Hello world
We understand that you have become accustomed to us leaping into the fray
Spending blood and treasure that you do not wish to spend yourselves

We need to have a little talk
You see, The United States of America is broke
We’ve been printing money to pay for past adventures
We’ve been sinking deeper and deeper into debt
The credit cards are all maxed out

We’d like to help
But the truth is
We just can’t afford it anymore

Our schools are failing
Our infrastructure is crumbling
Our jobs are disappearing

If you believe there are moral injustices that need to be addressed
Then you are going to need to step up and take care of them yourself
We will see you around sometime. Take care yourself! Goodbye!
