That's one way.
The other option is a REALLY small federal government, getting back to the enumerated responsibilities.
Not at this point.. Our taxes don't even cover the interest on the debt we already owe... We already went over the line.. This doesn't count SS, and
the military or any other spending.. Republicans want to not raise the ceiling so they want to crash it now. Dems want to raise the ceiling so they
want to slowly/quickly debase the currency..
Either way, unless we "Find" a bunch of precious goods, and import nothing we are screwed.
But I agree we need to make this government as small as possible and leave the Laws to the states.
