Lawyer Sanders says it would take a whopping 336,322 years to count our national debt if you counted $1 per second 24 hours per day each and every day.

According to the U.S. Department of Treasury’s website, our total national debt as of October 9, 2008 is a staggering $10,266,382,646,543.62. Here is

Current

Debt Held by the Public

Intragovernmental Holdings

Total Public Debt Outstanding

10/09/2008

5,994,929,606,697.25

4,271,453,039,846.37

10,266,382,646,543.62

 

Did you ever wonder how long it would take you to count the national debt that existed on October 9, 2008?  Well, a million seconds is 12 days and a billion seconds is more than 31 years.  A trillion seconds is 31,688 years.  Therefore, if you counted the current national debt, as of October 9, 2008, and I mean counting it out at a dollar per second–24 hours a day, seven days a week until you were through–it would take you 336,322 years and four months.

I don’t know about you, but I am a fiscally conservative in my politics and views.  This staggering national debt load is truly outrageous and distressing, and is simply wrong for our great and proud nation.  This long-term financial nightmare is making us a debtor nation.  Eventually, the weight of this debt will stop our economy, our social programs, our military, and our national well being.

 

I strongly suggest we FIRE our Congress this coming election day because of this national debt that will slowly but surely choke the economy of this great country to a standstill.
