All of this will be moot once the Nation collapses from bankruptcy. Then, it will be every man for himself. It will become a dog eat dog world. Force and coercion will be the law of the land whether it's by individuals or a government. I read history and can clearly make out where we are headed. SWe have borrowed more money than we can ever pay back. The transition to a barter economy will not be without its bumps and bruises for those affected. Meaning most of us. Metal coinage will be the only real money to have value. Our paper money you might as well use for tolietries. We may not even hang together as 1 country. I see nothing but misery and death in the coming years till we return before the time of the Revolution.
