When citizens have a mortgage and carry at least some type of revolving debt, they are now enslaved to the system working to please the banker overlords. Now the population is running like rats on a wheel with their heads down too busy to pay attention to do anything about the government corruption and shenanigans. Just think how empowered Americans would be if they were debt free and stayed out of debt. However, if everyone saved, paid off their debt and only spent when they had the money the entire financial system would collapse in 2 seconds. Because, fiat money is debt. Crazy, the system is almost there anyway. Oh, if they can't enslave us with debt, then they do the same with welfare. An awake debt free independent criticality thinking 2A supporter is their worst enemy.
