By David Galland in Casey's Daily Dispatch:
The fact is that [America's] leadership is a bunch of spineless opportunists with no more important items on their personal agendas than getting elected. They are spending this country into ruin. And they are doing it on our watch.
Paradoxically, while Americans have rolled over and wet themselves like scared dogs, as Doug Casey so colorfully puts it, the nation’s salvation may have to come from the very same people we in the U.S. most enjoy denigrating: the Chinese and the Arabs.
And, adding paradox to paradox, they may save us by first bringing us to our knees – by backing away from our Treasury auctions and, in time, maybe even backing their own currencies with something more tangible than crossed fingers. Those actions would cut off the life blood of the U.S. bureaucrats: the on-demand fiat money that is the source of U.S. political power.
