These words were spoken by Abraham Lincoln in the Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863. Here we are in the United States 147 years, 260 days later.


We are watching Congress. At this second, we are $14,546,716,998,177 in debt. It took me 6 seconds to type that number, and the debt raised $262,554(Over 260 THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!) while I was typing.


We have to get a handle on our spending in the Federal Government. Even if a lot of these suggestions only saved thousands of dollars, that is thousands of less dollars on which we have to pay interest!


Let's incorporate as many of these suggestions as possible. FDR said that "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself."


Let's eliminate the fear, do what we know is right, do what the American Taxpayers deserve, and START INCORPORATING THESE SUGGESTIONS TO SAVE ALL FEDERAL AGENCIES MONIES TODAY!!!

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
