Death of the American Dream

Well, I think we are going to do it. We paid off our mortgage quite awhile ago, but it turns out the "American Dream" of owning your own home, is a lie that we are fed. You never really own your home. Even if you pay off your mortgage, you still owe the government taxes every year that, at least in our case, amount to half of what we were paying in mortgage payments. Why bother? We aren't going to be able to afford that once we retire, so we won't be living here that long, may as well get a loan on the house, and pay off all the other bills we have.
