There's no reason why I should be responsible for anyone else's debt especially when I'm responsible enough to not have bad debt.

Funny, you think you won't do the same in Switzerland? Switzerland is home to very large financial interests, these interests pretty much control the country...guess who bails them out when they over leverage themselves? Oh yes, the Swiss.

You can't escape the vampire squid by moving to Europe, its teeth are even sharper there.

The last part is absolutely correct as anyone who has studied long term history would understand but the quantitative easing is for buying down interest rates.

Sure, that pretty much applies to any nation. Sure, any nation going belly up will (understandably) abuse its power as a last resort to save itself.

I'm just using Switzerland as an example.. I honestly have no idea at the moment which country's gonna implode next; it's anyone's guess.

But when that happens, whether to the US or wherever you're choosing to live, it's Fight or Flight time.. not time to sit there and obediently hand over your $$$.

Wow. Another economic collapse blog powerhouse of economic research. How could one possibly read it without filling ones depends to overflowing, forgetting where we put our dentures and being too consterflabulated to even remember to watch Matlock?
