    Almost a year later, and now the White House is refusing to rule out the possibility of minting one trillion dollar coins to pay off the debt. We also found out that we crossed the tipping point of 51% of the people realizing they can vote for obamaphones and other people's money.

    Looks like the plan will be to keep the gravy train running forever. Of course there comes a time when plans collide with reality.

    And that you may have to deal with, with smaller capacity magazines.

    Happy new year. :upeyes:

    I just ran back through the last couple of pages and realized that this whole thread was PHDC.

    I can say with 100% confidence that the death rate will increase if the handouts stop.

    I saw a t-shirt recently that had "Our forefathers would be shooting by now" printed on it. Seems pretty relevant.

    Dude, you not only have the best avatar on the forum but you have the best signature line too!

    How much do you predict the death rate will increase?

    Thanks. They say the best measure of a man's intelligence is how much he agrees with you...lol.

    Conservatively, I'd say that we'd lose at least 20% of the population from either violence or starvation.

    The sad thing is that this gives them a perfect reason to declare martial law and suspend habeas corpus and all the other good things that a tyrant would love to do, if any violence comes to pass by patriots looking to protect the country.

    I'm not speaking of "patriots" being violent.

    I envision the have nots attacking each other for the little they have.

    It's my belief that they won't start attacking "patriots" for a while as they know we'll fight back.

    The only violence I'll participate in is in defending me and mine.

    The problem is, once the SHTF, he can declare and suspend whatever he wants. Good luck against a few hundred million people or even just a few million...

    Plus take the proportion of armed forces that would tell him to go screw himself instead of attacking/policing their own...

    Seems like an epic fail on his part.

    And then, yes, take all the have nots and figure them into the mix. It would not be pretty but I doubt there is much he could do at that point. Nature would kinda take it's course and hopefully the good guys come out on top.

    Oh, you know the media and dems will ignore the violence by the welfare crowd and even lionize them by saying they are just out for justice by taking from those greedy bastards who have too much and won't share and it's their human right to survive while the first shot by a patriot protecting himself against the horde will be immediately broadcast all over the world as evidence of our violent tendencies and we'll all be cast as domestic terrorists.

    Tell me I'm wrong on that one.

    You guys are making a lot of good arguments for why "they" can't let the handouts stop.

    Is thee an alternative where we share the wealth? From each according to his ability (Publix) to each according to his need (No job)? I am seeing this as I read you guys.

    I say that they just keep on giving these guys currency equal to a working mans (or more) so that they can continue to buy their stuff and it does not matter if they print the money so long as they dole it out in a balanced way so that we all get to buy what stuff remains available equally.

    This would delay the riots until the store shelves are empty and then the working people who did not prepare would be right there with them.

    I don't think you're wrong but I didn't want to be seen as advocating violence...lol.
