EVERYONE IS BROKE BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A DEBT SLAVE ANY LONGER

Everyone is Broke But YOU Don’t Have to Be a Debt Slave Any Longer
by Dylan CharlesEditor Waking Times

Look around in this fancy land called the U.S. and you’ll get the impression that people are just rolling in dough. They got fabulous new cars, expensive houses loaded up with imported goods, the latest smart phones, designer wardrobes, and they’re never about to turn down a good time.

But it’s all an illusion. It’s fake.

In reality, 80% of Americans are in debt and living paycheck to paycheck. Which means most of us are broke, and almost nobody owns anything at all. All that great stuff you see all around isn’t true prosperity, it’s owned by banks and it all serves as chains in a modern form of slavery.

Americans owe over $1 trillion on just their cars, another $1 trillion in household credit card debt,  $1.5 trillion in federally insured student loan debt$8.8 trillion in mortgage debt, and all the while 40% of U.S. households are paying down medical debt. To add insult to all this injury, the national debt is now over $22 trillion, and growing 36% faster than the economy.

Debt slavery is the new normal, and it’s no accident.

We’re part of an economic and monetary system built on debt, and our culture has been warped by decades of scientifically minded marketing, advertising and consumer programming, and our cities and communities have been designed and organized for shopping, not for sharing and communing. Strip malls and big box stores have replaced the town square.

It is what it is, and it’s not going away any time soon, but the personal consequences of chronically being in debt are severe.

There’s the stress and worry of it all, and what that does to your health. There are the lost dreams and wishes unfulfilled.  The exorbitant and crushing bank fees, penalties, and high interest rates, backed up by collections agencies and organized harassment. The damage it does to marriages and the broken homes, and perhaps most insidious, there’s the spiritual malaise of being a slave.

But you can escape. Anyone can. I mean, to be honest, you’re not going to escape the disaster of government debt, because as individuals we have no control over what the lunatics and crooks in government do. That’s another conversation, but you don’t have to tolerate a life as a slave to personal debt. You don’t have to live forever with student loans, car payments and mountains of credit card debt.

What’s at stake here is you freedom. That is, the quality of your life in the short time you get to be alive here on earth.

Financial literacy is not something most of us learn in school, and so very few of us have had positive examples of this in our lives, but there is a system to get out of debt that works very well, and there is a network of support that can teach you how, get you inspired, and keep you motivated as you walk your own path to freedom.

Having found myself in deeply debt a couple of times in life, and then working my way to being 100% debt free, I can tell you that there is really no feeling quite as joyful as being free.

The method I have found that works the best to achieve this is referred to as the ‘debt snowball’ and is outlined in the book, The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness by Dave Ramsey. I was about to spell it out for you when I found an exceptional breakdown of it by Daisy Luther of the excellent blog, The Organic Prepper. Check it out, as it is the quickest way to get yourself out of debt…
