International Debt for North America (Discussion)

Back again with another post! This post is going to be a 'discussion' like post, where the readers (like you!) can post your opinions in the comments. Today's topic is going to be regarding North American debt. How do you feel, knowing that the U.S. owes other countries around the world $14.1 trillion? Canada isn't doing so well, either. Us Canadians owe $560 million. That's $16.5k per person!

How do YOU feel about this? Now's your time to be heard by others. Speak your mind!

Feels awful, especially in my situation where I have no income. Unemployment is garbage in California. :<

Shocking amount of debt. Most other western countries aren't looking much better.

Interesting, just read that the netherlands make about $600,000,000 in cannabis taxes and the projected number for USA was closer to 700,000,000

Canada's debt is no where near as close as the US fortunately. But I gotta agree with Joefiss. Taxing cannabis would a great way to help combat this.
