    The world isn't even close to ditching our currency, we still have a very stable economy despite the crash in 2008 and the dollar is still wry strong and stable around the world. Unless there is a revolutionary new economic system that the antarticans are developing in secret I don't see an alternative currency that is poised to become the standard... do you?

    No............electronic currency will be the new reserve currency.........not sure what it will be called...................

    We will see what the Globalist will go for after we finish screwing ourselves over...........................

    Nothing lasts forever.......and History always repeats itself.

    6 countries... 6 empires ago we needed to send messages via telegraph or carrier pigeon... Our wold has grown leaps and bounds since then... If anything the next/last evolution will be a one world currency arising from the likes of Bitcoin... We aren't even close to anybody considering that as a serious idea or threat... There may be a time when we all "color up" if I can use a poker term, however we won't see it in our lifetimes and who knows what kind of an evolved world it will be when that time comes.

    The end result is always the same when the Global powers recede, and others take over the world production........

    Our currency is propped by oil.............and others are challenging that now............will not happen over night but it will eventually bite us in the ass.

    Either way we should not continue to spend beyond our means.........It is fiscal Stupidity.

    What is the point you are asking from the paper..........the currency manipulation that deflates currency to increase export.........................

    Doesn't matter...............continuing to print paper on top of paper on top of paper will eventually have consequences.................

    Govt's should want the people to have a strong currency..............not deflate it...............how does that help the people.

    Our gov't should pay out what it brings in..............Fiscal responsibility..........

    If it doesn't matter then why not just grad 18 Trillion and flood the united states with money and rebuild the entire infrastructure.................Hell just give every American money..................that's not gonna happen.............the reason we are not Greece is because we hold the reserve currency of the world..................and gives us the power to borrow well beyond our REAL economic means.

    I was hoping that after reading them you'd elevate the quality (maturity and rigor) of your remarks wherefter I'd actively engage you in a discussion on the topic.

    Name calling and reflexive opposition are the refuge of the weak minded. It is one thing to repeat the words of others. It is quite another to analyze them and develop a deeper understanding of the subject matter which can then be put into one's own words.

    Neither party gives a dam about the national debt or will ever do anything about it as the last 100 plus years and 19 plus trillion dollars have proven. So just kick back and enjoy life till the house of cards comes tumbling down.
