Being an outsider, I'm not entirely sure what these figures mean. Is it that aft 43 presidents, the US had $6.3 trillion of debt and now it's $6.5? Or is it $ 12.8?

Could you source that? And you really think it is that simple?

Surely America cannot elect Romney and Ryan. It would be like voting in Waldorf and Statler from "The Muppet Show". Stick with President Obama! A vote for decency, fairness and intelligent leadership! Numerical figures can often be misleading Mr Brague.

I probably should have entitled this post "One reason why the U.S. election, etc...." I certainly didn't mean to imply that the national debt is the only reason the election is important.

I'll address your comments one at a time.

Shooting Parrots, my understanding is that the national debt of the U.S. has more than doubled since President Obama came into office.

Reamus, it's just a picture someone sent me in an e-mail. Nothing is that simple. Here is a little light reading for you.

Putz (1), I do not respond to comments containing certain words.

Putz (2), what is Moleworts?

Putz (3), I agree completely. NOTHING IS ever TAHT SOM,PLE

Yorkshire Pudding, sticking with President Obama would be like voting for George III.

I was intrigued by this so did some research (well I used Google). As far as I can tell, the US national debt rose steadily, but stayed below one trillion until around 1980. It then rose sharply under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush again until it approached the seven trillion mark in 2004.

I'm not sure what this tells you except that ALL politicians like spending our money and starting wars is a good way to do it.

Really. Wiki is a soursce? of what? Certainly not complex economic trtruths.

The Congress appropriates the funds, the Executive executes the laws, the Judiciary interprets the law. As I said, Nothing is as simple as posting a picture of the current President and suggest HE personally added that much to the national debt. I know you to be much smarter than that, Robert.
