How much is one $Trillion ?

Debt burden

Ever wonder how to figure out how much $Trillion is? No doubt you’ve heard how big our national debt and our deficit is.  While I’ve vowed NOT to make this a political website, I do feel it’s important to put this in perspective.

Growing every year, the debt stands today at a staggering $11.4 trillion — equivalent to about $37,000 for each and every American. And it’s expanding by over $1 trillion a year.

Well, I just wanted to put in perspective exactly how much money 1$Trillion is.

See if you can relate to this:  If you count $1 dollar every second it would take you 31,700 years to count it!

Don’t believe me?  See the math below:

Number of seconds in a day = 86,400

Number of days it would take you to count $1Billion = 11,574

Number of years it would take you to count $1Billion = 31.7 years

Number if years it would take you to count $1Trillion = 31,700 years

That’s right, 31,700 years to count $1Trillion and that’s how fast our national debt EXPANDS each year.  How can this madness continue?

What should you do?  The only thing I can recommend is to start taking steps NOW to insulate yourself from this.  Eventually, this is going to cause a drastic affect on every American whether you like it or not.

Tomorrow, I’ll post some suggestions as to what you can start to do NOW.

So the next time you hear that our government is going to spend $1Trillion dollars on something, remember it would take you at least 31,700 years to count it!

In the meantime, I think I’ll just let this sink in…..

Declare YOUR OWN independence

power_of_choiceAs we celebrate the 233rd year of our country’s independence, consider declaring YOUR OWN independence too.  What do I mean?  I’m talking about declaring that you will no longer be dependent on our government or your job for you existence and identity.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you don’t need a job or our government.  But I urge you to become less dependent on them.  Only then are you truly a modern survivalist and truly free.

What would you do if you lost the primary income earner in your household?  Perhaps you’re already in that situation?  What would you do if a regional weather disaster hit your area and you had to evacuate for a few days or a week?  Something as simple as losing power to your home for a few days can be disastrous if you don’t have a plan.

What if you were asked to evacuate and you were given 30 minutes to get you and your family out of your home?  Do you have and emergency bag?  Do you have a pre-set place to go?

Think about these things and “declare your own independence” today as well.  Stay tuned to this website and our forum for more info daily.

Happy Birthday America and welcome to a new way of life for you and your family!
