    Time to Sacrifice


    My name is Byron Thomas and America; my American Dream is simply reducing that 17+ trillion dollar debt that our country currently has for our future generations. This dream is NOT impossible, but it will take some huge sacrifices from the current generation and my generation to sacrifice like no other to at least stop the bleeding. If we form the attitude that we’re determined for our country to be debt free, then that attitude should rub off on future generations. But if we keep this current attitude of spending money on things we can’t afford, being irresponsible with money, and just plain selfishness and laziness; then that’s the attitude that’ll be rubbed off on future generations. The answer isn’t taxing the rich more or giving the poor more handouts. The answer is simply TEAM work and sacrifice.


    I truly believe that God still has his hands on this country and nothing is impossible when God’s on your side. So I’m prepared to sacrifice for your future kids and my future kids, what about you? Overwhelm People with Love and May God Bless the United States of America
