The only danger to this picture is that you get numb to the magnitude of the problem. Here are a couple of sites that will help put this into perspective for you. The solution begins at your household, and in your community, and in your state, and ultimately at the federal level. I would suggest that if everyone does what he/she can about the problem and will not tolerate debt at a local level, then we will be surprised at how quickly we can rebound from this problem. If however, we continue to live beyond our means the nation and this great experiment in liberty will fail, sadly.
Are we fulfilling the instructions from our heavenly Father?
Some other links to help put these numbers in perspective:

We have a problem with big numbers…
There are additional links on the Debt Clock site which will take you to a debt clock for your own state. I intend to post the one for my state on an appropriate state website. Hope you will do the same. In the meantime, please convince your neighbors and your church and your community to get debt free and prepare for rough sledding ahead. There is a penalty to a society for failing to keep promises that will impact every single one of us. We will have lots of opportunities to educate people on both the wisdom of the Lord and His instructions to us and the wisdom of our founding fathers when they gave us a Republic and a Constitution and challenged us to see if we could keep it.
There is one man who is telling Congress No and has done so consistently for over 30 years. Let’s all continue to work hard to put him in the white house in 2012 so we will have someone there who understands limited constitutional government. Thank God for Ron Paul. His campaign website is RonPaul2012.com and the Grassroots Team is RonPaulForums.com .
