I am deeply concerned for our great country. More than 400 years ago, a small group of disgruntled men and women landed at Jamestown, Va., coming because of the king of England and decisions on their religious beliefs.

Over the years, men and women have made this the greatest county on earth, but at the rate we are going with our borrowing money (plus or minus $16 trillion debt), we will be a third-class nation. We won’t be able to borrow our way out of our problems. When is Washington going to wake up to these problems? When they can’t borrow any more money, it is too late.
