Alstry's Point w/o Hyperbole
America is a nation with a population of 310-320 million people.
Currently, about 140-150 million of those people are reported to be employed.
America runs a National Deficit of over $1.5 trillion dollars. Enough to pay 50,000,000 of the above employed people over $30K per year.
If America did not run such a deficit....tens of millions of people would lose their jobs/incomes.
The issue, for all of us, now is how does America equitably provide goods and services to over 300,000,000 million people when technology is driving unprecedented efficiencies and causing cash flow to evaporate across the nation?
If you are one of the few who are getting bailed out...those with financial assets, you are happy.
If you are one of the increasing number that are not getting bailed out, you are getting increasingly angry...now to the point where people are finally protesting.
This issue will soon reach a head...those that are getting bailed out vs. those that are not.....and when you are dealing with millions of people on each side, you have a very interesting problem...which will likely soon make the ticker irrelevant.
