There is a reason Ron is sticking to monetary policy guys, he hit the ball out of the park turning that Regan question towards finance.

I don't think you'll be able to pay with an artifact that's locked up under glass in museums.

That would be nice.. I'll put one away, keep it nice and crisp. Maybe it will be worth more as an antique.

2040?? Our government is bankrupt. 100% of our income taxes go to pay interest. The only way the government can fund ANYTHING is to borrow or print. The time you speak of is NOW,WE NEED SOME FUCKING SANITY IN OUR MONETARY SYSTEM NNNNOOOOOWWWWW!

If you watch the videos, that's what they are saying. One of the videos I saw on it had David Walker saying that by 2040, Social Security, Medicare and the interest on those two programs alone would amount to over 90% of our GDP. NOT tax revenues, GDP.

It needs to be taken care of now, but it's not until you calculate the compounding interest going forward to 2040 to realize how important it is to take care of it now.
