I dont think we will have to worry about money, mortgages or greedy bank owners. Unfortunately and with much regret I sense another huge war coming and sadly nukes will be used and millions will die. It was always said that WW3 would start over the Middle East cause of the oil and I fear this will happen now. People are so trigger happy and have forgotten the fears of living in the Cold War when we grew up fearing we would be all wiped out any day and that very nearly happened on more than one occasion. Once by politics and fear (Cuba) and once by accident in 1984 and 1987 I think it was when miscommunications between generals had people in a hissy fissy and the nuclear button was almost pressed.
I work with 20 year olds who have no idea what it is like to wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night and fear the nukes coming at you. All they know are X Box games etc. I really do feel a few hard hitting documentaries such as Threads and The Day After will be of benefit and bring people to their senses.
FACT: NOONE will win the next world war which is now brewing. We will all be dead and the few survivors will wish they were dead in a post nuclear war world.

Collapse of the American economy is not a surprise as a lot of taxpayers money is used for wasteful military "black projects". Example is the loss of the HTV 2 Falcon hypersonic drones as well as partaking in the policing of the world and not to mention the numerous wars it undertook. America is about to embark in another with Iran. Nukes should never be used but then if America is losing in a conventional war..with American pride in question...who knows. Before WW2 Britain was still a powerful nation but lost everything fighting in Europe and Asia. We need a strong and powerful America so you Americans should vote for a President who is brave enough to not go to war. Time to take a break from getting involved in other people's problem. Russia and China realise that so why can't you Americans do likewise.
