Wow - good read.

Investment wise...are you dipping your toes in? Suggestions? The US provides a lot of light sweet crude.

Getting rid of slavery, Western expansion, becoming a global super power, and women's suffrage all radically changed America. I'm glad we don't still only have the mindset and laws from 1777. Don't be ignorant.

And thatís before trying to save money for college educations, retirement etc. The remaining $1500 doesnít go far for a family of four, and weíre talking average household income in the US and not low wage earners. In fact, I would suggest that most months itís a struggle to make ends meet, and a good month they might break even by $100-200.

I agree with a ton of what youíre saying, but giving that average family breathing room by relieving them of $1000-1200 a month of debt payments makes all the difference in the world to them. That assumes that they continue to spend and save wisely and save up for the next purchase instead of financing it. They can eventually start getting some of those nicer things. Suddenly they might be able to save up a rainy day fund for the if in life, and not throw that on a CC or whatnot. Saving for college becomes a real possibility. Even matching their 401k is doable with $4-500 left to spare at the end of the month.

It matters. Just giving them extra money without changing their spending and saving behaviors accomplishes nothing. Itís just how to be poor while working with extra zeroes. But it is doable if not particularly en vogue.
Bingo
Most of the people I talk to about debt have this problem! In many cases it is vanity purchases and numerous and continuous small amounts that consume peoples income.
