    The federal government is a horrific burden on private enterprise. For Fiscal Year 2009, almost 1/2 of the money spent by the Obama administration will be borrowed. The FY 2009 deficit is 4 times larger than any other deficit budgeted by any other president.

    They won't.  It's like a giant game of musical chairs.  Each politician puts off making a decision hoping the problem will break on the following generation.  When that happens, the US will follow every other nation who has devalued their currency and defaulted on their loans.  Of course then, nobody would lend to us, which isn't a bad thing because we're like a chocoholic on a binge right now in a chocolate factory.  When the enormity of what's been put over on us finally reaches the consciousness of the mass, the result will be terrifying.  It's my belief that the excesses of the French Revolution won't hold a candle to what's coming.  Unlike most, I hope it happens soon because the longer the wait, the longer the fall.
