Pajamas Media » Can We Privatize the National Debt?
Now this is truly a new idea and why should the Federal Government be the biggest land holder in America the land of the free. I also would like to add that if we dumped a bunch of unnecessary federal departments, there would be even more land and buildings up for sale and less government to cover with the money earned. The government could actually make money, scary thought huh. There are lands and buildings that shouldn't be mortgaged, but there is plenty of fat that could easily be sold off and we could then lower corporate taxes to make doing business in America a good idea again. If we pay off the National Debt the dollar would be incredibly strong again and we could do just about anything we wanted monetarily. I have said it time and time again we have to make it worthwhile to do business in America and also pay off the National Debt, this appears to be a way forward to those goals. Of course it will never see the light of day in Congress and I am sure Congress would find a way to screw it up on an epic scale, since they have demonstrated their massive propensity for ineptitude time and time again.
