We have this tendency to blame everything on the current administration but as Obama stated in his acceptance speach it may not happen in the next 4 years. While we are cutting how about we stop some of the spending to support our congressional leaders for their entire lives and their families entire lives. If the Senate and Congress would treat our money the same and they treat their own then we could get somewhere. And while we are going there how about we start random drug and alcohol testing with the Senate and Congress. I’m not so sure I care so much for their lawmaking after a 3 martini lunch.

BTW, this is exactly what Ron Paul, Texas Senator and former presidential candidate was trying to tell us all for years

the best cure to debt addiction is 100% commodity currency standard and requirement for 100% bank reserves

money should be created through savings not outof thin air in this giant debt Ponzi scheme of fractional reserve banking

I believe that appointing Paul Volcker as Fed chairman would be a great sign that the Obama administration takes fiscal and monetary responsibility seriously, and would send a clearcut signal to Congress and the markets.

I am a little bit worried about the puppet President of the irresponsible community. The good thing of the promise should be process into reality. The role as “world policeman”, “the superpower country”, such as contribution in Iraq is better in another shape. Thanks to the America, because it is care to another country in the world. Anything is possible there.
God bless America

Probably the best place to start would be cutting military spending, quickly withdrawing from all bases around the world. All capitalization requirements for banks should be lifted so that the financial industry cannot be dominated by a few corrupt behemoths, but rather would be a free market of worker-run credit unions and mutual banks. This would have the additional advantage of increasing class mobility and breaking the power of the plutocratic caste. Returning to a commodity-based currency would be a good first step, although ultimately it is important that people be able to freely decide on their own currency, in which case any that is backed by labor may be seen as valid. Naturally, all corporations whose position in the market is due to state intervention (which is equivalent to all major corporations today, given the role played by IP laws, state control over credit, leasing privileges, tariffs, corporate welfare, and the whole lot) should be taken over by their workers, such that they receive the full value of their labor.
Steps such as these, I believe, would be a good start in dealing with the financial crisis. Finally, establishing the universal right of democratic self-government and thus secession would trim much of the fat off the U.S. budget, since throughout history bloated and overextended empires have tended to do badly. So we need to work on making sure government only exists by the consent of the governed, first and foremost.
