    This is just the beginning of our crash. We were dumb enough to elect Obama, and now we must deal with the consequences. The country will be in ruins, by the end of his second term. Civil war might even break out. Seriously...............

    I agree! This is just the beginning of our crash. We were dumb enough to elect the Tea Party to a minority of the majority party seats, and now we must deal with the consequences. The country will be in ruins, by the end of their second term. Civil war might even break out. Seriously...............

    the U.S. shouldn't ... there are ways to prevent that from happening if congress does or does not pass something.
    If Congress doesn't pass anything, the government will have to choose what and what not to pay... imo the debt interest is the #1 priority, then SS, etc. etc. down a specific priority list with some programs recieving bare minimums in funds to at least hold out till a solution passes.

    The Tea Party are the only ones that are close to being serious on the debt issue.

    This has nothing to do with electing Obama.... the crisis has been created by congress.

    Truthfully, I'm very proud of the Tea Party. I don't belong, but it has just flat kicked butt.
