Have there been any reports state-side about how long this can go on for before society starts to show the strain? I ain't suggesting you're all gonna go feral, but I can see low-wealth areas who rely on government services are gonna start getting desperate.

Oh, no incumbent is getting reelected, I can all but guarantee that shit now.

...is what I'd say if people weren't too stupid to research what their "representative" has done before checking boxes on the ballot (if they don't just vote a straight ticket for one party or the other).

Everything would break, and nothing would be fun.

That being said, raising the debt ceiling would also be pushing off the inevitable. It's pretty weird in that way. I'd sit and type out the possibilities I've considered the past few weeks, but I'd be typing out a wall of text with nothing but rambling. :p

I'm kind of hoping it happens. Everything is broken as it is. Ruining our credit would force us to stop borrowing from ourselves and foreign nations and fix our shit. The whole system is fucked up. Hopefully it will end the fed and we can install a national bank where we aren't borrowing money from ourselves and having to pay it back with interest. Stupidest idea ever.
