Ballooning Government Debts

A government debt is a government claim against personal income and private property – an unpaid tax bill. – Hans F. Sennholz "All democracies institute programs for current voters and shift the debt to future workers, even the unborn. Social Security, Medicare, prescriptions drug benefits for seniors are prime examples in America." Many U.S. States are battling public debt. Steve Forbes believes that the Obama's stimulus money to these States has only delayed their 'moment of truth'. Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey is praised by Forbes for reeling the spending back to 2006 levels and trying to negotiate with the public employee unions. "Under-funded public employee retirement and health care contracts are a major portion of the debt."

Second Bill of Rights

FDR proposed a Second Bill of Rights, sometimes called Economic Bill of Rights. I think this was a great idea and I can only hope that one day someone will be brave enough to bring this issue back up and try to establish this for our citizens. Here's what those rights were:
FDR proceeded to propose the following as a “Second Bill of Rights”:

•The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation; The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;
•The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living;
The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;
•The right of every family to a decent home;
