With 270 million-odd residents, this would add an instant 270 trillion dollars
to the global money supply, overnight.
The value of the dollar would plummet, and I'd have just been paid in worthless scrip, that is now about like the Italian Lira or something.
Besides the which, I figure gray areas would be tied up in court for years:
-what about illegal aliens, do they get a check?
-all the banks we'd have are accounts in are no longer owned by their previous owners, but the new owners.
- the check-clearing companies and dollar printin-presses are now owned by the party of the second part. Nothing to pay with.
- would this apply to private property, or only stuff owned by the Federal Govt? What about states? what about properties for which no title exists,
i.e. roads, rivers, songs, etc.?
- are the people for sale too, and now we're all slaves?
See, it'd be chaos, and a million instantly-devalued greenbacks are hardly adequate compensation.
Besides . . .
buy us out? . . . BUY US OUT!?!?!? . . . we'll buy YOU out, bub !
not the other way around!!!!!
