If this bill passes, then some day, maybe, the courts will do something. But I won’t hold my breath.

The problem here is much bigger than socialized medicine. A year ago congress was bailing out the banking industry to the tune of $1 trillion. Then it was bailing out the auto industry. This week it’s socialized medicine. Next week it’ll be cap and tax. This an addiction to power and spending fueled by ever increasing debt. The demand isn’t going to abate until there is simply no more money to be spent.

Demand based solutions aren’t going to work. No junkie comes clean unless he/she has to. We need to start looking at supply side solutions. We need to cut the supply of money. The irony here is that conservatives are enabling the socialism.

Own savings bonds? T-bills? GNMAs? Are they the underlying investment in your money market account or 401(k)? If the answer is yes, then you’re subsidizing this just as surely as if you had scratched a check.

But what about the national debt? The ability to fund all this is tied to the ability to borrow. What if conservatives simply pushed for a polcy of repudiating the national debt, or more specifically that portion entered into since January 2009?

I've been an advocate of the Tea Party movement adopting such a platform.

On Notice: When we win, we will REPUDIATE ALL US DEBT incurred since Jan 2009.

The interest on the 10 yr bond would go to 10% overnight...and 12-20% on the 30yr. Even then there would be far to few takers.

Hey world! You're on notice. The PEOPLE of the United States of America WILL NOT HONOR the national debt. We can't, we won't afford it.

Civil War is the answer at this point but I’m afraid we wimp out as always and submit to Marxism
