I have a foolproof plan to eliminate the U.S. national debt. We should institute a national lottery with a $1 million first prize, five second-place $200,000 winners, 40 third-place $50,000 winners and 100,000 $1,000 winners.
We should also sell marijuana like a commodity on a national level. We also need to institute red-light districts, because they could save lives by eliminating pimps.
We would eliminate the debt in no time.
