Debt is Slavery

This Christmas, I ask all of you to give yourself the best gift in the world...Freedom.
Freedom from debt, and a desire to break the chains that shackle you.

Debt was seen as wealth for the past decade but the reality is it is nothing but slavery. Those who live above their means are destined to live beneath their means, and we have lived above our means for to long. Imagine what you could do with the money you made if you did not have a car payment, credit card payment, multiple credit card payments, heloc loan payments, or god forbid, a house payment.

What would you do if you could put that money to work for you? If you could use it gain interest and build wealth rather then pay interest that slowly leads to impoverishment.

It is time to save money, it is time to pay off debt, and it is time to break free of debt slavery.

It is said and is true that NOTHING you can buy on "credit" makes you feel nearly as good as being debt free. I have enjoyed that for the last 15 years. I am a consumer, but I consume and pay as I go. Your post was inspiring and should be to all who read it Chris.

I've been out of debt for 9 years. Unfortunately during those 9 years many people have been bidding up the price of everything with HELOC's and credit cards. Hopefully if everyone has to live within their means I'll start being more competitive. Unfortunately Ben and Hanky want to keep the game going the way it was.
