Debt is the tax on future labor. Debt beyond 19 years repayment is a tax on the future labor of children imposed without consent, Taxation without Representation.
The Federal government began violation the Divided Sovereignty of the Constitution following the 17th Amendment by monopolizing transportation, energy, and communications infrastructures as “natural monopolies.” Details at  National debt increased in tandem with foreign oil addiction, buying foreign oil and oil wars.
Madison, Federalist #63: “so there are particular moments in public affairs when the people, stimulated by some irregular passion, or some illicit advantage, or misled by the artful misrepresentations of interested men, may call for measures which they themselves will afterwards be the most ready to lament and condemn.”

Our mortgaging our children’s future labor for $95,000 today is an example.

Thomas Jefferson summarized our duty to usufruct in a Letter to James Madison, Sept 6, 1789, the Earth Belongs to the Living:

“Then no man can by _natural right_ oblige the lands he occupied, or the persons who succeed him in that occupation, to the paiment of debts contracted by him. For if he could, he might during his own life, eat up the usufruct of the lands for several generations to come, and then the lands would belong to the dead, and not to the living, which would be reverse of our principle.”

“…nor the nation itself can validly contract more debt, than they may pay within their own age, or within the term of 19. years?”

Thomas Jefferson (Tayor Letter, May 28, 1816): “the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”
