Newt Gingrich does not believe Americans should sacrifice.

In a TIME magazine article on November 1, 2008, Newt Gingrich said:

"People don't elect presidents who tell them to sacrifice. They elect presidents who solve problems so they don't have to sacrifice."

This is further evidence that Baby-boomers are the most selfish generation in U.S. history.  Baby-boomers have been unwilling to pay for all of the government services they have used.  The public debt began to rise dramatically around 1980, when Baby-boomers began to play a significant role in running both the government and the private sector.  And the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are the first time in American history when Americans have insisted on tax cuts in a time of war.  Many Americans seem unwilling to make sacrifices for any cause - not even for war or national defense.
