I agree. we should erase our

I agree. we should erase our obligations to other countries, sadly. There is no other way to get rid of this debt. It's true we'll look bad in the eyes of the world but who cares? China and others made the mistake of lending to us. This country is run by legalized criminals, and the people here are addicted to consumerism and handouts and big government. That's a recipe for disaster, and they should've seen it coming. Hopefully, they'll refuse to lend to us again, and that'll force us to live within our means and pay as we go. I've never taken out a single loan in my life, since, after all, the borrower is indeed slave to the lender.
