    Don't give a ****. The US is not as important as it's made to be in the media.

    Yes, it's mathematically IMPOSSIBLE for the US to NOT default on the debts... It's only a matter of time, and it doesn't matter how much paper gets thrown at it.

    This is the beginning of the end of the US dollar as world reserve currency. At the international level the discussions have been going on for some time as to the replacement for a world currency as the dollar gets inflated into irrelevance.

    The US is not worth preserving. There's no identity or values left in this country. So don't cry, whoever supersedes the USA will be better for the world.

    Everyone knows that not raising the debt ceiling on no way necessarily results in default - right?
    That, absent a hike in the debt ceiling, the only way we default is if The Obama decides to not pay our creditors - right?

    Damn them -all- to hell for steadfastly holding on to the inane idea that the US government should live within its means.

    El Cid Campeador, haha. You wish your future were communism, because then you'd have some workers benefits and compensations. No, your future is far worse than that. Your future is being a slave in this new corporate states of america. Haha.

    What a jackass. You think those are Communists? They're closer to you ideologically than Communists.

    I highly doubt the US will ever go down... most likely, if it ever gets too bad, there will be a fascist or Socialist movement to rise it back to power and it would become even more scary then it already is.

    Edit: the U.S. has too much influence already to go down. And Someone in america will take advantage of the desperate people and this influence.

    I oppose significantly increasing presidential power to prioritize government spending. The Constitution says that's Congress' job. It's called a budget. I say that without further Congressional guidance the treasury should pay its obligations, first come, first served. Bond holders, Social Security recipients, Medicare providers, active duty military all need to get in line.

    How did you come up with that particular order of payment?
    How is it legally/constitutionally/logically valid?

    A US economic/societal/governmental collapse will plunge the world into not just a depression, but an abyss, one that may very well result in a new Dark Age.
    The fastest way to reach -that- destination is for certain people to act like >$2.8T/yr isnt enough revenue and refuse to accept any notion to the contrary.
