    The lights will not go out, that’s just fear mongering. Our government has been shut down twenty times in recent history by both party’s. Congress has the power of the purse, that is their basic leverage and it was intended to be used. Our money is smoke and mirrors anyway, if they actually “shut of the lights” it would be political posturing.

    “The question Americans should be asking is not whether to raise the debt ceiling, but rather why the Federal Government, which is authorized by the Constitution to create and issue interest-free money, instead borrows that money at interest from a privately owned central bank, thereby plunging future generations into debt slavery to that bank? THAT is the real question Americans should be asking!”
