It would take us 525,000 years to repay our debt

Here is an example of why we need to not raise the debt ceiling: 16,000,000,000,000 (16 trillion) seconds ago was 525,000 years ago. If we repaid our debt at the rate $1 every second, it would take us 525,000 to do so. If we repaid our debt at the rate of $86,400 per day, it would take us 525,000 years to do so. 
 We should not raise the debt ceiling.  Is there a risk in not doing so?  Yes.  Do we yet have 20-20 vision or hindsight?  No.  Should we not raise the debt ceiling anyway?  Yes.  We need to make hard decisions.  We need to allow our elected officials to make hard decisions.  Everyone can't have everything they want now.  Ask not what your Country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your Country.
