    stopping them politically?

    While I'd love to see the former, it will never happen. The Republicans would go ape-shit and immediately move to impeach Obama. Fox News would be ecstatic. We would truly have civil war, and the government would never re-open. Obama would never do it. Hell, he didn't even investigate the worst of the banksters. He won't use the 14th amendment, or mint a coin, "because that might cause endless legal challenges".

    None of that prevents Obama from saying, "This is sedition, and we won't allow our country and its government to be destroyed".

      They will move to impeach Obama anyway.  That's a NEED on their part so we should move first.  We already have Civil War.  There just haven't been many shots fired from guns but make no mistake...it's begun.  They think this is a fight for God's love and they aren't about to give in.  FOX is owned by Murdoch and he only cares about money.  There has been big money in cultivating them but when that changes, as a default will cause, Murdoch will begin slanting stories away from them.  I agree that Obama won't use the 14th or mint a coin but sedition is a crime.  Obama either calls it so and we have a trial for what's Constitutionally legal, concerning debt, or we continue to be extorted.  I think that's Obama's line.
