one given private care alternatives wants to use.
