  • I understand our country is teetering on the edge of a fiscal cliff. If something is not done, we will plunge into financial oblivion.
    Not to fear, I have the solution. President Obama simply declares the U.S. bankrupt. I realize the Constitution does not provide for such action, but Obama ignores that document anyway.
    Under bankruptcy, Obama would reorganize the country. He would tear up the Constitution, abolish Congress (we don't need those clowns anyway, and we'd save money). We could pay off our creditors by giving away a few of our red states. China could get Texas, they are threatening to secede anyway. Russia is a natural for Alaska.
    Obama would assume the title of King Potentate, or simply MBW (Miscellaneous Big Wheel) and build his palace in Chicago, complete with throne room, basketball court and golf course.
    No more endless political campaigns — money saved. And all those D.C. attorneys would need to get real jobs — more dollars saved. Our troops would be called home to protect Obama — more money saved.
    Liberals would dance in the streets and nobody cares about the Republicans anyway. — C. Beck, Medford
