Star for the attempt to make something out of this thread...
1: Do you understand that some of your bases are part of treaties and you have signed contracts that are valid for several years (even decades). What
would you do with those? What about South Korea and Taiwan and access to cheap oil ?
1.1: How would you avoid being assassinated or suffer a putsch ?
1.2: This would probably put you in prison or out of office, there is no way you could be president without being involved in the conspirators
2: War or at least heavy sanctions would be set on the US. No exports and certainly no credit for imports. Oil prices would skyrocket fallowed by
national discontent. All nations would move to gold, you would have to confiscate (nationalize) all national gold and silver resources and more.
4: No money to pay for it.
4.1: Due to the present structure this action would result in massive emigration of brains. Dooming the nation tto ages of darkness and reducing the
capacity of the only industries that are left services and technology.
5: No money to pay for it. Doctors and nurses are leaving the country on mass...
6: No money, deportations costs money and resources. No way to enforce effective border patrols due to lack of funds.
7: Consumption would drop, national production of tradable goods would suffer due to export "blockade". No incentive to work, cost of welfare would
9: No money. Due to the default no external credit to pay even for maintenance.
10: No chance of that, you would have been killed or the nation was in civil war, most probably some states had already seceded.
11: A goal for the next millennium after the ashes of your nation would be cleared out by the winds, if your nation hadn't ceased to exist by invasion
Bar being impossible a good dream proposal
