What is even more worrying to me is that just about everyone realizes this, but most are apathetic... feeling powerless (you can't change DC, etc.) about it.
Regardless of your political affiliation, this graph of US debt over time is both embarrassing and frightening (data from www.treasurydirect.gov). Interestingly, $1 in 1940 would be almost $15 today, so I guess it's bad, but not quite as bad as it seems. Would be nice to have some green in there.
