World-renowned speaker Tony Robbins has devoted some time to discussing America’s gargantuan $16 trillion national debt. In this video, he shares figures inspired by blogger Iowahawk, where he uses visual aids to break down our unfathomable debt. It’s twenty minutes long and I urge you to spend every minute watching it.
At the end, Robbins asks viewers to write their Congressperson and president. Don’t waste your time, because they won’t listen. When has your government ever listened to you? The next step isn’t a phone call or letter, but bold actions. We’ve reached a critical point in our history that demands an outright replacement of a cancerous government overtaken by lobbyists, corrupt politicians and arithmetic-challenged planners who believe everything is fine.
Guess what? America is far from fine. We’re in deep trouble, and we won’t solve our problems by playing partisan politics. You can’t save your country as a conservative or liberal. These political ideologies serve no one and has done more harm than good. The time is now to think clearly and independently of your party and Washington.
