  • If you are an obama supporter.... please take your left hand and raise it up into air, with you right hand please slap yourself. Now go out and buy yourself a calculator, then learn to use it. That is all, Thank You.

  • The government cannot create wealth it can only print, tax and borrow. PEOPLE create wealth, along with jobs and innovation and technology.

    The government needs to limit its spending to match their revenue.
    PEOPLE need to learn how to fend for themselves and not rely on the government.

    Taxing the “rich” is a distraction and not a solution.

    • @yorba Don't hold your breath, the Repubs just spent like drunking sailors with little george for 8 years and they aren't going to stop anytime soon. In case you didn't hear Mitt the magical underpants wearer wants to increase spending for the Navy and the Air force and doesn't think we should be getting out of Afghanistan, never mind that it takes a million dollars a year to field a solider.

    • @conservative hispanic Your missing the point on the "occutards", they were protesting the banks and trading houses that got off scott free after manufacturing the financial fiasco of 2006 onwards.
      The numbers, The NUMBERS! are un-payable even if we ditch social security and Medicare and the Military budget, this Ponzzie scheme is going to go bust eventually. Events like these usually are settled by global war at 10 paces.... turn and shoot.

      If you see what the Occupy Wall Street movement has developed into, is nothing but a movement to push socialism in this country. The whole movement is filled with radicals and Marxist, certainly that's something that we need less in this country. But some of them have good points, and in certain areas do agree with the Tea Party. In theory, they're both against the Federal Reserve, which what is hurting this country and global economy more than anything else.

  • Good video. The $15 trillion federal debt will never be repaid but will eventually evaporate into thin air along with the fiat dollar. If you are a young person some day you will need to know how to barter and use silver and gold.

      Yes, because all the extra revenue would certainly go towards grandma and her medicine and not 800k dollar Las Vegas getaways.

    • @Duckmanlivesagain he doesn't pay less, he only pays a capital gains rate because he's not salary. YOU and I can do the same exact thing.

      Better option would be to lower and flatten all tax rates down to 15 or 9%

    • @ZazzMazta He by no means is the best president this country has ever had but if you actually expect me to believe that the Retard I mean repubs are going to do better with G Bush Jr. in the rear-view and Mitt Romney the magical underpantz in front. Your kidding yourself, it's going to be pretty much more of the same.

  • you can point out the futility of obombo's economic policy, you can break it down to stacks of peanut butter sandwiches, or any bone head analogy you want and still the masses will "feel the tingle up their legs" when the messiah dressed in a blue suit speaks his jinglelistic bull shit. People only hear what they want to hear.

    • @Fukmup Are you saying I should vote for Romney ? the man who said he would expand the paramilitaries budget... guess he'll sell more bonds to China. The shit is in the wind and this house of cards is going to fall... just wonder how long any administration can hide it and what they are capable of doing when it happens and ppl go ape shit.

    • @TOPDECK
      Don't forget, Corporations are made up of tax payers(some make tons of reduced taxed money in investments and are smarter than the rest of us - like Romney). The corporation itself does not pay tax, because it makes no money. All profit goes to the officers(if any). The rest of the money goes to the employees and other over-head and operating expenses. 10k in taxes, did you forget about all the other taxes (ie sales tax and property tax, etc)?
      That's our system. Don't like it? Vote in More..

    • @TOPDECK taxes levied on corporations are paid by the consumer. Something not taught in government schools it seems.

  • Goverments have unlimited earnings,and revenue in taxes.This guy is going on about paying everything back in a year!GB only finished paying the U.S.A back for lend lease in 1945 a couple of years ago.They borrow by predicting growth over ten or twenty years.If you dont get that growth,that when the shit hits the fan.Its like credit card where you just make a minumum payment each month.Buyers of goverment bonds dont give a fuck as long as they get their return.

    • @drivenwell2 Trouble is the interest just keeps growing and growing and growing and the America sells more bonds so as to just be able to make an interest payment, how long can that go on.

    • @givemeadamnname Thats why its important to keep your AAA.America is still getting growth 2.5% i think, so they arnt in as bad a shape as some.China is achieving 8% although theirs is showing signs of slacking off.

  • I didn't even have to watch, the opening shot of this supreme bullshit artist is all I need to see! LOL I've heard this self-promoter quite a few times over the years. He is an excellent speaker and he's been able to turn it into big bucks for himself. Not a problem with that, I'm just not sending him any of my money.

  • It took him this long to jump on the band wagon and offer his version of the national debt for dummies yet he offers nothing to help solve the problem. Good job genius, now shut up and pay a flat tax on every penny that goes into any of your accounts.....capital gains, savings, personal checking, non-profits, charities, all of it! If everyone did that, including all corporate income and especially churches, I'm guessing the rate would be somewhere between 10 and 15% and would pay for everything More..

    • @edfmaniac

      Why does he have to offer a solution, that's not the point he's trying to make. It's an educational piece and he does a great job of explaining it. Most people have no idea how much debt we have and/or what a deficet is.

      A "solution" is a whole different video...all by itself.

    • @major05 He doesn't have to offer anything but it would have been nice to hear where he would focus. And if you still need help understanding the problem that our country faces, you need more than Tony Robbins' rehashed version of some bloggers explanation. There are enough videos online that put the debt in terms that are easy to understand. We need ideas on how to fix it other than just a change in the White House. Everyone seems to forget that Congress continues to screw our brains out no mat More..

    • @ZazzMazta I watched the whole thing but his points aren't useful for anything. And if 10 to 15% of all money paid out daily in the US isn't enough to cover our daily expenses, it's because we are paying interest to private bankers who loan us fake money, our own fake money. Not once did Mr. Robbins mention the interest payments made to the Fed or why we pay them interest in the first place. If he did I missed it.
