A Short History of Voluntary Citizen Debt Retirement Donations
By Lucile McConnell
I founded the non-for-profit organization The Fund to End the Deficit in 1993 and rallied citizens, under Public Law 87-58 (P.L. 87-58), to make voluntary contributions to retire the National Debt through 1999. As Executive Director of The Fund, I traveled across the Land giving out Susan Vaughn Clayton Liberty awards to recognize the voluntary initiatives of everyday citizens who love America and wanted to give something back to this great Country that has given so much to each of us.
The more that I engaged in citizen participation to retire America's National Debt, the more inspired I became by all the creative things citizens were doing to retire the Debt:
The list goes on and onů.Now, I want to tell the story of the power of a positive healing vision and a willing heart to shape our future and redeem our beloved Country. The Good News is that we are empowered NOW to create the Future of Our Choice, thanks to one American citizen, Susan Vaughan Clayton; one Congressman from Florida, Charles Bennett; and one American President, John F. Kennedy. Together in 1961, they forged the original Partnership for America's Future and initiated Public Law (P.L.) 87-58, which empowers every American citizen today, regardless of age, to make voluntary contributions of money to the Country on the condition that these contributions are used only to retire the existing principal of the National Debt. This is an idea whose time has come: voluntary citizen contributions can and will shape the destiny of America! We are the heroes that we are looking for!
What we cannot do alone, we can do together. The power is in the numbers and with over 313 million citizens in America, the small contributions of individuals do add up. [empowered to participate in the great undertaking of retiring America's National Debt] The contribution of one person, multiplied by the positive contributions of others, all acting in agreement, accumulates into serious change. This is the change that Mr. Penny brings about in this inspiring and uplifting story of the power that one healing positive vision and one willing heart have to unite the little people into courageous action for the good of all. Mr. Penny and I invite you to get rollin', America! Welcome to the Future of Our Choice!
"Get your pennies ON!" Mr. Penny.
