What happens when everyone outside Washington finally sees what's coming, and stops buying Treasuries (i.e. Federal debt)? Do members of Congress wean themselves off the credit sow, or do they finally Do The Big One and just print whatever money they want (thus completely screwing the economy).
Then again, this is the same Congress that won't let America develop (explore, drill, mine, etc.) her own energy, forcing imports via a dollar Washington is making worthless. Brilliant.
Maye those radical threads about bullets-as-currency aren't so far-fetched...
