I think that there are so many problems financially in the United States that all of them put together pose the greatest risk for us.
The biggest concern that I have is the national debt that we have. Although they have been trying to take control of the situation this is going to be the problem that is going to cause our children problems when they are all grown up. If you really think about it we are already having problems with the national debt by the recessions that have hit us really hard. Our kids are going to be the one's that are going to suffer from this and I would not be surprised if something in the ranges of another depression happen in our life time. Although the government is trying to do everything that they can to limit themselves on how much money that they spend I think that our biggest area that burned money through our tax payer dollars was being involved with two wars at the same time. I think that the fact that we were helping out Iraq become a better country I think that a bill should be sent to them to pay for at least a portion of our stay there to cover some of the cost that were made while occupying there country.
Another contributing factor to our problem has been the companies that the United States said were to big to let them fail and therefore costing the tax payers several billions of dollars. I think what should have been done is that the government should have let those companies fail for making bad business decisions in the first place.
Another thing that we have to do is make sure that these same companies that are making bad business choices do not get a single dime for bonuses to pay there top level management. I think that this is a slap in the face to me and for other tax payers out there that have to listen to these companies complain about giving bonuses to there management after getting bailed out by our tax payer dollars.
Our government needs to be a lot more strict and demanding if we are ever going to get out of the mess that we are in right now.
