I was just sitting here thinking what the world would be
like if suddenly you woke up one morning and all the banks
were padlocked and all ATM's were off-line.

And then I thought, would this be the start of the
march on DC ???

We already know the US has defaulted on their
debt to China, but what if they defaulted on their
debt to us ???

Just exactly what would you do ??

debit or credit card means
no fuel for ur tank.

Well I think that, considering this would effect EVERYONE, not just the average joe, but also the rich, and even the ultra rich....I'd probably just wait it out. There would be some fairly seriously influential people sorting it all out eventually. It's not as if the Ultra Rich can get any richer if the people they exploit have no money whatsoever....They want us to have just enough to feed them...but not enough to be a threat.

what would u buy the ticket with?
cards cannot be confirmed without
approval from a bank. And you may not
have that much cash on hand.

Maybe the fact that everyone starts using bitcions will be the reason that the banks close their doors.

I have spent my whole life learning independance from the system..
I am not hoping that the system will save me.

After I returned home from spending whatever cash I had at the grocery store, I'd take inventory of everything I've been collecting over the years. I'd prep an emergency water supply and work on barring the doors and windows from intruders.

Here is a list of stuff people may want to put together.

well I don't keep my savings in the bank.....just in case something like this or a CME happens...it's also my own personal protest against the bankster grip on the little person....

The upside would be that i probably wouldn't have to pay the credit card or morgage....yyeehhh......

Considering I don't have a bank account, I think I would be completely indifferent.

Although it would obviously be a sign of TS about to HTF so I'd probably pack my car up with my goodies and drive to the coast where some of my family lives. Better safe than sorry right?

Hmm.

Well speaking for my "class of citizenship"...

...The only money that I manage to keep in my pocket from mortgage payment to mortgage payment to... wow all of the sudden tripled mortgage payment...

...Stays in my wallet.

I stopped trusting the banks when they stopped deserving my trust.

I would simply laugh if they closed down. there would be an initial shock, but at least everyone would eventually realize...

...That banks don't really do anything for us that we couldn't do by ourselves if they were never around sucking money out of us since the moment we were pushed out of the womb.

I would go for a long hike, find a beautiful place to sit and watch the sunset (or sunrise) and seriously consider what was important to me, in my life.

Well, technically that would be the end of 1 form of slavery!!!

Once people can't pay bills, they'd get their azzes up and do something.
