Seriously? This is about the 'umpteenth' article recommending this strategy as a way to, "show 'em."
I am beginning to think people-on both sides- fail to recognize just how calamitous such a move would be. More debt only hurts our progeny. A collapse of the dollar hurts everyone, including those who don't vote for this kind of reckless government. Some Chi-com calling in the national treasury debt won't accept 'sorry I didn't ask for this," as an excuse. This is serious stuff folks and it calls for serious leadership, not gamesmanship. This is not a game. This won't be so easy when the takers who have no morality come looking for their 'fair-share' of what may be left.
