“But What Can We Do?”
Last Saturday I was invited to speak at an event in Asheville, NC and discuss the book. I spoke for about fifteen minutes on my background and why I wrote “Currency and then opened it up for questions.” My girlfriend joined me and we found the audience to be engaging and serious.
The issue of the national debt dominated the discussion. My emphasis was on the national security aspects of the problem but the conversation drifted toward possible solutions.
The main reaction I encountered was one of fear for the future and a general feeling of helplessness. “But what can we do?” one woman asked. “The politicians don’t seem to be able to deal with the problem.”
My hope for the general election is that both sides will offer serious plans to tackle this crushing burden. Historians may look upon this as the greatest challenge that America has ever faced.
