That is of course absolutely true. However I think the 
primary evil is not government debt, the mother of all evil is
 the large percentage of the economy that the government 
controls. I would rather see a small government deeply in
 debt than a huge government that can account for every
penny. Even better than both would be no government at all.

Samantha, on other matters we disagree very very deeply,
but on this particular question I don't think your opinion 
would be radical different from mine.
