Tickets are only $7, and kids under 12 get in free! While others speak about surviving a future catastrophe, Michael will explain how we can avoid the imminent catastrophe posed by the $17 trillion debt. As Heritage reported earlier this year, the consequences of the national debt are staggering and will continue to worsen as the federal government ignores its responsibilities. Here are a few of the most troubling consequences: $53,769 – Your share of the national debt. As Washington continues to spend more than it can afford, every American will be on the hook for this massive debt burden. Eventually, someone has to pay the nation’s $17 trillion credit card bill, and Washington has nominated your family. It’s wildly irresponsible to never reduce expenses, yet Washington continues to spend, refusing to acknowledge the repercussions. Young people face a diminished future. College students from all over the country got together in February at a “Millennial Meetup” to talk about how the national debt impacts their generation. Makes us more vulnerable to the next economic crisis. According to the Congressional Budget Office’s 2012 Long-Term Budget Outlook, “growing federal debt also would increase the probability of a sudden fiscal crisis.” High debt makes America weaker. Even Britain’s Liam Fox warns America: Fix the debt problem now, or suffer the consequences of less power on the world stage. These consequences only scratch the surface of the disaster that awaits us. If we can’t hold Washington accountable, no one knows exactly how bad it will be. Fortunately, as Michael will explain, a Convention of States allows the people to force the federal government to balance their budget and become fiscally responsible. We’re in a bad situation, but it’s not too late to pull ourselves out! Join the COS Project today!
