Canada would be happy to have you.

You could always live here for our 4 month summer when the Igloos melt and the Polar Bears migrate up south.

Are you seriously asking me something?
Not at all, obviously after it was asked verbatim.

Way to avoid the question...

First of all, personal question. Secondly, was it not obvious the way I framed the question what I would do?

Yes I got that, but a personal/individual crisis is different from a nation's crisis (where not everybody in that nation is actually in a crisis). You criticized INDY500 for his tea party ideas by stating that those ideas end up being costly in the long run.

There might be moments when this happens, and like so many tea party ideas your lack of foresight would cost us.
Costly to whom? Don't you think that some new thought into fiscal policy is important since the instability between democrats and republicans in this topic is already going beyond crazy?

Dftt I'm not sure you understood my line of questioning. Let's say the national government has been completely fiscally responsible and then find ourselves in a war combined with another global economic meltdown, do we really want it to be unconstitutional to break budget in case of emergency?

You know what else seems like common sense? Paying for what you've already spent.

We all went out to dinner in the last 10 years. Some of us ordered salad. Some of us order the lobster and a bottle of Dom. Now that the waiter brought the check, some people are saying that we ALL ate dinner, so we should divide the check evenly.

Bullshit.

Of course we don't want it to be unconstitutional if it goes to that extreme. The nature of the debate centers on the issue of divided government and opposition between both parties; they will never make it to a compromise in situations like this because that's how the system was made, inefficient and corrupt.

Raising the debt ceiling is imperative...

Financial consequences, political games.

Raising the debt ceiling is NOT the end of the world. It is, if we don't.
