Bonds are just like credit cards or any other consumer debt. It doesn't matter if we are buying "necessities" or not, we are selling out our town. Just ask those who were living off of credit cards what happens once you can't pay. After we rack up enough debt our taxes are going skyrocket and we no longer will we really "own" our town nor will we ever get out of debt. It is debt slavery and legalized stealing.
What we need to do is learn to live within our means and stop letting others plunder our town.
I wish we had more responsible representatives who understood finances better and I hope our town's people realize what is going on.
Thank you, Ed Plute, for pointing this out.
