The new debt clock gives us some clear information about our dire situation. Check it out here: The current number is $21.14 trillion and counting!


Our growing deficit (now 740.6 billion and counting) will continue to grow as spending much exceeds revenue. Mr. Trump’s policies have magnified the debt problem. Where is the discipline of our elected representatives? The above clock reveals some dire numbers:


  1. Total debt is now $69.9 trillion and growing. The government debt is $21.1 trillion.
  2. Social Security payments are now $963 billion (annually) and growing. We have no trust funds (savings) so these payments must come from general revenues going forward.

  5. Gold ratio is now at $4,739/ounce (based on world Au production/to M2 money supply increase). Paper Gold ratio is 76.09 to 1 (reveals enormous corruption in this market).
  6. Silver ratio is at $605/ounce (based on world Ag production/ to M2 money supply increase). Paper Silver ratio is 178.91 to 1 (reveals enormous corruption in this market).
  7. Unfunded Pension Liability is $6.1 trillion (collapse assured for millions).
