0 is the only acceptable National Debt sign now

The National Debt is a drain on the American dream. In the year 2004 $321,566,323,971.29 (thats billions) of tax payers money went to just the interest. This is unacceptable!

The comptroller general of the General Accounting Office, David Walker is quoted by Terence Samuel ( of The American Prospect ) as saying "[W]e could be doing nothing more than paying interest on federal debt in 2040 if we don't end up engaging in some fundamental reforms of entitlement programs, mandatory spending, discretionary spending and tax policy,".

The signers of this petition demand that the President and all members of Congress do not introduce, pass, or debate any new laws or bills until a budget plan is passed that eliminates the national debt completely. To achieve this goal we demand that a spending freeze and pay as you go policy is put in effect. Nothing in the U.S. budget may increase without the money to pay for it, either by budget cuts or raising taxes. The only exception would be laws or bills concerning national security may be debated and passed, however they still would be subject to the pay as you go policy.

The signers of this petition do not claim to have a budget plan which accomplishes the goal of a debt free America. We do know it may only be achieved by budget cuts or tax increases. How exactly it is achieved is your job, and we ask that you do your job.

The American citizens that survived WWII and the Great Depression are referred to as the last great generation. The time has come for the next great American generation to step up and be counted. We are willing to sacrifice today for a better tomorrow for our children.

All signers of this petition also promise to only vote for political candidates who pledge to abide by this petition.
