Vote For Bill Scheurer!
Below is an email correspondence between me and Bill Scheurer, who's running for Congress and who pledges to fight against debt.
If any of you are from his district, or know anyone in his district, then he's the one to vote for!!!

I agree. In fact, my pledge is to not vote for any deficit budget, OR any debt extension (which is where the bonds come in).
Please spread the word about our campaign!

I saw your post on Alternet, and I like your ideas.
I want to recommend that you begin your struggle to balance the budget by eliminating government bonds and ending the practice of interest.
My recommendation is backed up by sound reasoning and it's available online at http://wakeupfromyourslumber.blogspot.com/2005/11/why-would-you-loan-money-to-someone-if_09.html
Interest is gutting America's physical economy. Look at every company that's cutting jobs today and see how much they spend on interest. Look at what the federal government spends on interest.
Then ask where does the money come from to pay all this interest? The only place it can come from--principal--the people's principal, a.k.a., our hides. The government doesn't issue interest; it only issues prinicipal.
Thanks for your time. God bless you and good luck in your endeavors.
