There have been several threads on here about a possible revolution, threads about how one might start and what the effects would be if one were to
take place. I think I may have just come up with a possible idea on how to fight one. The current national debt sits at approximately 13.7 trillion
and the ceiling on the debt the government can currently rack up is at 14.2 trillion. According to the following article, congress will be forced to
vote on raising the debt ceiling around April or May of 2011.
My thought is, “Is there any way we could stop them from raising the limit?” If we could they would be forced to change the way they operate the
entire government. They would be forced to cut pork spending. There would be no more borrowing so there would be no more QE. If the government were
forced to change the way it did business maybe there would be an opportunity to fix it.
I am not sure if the people are capable of directly stopping a bill from being passed, but if not we have about 6 months to stage one hell of a
protest. Of any reason people have had to be angry and to protest, adding more weight to an already unbearable burden that we and our children are
going to be left to deal with seems like a pretty good one to me.
What do you guys think, can we stop them from raising the debt ceiling?
