New U.S. Motto

Over at the Freakonomics blog, there was a contest to come up with a new 6 word motto for the U.S.

The finalists:

1. Consumption’s the Cure That Ails Us.
2. We Will Get It Right, Eventually.
3. We Are Too Big to Fail.
4. The Streets Are Paved With CASH4GOLD.COM.
5. Learn to Live Within Your Means.
6. Wow, Can You Believe This Place?

The winner in a landslide: We Are Too Big to Fail.

If only that were true! A truer motto would be “Who’s Going to Bail US Out?”
