"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

So, Exactly How Much IS A Trillion Dollars?

In case you didn't know, it’s a million dollars with 12 zero’s after it!! And we now have a deficit with 14 of those Trillions!! Think that’s a responsible government in action? And, also in case you didn't know, a million dollars is equal to 10,000 $100.00 bills! Here’s the breakdown:

1 Million = 1,000,000.00
10 Million = 10,000,000.00
100 Million = 100,000,000.00
1000 Million = 1,000,000,000.00
10,000 Million = 10,000,000,000.00
100,000 Million = 100,000,000,000.00
1,000,000 Million = 1 Billion or 1,000,000,000,000.00
10 Billion = 10,000,000,000,000.00 = 10,000 Million
100 Billion = 100,000,000,000,000.00 = 100,000 Million
1000 Billion = 1,000,000,000,000,000.00
10,000 Billion = 10,000,000,000,000,000.00
100,000 Billion = 100,000,000,000,000,000.00
1,000,000 Billion = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000.00
10,000,000 Billion = 10,000,000,000,000,000,000.00
100,000,000 Billion = 100,000,000,000,000,000,000 .00

Then there’s 1,000,000,000 Billion, a Billion Billion, or one Trillion, which reads 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.00!!!

Does the government even have a clue? We certainly didn't have any direct input in that result. What could you do with just a small portion of that amount? And how, exactly, is the government going to eliminate that deficit if they aren't willing to cut spending dramatically. Anyone who is against cutting spending should be voted out in 2012. Only then can we seriously and effectively begin the process of reducing government spending and eliminating the debt that has a chokehold on America.
