It's time for another ATS survey/poll, and in response to the popular demand, this one is about as timely as it gets, the U.S. "debt crisis."



Click Here to let us know your opinion on the eight questions.

Results will be posted next week.

Just a quick comment about the format of the poll, I almost answered the first question the opposite of what I really felt by accident because I didn't see the fine print under the question at first. So if you just read the question:



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.


You might answer quite differently than if you read the fine text under it:



Do you wish to see the default happen in the hopes that global socioeconomic and political change may finally happen?


So to those taking it, make sure you read the fine print before responding

Im not American so im not bothered either way.

Our national news tells us that raisng the debt celing will only delay the inevitable so good luck with that

Someone here on ATS is going to be quite happy to see this poll...

I don't want to do much more than wait and see to be honest.
I think this situation is being steered along so for me to try and
predict exactly what is going to happen would be naive of me.

One thing I can be certain of..
There will be PANIC.

(I sent you a private message a while ago SO and I really need a response ASAP. Would be much appreciated.)

Participated.. but Id have liked to see a few more questions because Im curious as to what ATSers feel on a few things. Id have loved to hear how many think what I do.. that this dem vs repub thing is a joke.. on us.

All I know is Im obviously along for the ride.. whatever comes. Yee-Haw!

I took the survey, but you need to ad a question that is something like, "Do you wish to see mass deaths of those who are not ubermenches, via instant social insurance benefits abolition, for the eventual strength and superiority of heir Fatherland? Sieg heil."
(sarcasm, of course.......)

Oooh good stuff, thanks.

However, I note the second row of options is as follows:

Very Satisfied Satisfied Neutral Unsatisfied Very Unsatisfied

Is this the way it should be ? All the others are "agree/disagree" . It was a little confusing.

Will look forward to contributing further in this thread but wanted to get that out there.

Nothing like a little bias to the poll with that image in the OP



I don't participate in biased polls that are geared to elict a certain response.

Bit skewed in its questioning.

But, meh...its catering towards a specific result moreso than a unbias survey..just my opinion.

"Should the government default so great things can happen, or should we keep everyone enslaved"...hmm..(paraphrasing question 1. changes need to happen, but not during a gun to the head moment)

3.
The conservatives/Republicans are focused exclusive on spending cuts as a condition for raising the debt ceiling.

4.
The liberals/Democrats are focused primarily on increased revenue/taxes as a condition for raising the debt ceiling.

5.
Financial analysts are indicating the best long-term solution is a combination of spending cuts and increased taxes.


6.
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?


I wonder what would be the poll results had questions 5 and 6 preceded 3 and 4?





7.
Of the parties involved in this issue, which do you believe are the most corrupt?




Washington is like a bad case of lice.
Every so often it gets out of control and they should all be removed.

You are prolly missing the last question, I did that, recheck your last question, I think it was the last question.

You misunderstand the nature of the global economy.

Probably, but a little political courage would go along way toward keeping it as painless as possible.
