With point 3, experts say fuel would go up if people boycotted it. if that happens then everything gets more expensive. I think fuel prices need to be tripled in the US anyway as well as taxes raised several hundred percent to bring the debt down.

Originally a legal term referring generally to the act of valuable property being taken into custody by an agent of the court and locked away for safekeeping, usually to prevent the property from being disposed of or abused before a dispute over its ownership can be resolved. But the term has been adapted by Congress in more recent years to describe a new fiscal policy procedure originally provided for in the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Deficit Reduction Act of 1985.

If Ron Paul voted "no". I'm voting for Ron Paul 2012.
Texas congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul denounced the latest debt ceiling deal and the country’s overall fiscal policy during a campaign stop in Iowa City today.
Paul was one of 66 Republicans who voted against the plan Monday, which would raise the debt ceiling by up to $2.4 trillion and cut spending by $917 billion.
