I was revieing the definition of treason

1. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) violation or betrayal of the allegiance that a person owes his sovereign or his country, esp by attempting to overthrow the government; high treason2. any treachery or betrayalIf the US defaults, they will be assisting the emenies of the United States, it will help them. Also several representative are set to benefit if the US defaults. Don't these actions fit the definition of treason?

the question is who will benefit from US default will china, brazil, india, and russia end the dollar role was the worlds reserve currency? what will happen to the value of the dollar internationally? What will happen to the nation's crediability? Who will be willing to partner with us or trust us? Do you trust people who can't meet their oblogations?

Because of spending cuts will we be less secure domestic?

Again I ask who benefits from a default?

Who benefits from a default? All the sharks waiting to snap up resources at bargain-basement prices. Timber in wilderness areas. Natural gas locked in layers of rock, and inconveniently located near the water table. Coal deposits under those pesky Mountains Majesty. We'll be selling it off like irregulars at an outlet store. And the biggest bargain of all: Millions of desperate people who need a job and will now work for wages that undercut foreign slave labor, under conditions that would make working at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory look like a vacation. And hey! It will kinda be like a family vacation, anyway, because the kids will be there, too!

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
