    I'm still young enough that I don't have alot to lose in the way of life savings and I don't receive any kind of payments from the government. I have a pretty secure field of work and have plenty of guns and ammo.

    I get no money from the government.
    I have little in savings as I am trying to pay everything off, down to house and student loan only.

    Unless you work for the Government with Ten years seniority you might rethink your job security and buy more ammo.

  13. #6. The typical American voter will demand that their government save them. Their government will agree to, however, it will insist that the constitution be suspended so that it can "fairly" implement the harsh measures necessary to save them. The people will agree and the totalitarian America will finally achieve it's full measure of success.

    And American Idol will return for a 12th season. The people will be pleased.

    Guys, the U.S. government cannot go bankrupt. It can default, but it won't. Both of these are prevented by the power of the printing press.

    The U.S. government today can't pay its obligations without printing money. What you are hypothesizing about has already occurred.
     
  18. Who knows what could or will happen probably very little other than the government tightening the strangle hold on your finances and freedoms. We are already sliding down hill and very few people seem to notice and even fewer seem to care. Or maybe a Rhodesia economical melt down and sky high inflation (without blacks taking over or the killing of the white farmers) but I doubt that it will be ether as fast or as defined as that.

    The link in the link about German Weimar Republic inflation in 1923 was most interesting.

    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/commandingheights/shared/minitext/ess_germanhyperinflation.html

    The large corporations were unscathed.

    Years of strong inflation preceded hyperinflation.

    Young people spent and were not affected.

    Pensions and savings of a lifetime were wiped out never to recover.

    Leading economists before the hyperinflation declared “no need to worry, the money is sound”

    People invested in gold and “safe land” outside the cities.

    Hyperinflation lasted only a short time and then they reset the currency.
