You are only thinking of your own situation

Think pensions, social security, welfare, etc. not to mention the governments likely heavy handed response. Some of us would likly take bullets before it was over. Also commerce would temporarily, maybe for years grind to a halt. Think credit cards. This would be far from painless but is the only way I see. This would take down the worlds economy for a period of time.
