The nation is in a terrible financial shape - indebtedness and on the brink of disaster.
Who's to blame? None other than members of the U.S. Congress who have recklessly spent our money here and around the world in a carefree and irresponsible manner.
Those politicians who "we the people" have trusted have put the nation in jeopardy. It is up to each of us, as they come up for re-election, to investigate his or her position on fiscal matters, and if they have been a party to this exorbitant spending, to responsibly vote them out of office.
