  •  this is all nonsense (0+ / 0-)

    The wealthiest 1% of the US population, all by itself, owns about $21 trillion in wealth.

    The entire US Federal budget is around $4 trillion, and the deficit is less than $2 trillion.

    The US is nowhere near going broke or bankrupt. The very idea is idiotically silly.

    Why can't you libertarian loonies just say out loud what you REALLY want---you think government is communistic and we shouldn't have one (other than for putting people in jail and maybe dropping bombs on people). Why keep play-acting all this silly crapola about "deficits omigod !!!!!! hyperinflation omigod !!!!"

    Ohhhh, because nobody agrees with you about what you REALLY want, and you can't get elected dogcatcher if you say it out loud . . . . .
