"Allow a government to decline paying its debts and you overthrow all public morality — you unhinge all the principles that preserve the limits of free constitutions. Nothing can more affect national prosperity than a constant and systematic attention to extinguish the present debt and to avoid as much as possible the incurring of any new debt."
Alexander Hamilton
(1757-1804) American statesman, Secretary of the Treasury

 -- Mary - MI      
Not shooting the messenger, ABSOLUTELY ! ! !  With a debt god, such as the Federal Reserve established as the central bank, morals (private and a union thereof) have declined in all ways. The immoral patrons of the occupying statist theocracy that now infests this land have become unhinged from all principles that preserve the limits of free constitutions.
