Our greatest threat isn't our current debt. It's the out-of-control spending by politicians and the unintended consequences it has for the domestic economy and international affairs. The root cause seems to be an extreme deficit of self-discipline and thrift. It's the bane of all prosperous civilizations.

The biggest threat to the American way of life is the out of control spending at all level of the government. Our representatives need to be sent a message (in some cases they may have received the first notice in Tuesday's elections) stop the run a way spending.
