Trying to Bankrupt the USA

The publicly stated goal of prominent Republicans, including Jeb Bush, is to bankrupt the government of the USA and have corporations take over the functions currently handled by government. They seem to be succeeding with the help of the Tea Party crazies who don’t understand the consequences of what they are doing. This is not particularly good news for Americans, but it is for everyone else who have been living under the American thumb during the last century. Never have Alexis de Tocqueville’s words been more true: In a democracy, the people get the government they deserve.
