Running to Stand Still – The Student Debt Terror-Mill

1463685_562100227239696_1065342689447175465_nAmericans aren’t even running to stand still anymore. They’re running, alright – faster than ever – but now they’re going downhill.

And it’s not because the “economy is bad.” It’s because “the table is tilted and the game is rigged,” as the late George Carlin so succinctly put it. But “nobody seems to notice and nobody seems to care.”

It’s the main problem Americans face today. They are largely unaware that these horrible results don’t simply spring from nowhere. They’re the deliberate outcome of hundreds upon hundreds of laws and policies calculated to get us here.

And yes, I checked to confirm whether social security and medicare can be tapped for unpaid student loans. Yes, they can – since 1996. They can’t take it all but they can shave it down to $750 a month, which is far less than you need to survive these days.

So if you haven’t already realized that Americans have been railroaded into a life of debt slavery, it’s time to start paying attention and exploring the origin and fundamentals of money – and how it’s destroying our economy.
