I appreciate that young people are aware that the massive debt is going to fall on their shoulders and ruin their lives. But since the debt is the result of government spending, and the government still really likes to spend, I'm not optimistic about a solution coming from people who have been educated in government schools. The purpose of government controlled education is to preserve the status quo.

Remember that the president of the U.S. has no direct power to increase or decrease the deficit or the national debt. All spending bills originate in the House of Representatives. Congress decides what the budget will be, what taxes will be and where money will be spent. The president can veto a spending bill, and he has a lot of influence. Beyond that he has no direct control over the budget.

What the U.S. needs is a good, healthy, thriving, tax free, underground economy (i.e. black market).

All I can say is, HA!
It's no-one but America's fault, and no-one but America can fix it. It's what the government deserves for being so damn greedy since WWII and pretending to be the most powerful country in the world ;)

Within 50 years, the US will collapse juste like the USSR did.
It is useless to hope for a solution.

#1 and #16 the war in Afghanistan and Irak is one of the reason for this massive debt. So another war would only make matters worst. :|

One of the solution for global economic crisis is global war(observations of smart people), it is like system reset or something. Watch the graph at 6:30, after each war economy went up.

#3 Reseting the clock is of course possible.

But just like you having debts all over the place and not paying them back there are consequences. Part of the debt is the pension of every american, so basically every american will be broke the moment he stops working. Part of the debt is the for the medical bills you will cause if you get ill.

Also the government spends money for the streets, for police, for judges, for prisons, ...
So we stop paying for that too and just stop investing in such things.

Next there is about every country in the world that wants its money back so they can pay their pensions, their medical bills, their police and I guess some of them won't be threatened by a state that refuses to pay it's own army...

Damn, George Bush realy f***** up America. Buy more guns, buy more rockets, buy more tanks, soldiers are expendable,... Government has to change this, that´s of course if they give a s***!

#20 The debt didn't explode from buying guns, rockets, or tanks.

It's exploding to save the banks from their failures on mortgage loans, For the so-called 'Stimulus' projects, And Obamacare. Blaming George Bush is wrong, This mess is on Obama's head along with the democrat leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

This is a "civilized" version of Hypnotoad, brainwashing. this is a problem since the roman empire and it will remain that way till the rest of our days, just keeping your mind busy on a problem so you don't see the rest. Somethiong is going on people, be prepared!

George Bush was hunting Osama Bin Laden thinking he was the biggest enemy of the U.S.. In fact, Mr. Bush was the biggest enemy of his own country.

The war on drugs could have saved America a trillion (thats a real statistic btw) and made you another 2, it dont cover your warmongery, but it would be a start.

To answer the video title's question: no, this clip does not offer a solution to our national debt problem, although point two at 3:06 engenders a chuckle. Hopefully the actual film (as this is just a teaser) has more to offer and 3:23 proves to be more than just hot air.

I know this is difficult for most people to understand (the realness of normal distribution is sobering), and for most everyone else to accept (dismissing self-centered beliefs about reality requires phenomenal integrity), but we the people have created the national debt problem, penny by consumptive penny. And government is just a ten-letter word used to convey the concept of something else we the people have created, vote by unenlightened vote: yet another powerful other to, in most cases, blame for our individual shortcomings.

However, let there be no doubt. We built it and they have come; corruption is a natural symptom of the human condition. But they are part of us, and thus we have only ourselves to blame. I implore you to stop the madness, before it is too late. Too late not for humanity (I would have to be mad to speak like a prophet), but too late for yourselves as contributing members of society and conceivers of the future.

Prosperity and success above basic security and happiness, for the majority of us, are in reality the seeds of compensation and delusion, not the American Dream.
