If the United States does not raise the debt ceiling by August 2nd, the country will officially be in default, potentially triggering another more serious round of financial troubles across the globe.
Do you wish to see the default happen in the hopes that global socioeconomic and political change may finally happen?

I finished the poll and read the fine print, thankfully.
Someone here on ATS is going to be quite happy to see this poll...
The conservatives/Republicans are focused exclusive on spending cuts as a condition for raising the debt ceiling.
The liberals/Democrats are focused primarily on increased revenue/taxes as a condition for raising the debt ceiling.
Financial analysts are indicating the best long-term solution is a combination of spending cuts and increased taxes.
It has been proposed that all parties involved, Republicans, Democrats, and the President are playing a political game with the issue, and imperiling the future of the nation and the global economy for short-term political gain.
What is your opinion of that statement?
Of the parties involved in this issue, which do you believe are the most corrupt?
