Did you really think the politicians would let the Country go into default. If that happen, they would loose their control over you. How else do you think they keep you in poverty. They will continue to bankrupt the Nation until every American becomes dependent on them for their existence.
There is only one way for Americans to end the National Debt and regain their freedom. You would have to abolish the Federal Government, the Federal Reserve, the IRS, the FBI, the BATF, the office of Homeland Security and the Supreme Court. Also, separate us from anything connected with the World bank, IMF and the UN. Reroute all taxes to State Governments and let them govern according to the Constitution. Change the laws of each state back to Biblical guidelines. Eliminate welfare from those who abuse the system or do not meet Biblical Guidelines. Require everyone to accept personal responsibility for their actions and bad decisions. Get rid of the ACLU and all similar Communist organizations. In other words, turn away from your Pagan God, the Federal Government and serve the True God of the Bible. Only then will you truly be free and independent and able to reap the fruits of your labor.
