How dare you ask a logical question in an emotional argument. bottom line is this, IT’S ALL PART OF THE BIG LIE, and sadly a whole lot of people now believe this falsehood, we could DEFAULT TOMORROW if we wanted. In Fact I believe that We The People could also Grant to Ourselves Complete Sovereign Immunity from All Civil Liability for All Public Debts and Contracts through the initiative process in ANY STATE that allows initiatives, especially since it can be demonstrated using simple Third Grade Math to be IMPOSSIBLE MATHEMATICALLY to Honor these Promises, which makes it FRAUD on it’s Face. Thereby leaving the mess to The People that created it to fix it on their own with their money not ours.
Great point! What you are saying is that the US is insolvent which means it does not have enough money to pay its debts and cannot reasonably assume that it will anytime soon.
It is illegal, not to mention immoral, to continue to incur new debts in a state of insolvency. If you or I did it on the scale that our government is doing it we would go to jail.
On the other hand there is a legal doctrine known as “constructive notice” which means even though you have not had legal notice you have received practical notice. You haven’t been told, but you know through simple observation and calculation, that the US is not good for it. In that case tuff shiite to the ones who keep fueling the fire and to those that are living in reliance on the promised welfare checks.
