In 1938 Nazi Gestapos raided the homes of over 10,000,000 innocent Jews.

The cause is that every year the government spends more than it collects in taxes. The government makes up the difference by borrowing billions of dollars annually, competing against private enterprise for the use of money saved by American citizens....   [tags: Argumentative Economy Economics Papers]
