> US Debt

I don’t know if I see US debt as my main concern, but it definitely is a concern for me. I just can’t think of any solution that people can use (that is politically viable), so I tend to ignore it. 

I could feel much more comfortable with a “zero sum” or positive budget. Or if we were at least making above-minimum payments. 

But taxes are notoriously unpopular. The only way to raise them, it seems, is to bait and switch. 

> Mother Jones

I wouldn’t characterize the Magazine as a rag, but it is a good indicator of “Left” thought in the US, which is composed of many different, competing streams of thought. The US “Left” isn’t and can’t be unified when it contains Socialists, Communists, Left-libertatians, Anarchists, Social Democrats, among others.
