    According to mathematical figures and logic.....2013 is going to be a VERY bad year.....I don't understand why it's incomphrensible to many that if you keep spending-money runs out......it's like a 30 rd mag-you can't fire 300 bullets out of it without putting more bullets in...

    They're using fake bullets. ;) like in a video game. Made out of thin air.

    If they had to use "real" bullets, that are actually worth something, it would stop sooner.

    Which is why we shouldn't be using anything but gold and silver as money. Like the constitution says. As it should be.

    ALL fiat currencies die. Ours is dying.

    I believe deeply in what this country was meant to be, and came very close to being for a very long time. But painfully I must admit that we are done for. This country - in its current form - is going to fail. It's going to collapse. If nothing else it almost a mathematical certainty that an economic collapse is staring us in the face. And with the that the rest would quickly follow.

    Could we come out the other side, better than ever? Sure. But it's not going to stop us going through it. And it's going to make Civil War I look like a fist fight at a family reunion. I fear we do not have the depth of moral character, or sense of common ground, as a whole, to do the right things come what may.

    That's the point. We have borrowed ourselves way, WAAAY beyond that. You could raise taxes to 100%. Take everything. And not fix the problem. 16 trillion dollars (and climbing every moment) is THAT big a number.

    And not only is there NO chance politicians will change the way they spend money, the election was the referendum that 50 million brain-dead zombies wouldn't support them if this miraculous change were even possible.

    Only way out is to devalue our dollar where it is worthless. Think Germany 1930.

    Democracies always self-destruct when the non-productive majority realizes that it can vote itself handouts from the productive minority by electing the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury. To maintain their power, these candidates must adopt an ever-increasing tax and spend policy to satisfy the ever-increasing desires of the majority. So as taxes increase, incentive to produce decreases, causing many of the once productive to drop out and join the non-productive. When there are no longer enough producers to fund the legitimate functions of government and the socialist programs, the democracy will collapse.
