Anyone who is concerned about their own safety and security MUST take into consideration their neighbors safety and security as well, or else they have missed a HUGE area of vulnerability.

You should learn about risk assessments and how they work before you go spouting emotional reflexes.

Its not my fault your opinion is flawed though.

Just saying, your opinion is flawed in the same way that someone may have the opinion that 2+3 = 6.

As someone who does risk assessments for a living, I'm merely pointing out some basic facts of the industry.

Not sure why you are so emotionally reflexive about this...

The reason I feel this way is because every time I turn around it seems that the PTB are doing something to devalue the dollar,I simply think we should look out for our own interest first,that's how I feel about it,I respect your opinion,and you should respect mine..

I think we are in violent agreement on that, but given my work in risk assessment, i know that you can't look out for your own interests and ignore those of your neighbors at the same time.... It just isn't possible. If your neighbor gets sick.... You are going to get sick, so self interest == concern for neighbors. Not out of altruism, but out of self interest.

Yep... This is why concern for others == concern for self.

Sometimes the best interests of the individual are the same as the best interests of the community. America cannot have a successful and competitive economy in the future if all of its overseas markets collapse in the present. That's what happened in the Great Depression; the powers of Europe and America competitively devalued their currencies instead of seeking a community-of-nation based solution, and it ruined the world of trade. America is now so dependent on foreign investments and trade that it cannot afford to repeat the mistakes of the previous depression. If that means America bites the bullet now to avoid biting a cannonball later, then so be it.
