'It's Going to End Very Badly'

Republican Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul tells Newsmax he will vote against any attempt to raise the debt ceiling and says a proposal to allow the president to raise the ceiling is “capitulating” in the debt debate.

The federal government, he adds, is already “destroying the value of the dollar.”

Paul says President Obama’s warning that seniors on Social Security could suffer if the debt ceiling is not raised by August 2 is merely a “scare tactic. I think what Social Security has on hand can last quite a while. They’re not going to stop sending the checks out. The cash is there to take care of a good many months.”

Paul discussed the possible fallout in next year’s elections if Republicans do agree to only modest spending cuts and perhaps even to a tax increase.

Let us hope that it can be solved without bloodshed. The treason that is being committed warrants the removal from office of those involved no matter their party affiliation, starting at the White House. The left has stirred the right into a frenzy through pushing Socialist reforms down their throats. The leaders on the left have called for violence to attain their goals. The stage is set; they had better pray to whatever they believe in that they don't get what they are asking for, because they will not survive it. If they were smart they would just pack up and leave while they can.

Mitch McConnell, leader of the Senate Republicans, has proposed giving President Barack Obama the power to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling because the consequences of failing to raise it are too great.
Asked if that constitutes capitulating or is a good idea, Paul responds: “We are capitulating. I think it’s terrible. It should be Congress’ responsibility” and Congress should not give “this authority to the president to raise the debt limit.
“So far everybody I’ve talked to has been annoyed by it, mostly the conservatives. I don’t think it’s going to work. I do think, however, that somehow or other they will raise the debt limit by making some promises that people will fall into the trap of believing.”

You can see how this ends, congress will shirk their duty and kick the can down the road until the administration declares it a 'crisis' and then some sort of measure will be ramrodded through and everybody will be pointing fingers afterwards at the other side and crying about how there wasn't enough time to look everything over.

Unfortunately Momo you are probably correct.

I'm not a big RP fan, but I have to agree with his statement that "It's going to end very badly."

As they push Americans further and further into a corner it becomes more and more likely, and yes, it will end very badly for all involved on both sides.

Once people have had a taste of freedom, it's harder to take it away. (King George found that out in the late 1700's...)

Obama and the other Progressive Socialists who want less freedom, and more big government found out in 2010 that the populace was not happy, and if we continue to be active, and vocal, will be sending them packing in 2012.

Those still left in power, will have few supporters, and then the country can be put back on track, with more liberty, and freedom, and smaller, most cost effective federal government.

Only if they bow to the will of their rightful masters "We the People" and throw off the influence and corruption that corporate payoffs bring.
