Debt reduction is No. 1 priority

Well, it looks like the voters are going to make another horrendous mistake in electing the next president – either party!

We have a national debt that is absolutely shameful. As it stands, we could pay $50 billion a year toward the debt and it would require 380 years to pay off our $19 trillion debt, not including interest. We should be ashamed of ourselves for saddling at least 15 future generations with such lunacy.

Any candidate who does not commit his or her platform to eliminating or at least substantially reducing our debt, should be disqualified from running.

Our high schools, colleges and universities are tremendously guilty of not presenting this debt problem to our young people. That will increase this pending disaster because these are our future leaders, and they have no clue.
