The stock market has plunged to its lowest point in decades, unemployment is up, and home foreclosures are sweeping the country. Still, Americans think it can get even worse – a lot worse. Fully 61 percent of Americans think it is possible the United States government could literally go bankrupt. That’s according to a new Fox News poll released Thursday.
A 63 percent majority of Americans believe Obama’s priorities and policies are more likely to “significantly help the country,” while 25 percent believe they are more likely to “seriously harm the country.” Democrats nearly unanimously (90 percent) believe Obama’s policies will help, as do 61 percent of independents and 32 percent of Republicans. A 54 percent majority of Republicans think Obama’s policies will seriously harm the country.
Americans think positive results of President Obama’s policies are most likely to be evident in the form of new jobs, followed by positive developments in the housing and stock markets. Over two-thirds (70 percent) of Americans think it is at least somewhat likely that the economic stimulus and spending bill recently passed by Congress will “create new jobs.” A 58 percent majority thinks the bill will “stabilize the housing market,” and half (50 percent) of Americans think it will “reverse the stock market decline.”
United States Congressional Record - March 17, 1993 - Vol. #33, page H-1303 - Speaker- Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House:
"Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11. Members of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any Bankrupt entity in world history, the U.S. Government. We are setting forth hopefully, a blueprint for our future. There are some who say it is a coroner's report that will lead to our demise.
It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent. HJR 192, 73rd Congress in session June 5, 1933 - Joint Resolution to Suspend the Gold Standard and Abrogate the Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and Departments, and is further evidence that the United States Federal Government exists today in name only.
The receivers of the United States Bankruptcy are the International Bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund. "
