All this Debt Limit Fear Mongering stuff really has gotten to be ridiculous. The State of Minnesota shut their Government down and guess what?...They're still here. They didn't disappear from the face of Earth in a gigantic ball of fire. In fact,they just got a deal done and are now re-opening their Government. So their shutdown was a good thing in the end. We should not raise the Debt Limit. Not raising it will force them to make big cuts immediately. They will have no choice. And lets face it,force is the only way you're going to get our Government to make real cuts. The Nation will not collapse and disappear from the face of Earth if the Debt Limit is not raised. That's all just Fear Mongering B.S. They do this kind of Fear Mongering right before their Wars and spending debacles like Stimulus Packages. Fear is their biggest weapon in getting what they want. The U.S. really will still be here after not raising the Debt Limit. Seriously,it's true. All it will do is force their hand in making real cuts. So don't let fear rule your life. Don't believe their hype. Don't raise the Debt Limit. The Sky really wont Fall.
