14 reasons why the U.S. government will never have a balanced budget ever again

The United States government will never have another balanced budget again.  Yes, you read that correctly.  U.S. government finances have now reached a critical "tipping point" and things are going to spin wildly out of control from this time forward.  Why?  Spending on entitlement programs and interest on the national debt are now accelerating at exponential rates.  Some time around 2020 they will eat up every single dollar of federal revenue that is brought in before a penny is spent on anything else.  Of course the solution to all of this would be to radically cut entitlement programs, but no U.S. politician in his or her right mind would do that.  After all, do you think elderly people (who vote in droves by the way) would vote for you after you just cut their Social Security checks in half?  That is not the way the world works.  You see, democracies always get into trouble once the people realize that they can vote for the candidates that promise them the largest gifts out of the public treasury.  That is where the United States is at now.  Over 100 million Americans now receive direct payments from the United States government.  For millions of Americans, the American Dream now means getting a government check and kicking back and enjoying life.  We have become a nation that is chock full of people that can't take care of themselves and that are totally dependent on the monolithic nanny state that the U.S. government has created.

Marc Faber: The US national debt is already is 600 percent of GDP

"According to my calculations it is impossible that the American government can fulfill its obligations because the current deficit is over one trillion , this year 1.6 trillion , And that will not come under one trillion and that increase the national debt .The Total debt is already 375% of the GDP , but that does not still include the not yet covered debts of medicaid medicare and social security, if you would include it then the national debt is already 600% of the GDP , So they have to massively print money in the future that will lead to an inflation and recession in the same time , so they might get into a depression and synchronized an inflation as they have in Zimbabwe , The result will be that they will intervene in a war - and the americans are good in finding enemies around the world , That will end in a big conflict and the whole system will collapse" This scenario won't happen tomorrow but in the next 5-10 years guaranteed Marc Faber added

How is it ever going to be possible to balance a budget when all money is created by the banking system as an interest bearing loan?
