The government of the United States of America is the federal government of the constitutional republic of fifty states that constitute the United States, as well as one capitol district, and several other territories. The federal government is composed of three distinct branches: legislative, executive and judicial, which powers are vested by the U.S. Constitution in the Congress, the President, and the federal courts, including the Supreme Court, respectively; the powers and duties of these branches are further defined by acts of Congress, including the creation of executive departments and courts inferior to the Supreme Court. - Source: Wikipedia

President Obama is saddling future generations with debt they will not be able to afford. He will turn the IRS into debt collectors for the Chinese government while courageous House and Senate Republicans stand athwart the progressive tidal wave saying, "Stop!"
Democratic Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe has no more connection to the state of Virginia than my two sisters, who have lived in Texas and Wisconsin for the past 40-plus years. Perhaps that is why Mr. McAuliffe needs a history lesson ("McAuliffe blasts flying of Confederate flag; issue is politically tricky," Web, Oct. 2).
President Obama wants everyone to know that unless he gets authority to borrow a few extra trillion dollars by Oct. 17, the sky will fall. The consequences for everyone will be "dramatically worse" than a government shutdown. If you think the National Park Service rangers are tough, so the message goes, wait until the Chinese bankers arrive. The president says "every economist" agrees that failure to extend the debt ceiling -- the credit limit -- would mean a default of the United States government, and that would trigger collapse, calamity, catastrophe and maybe even inconvenience. We urge the president to take an aspirin and lie down until he feels better.
Those in the business of planning ahead say there's not much planning Americans can do over the next 10 days for the fallout if Washington's warring factions can't come together and avoid the first federal financial default in the nation's history.
