Here is another article on the federal debt, “The Story Nobody Is Reporting On,” from The Market Ticker blog. In it the highlight another side effect of the National Debt, the reduction in purchasing power of about 7.7% which is the portion of the GDP that the additional debt incurred by the government last year…

Let me be clear: On the arithmetic if we do not stop this now within the next 4-5 years — that is, within the next Presidential term — our government will collapse, our economy will collapse, our health care system will collapse and both the stock and housing markets will collapse. This is not politics, it’s arithmetic. And the worst part of it is that I am utterly certain that the “references” count, along with the “views” count on this article will both be a fraction of the politically-oriented articles I’ve recently posted. That the real end of our way of life in America, a threat that is obvious, mathematically certain, not very far in the future and yet avoidable if we act now fails to garner any sort of serious attention is the real outrage folks.
So, I ask again, what are you doing to prepare for such a collapse?
It is not an empty question. I am really curious you you are preparing for such an eventuality as I am just getting started to prepare for this.
