    This gives me hope but unfortunately I fear there too many statists. We have to make tough decisions that are real and will affect everyone. We continue to dump trillions in a burden on our kids so we an have our cake and it is unacceptable...

    Not to hijack the thread already, but I never understood the "dumping the burden on our kids" statement. When the government eventually defaults or raises the tax rate too high, the people will overthrow the government, and our creditors will be left with their hands out. I don't feel personally responsible for the debts of my government. Am I missing something?

    I might have argued against this as not a reality in the past.

    Now I can't say it is not a viable argument.

    That's the outcome desired by Osama and Obama - collapse of The Republic.

    Yes you are. When we fail to step up about the back breaking debt of this country then shame on us. You let your kids down because it has a direct effect on them.

    I'm not dismissing my desire for us to get our debt under control. What I am asking is if we don't correct the issues, and we default, and the government becomes obsolete (or whatever the scenario is) then what? We won't be passing any debt onto our kids as far as I can tell.

    Default is a misleading word because that doesn't happen unless the President so chooses.

    total and complete collapse of the economic situation that leads to depression and anarchy that makes the 30's look like a picnic with regionalized militia fighting each other and some nut getting his finger on some nukes for enough pieces of gold

    argentina isn't the world's currency or the largest economy in the world. they are a pimple our our arse so trying to compare what happened there to how a US bankruptcy would impact the world is a joke. look how the greek threat to upset the EU banking system threw world economies into turmoil. if us goes bankrupt, situation would be 1000 times worst but us will print moeny and devalue before it goes bk so inflation would result in $100 loafs of bread and $200 a gallon gasoline
