For all of those people who assume that the United States can continue to increase its debt and that there are no potential consequences, here is a video reminder that there most definitely are!
And while a move to ban the dollar is unlikely in Russia today, remember that Russia and China have already made moves to circumvent our currency (China and Russia: Strange bedfellows or a reddish-hued match made in heaven? - November 2010).
And there will come a point, unknown to us now, where our debt will reach a level that will become untenable to other nations and threaten our position as the worlds reserve currency!
And now on to the Watcher's Council!
For those who may be enjoying their first Watcher's Council experience, it is a group that consists of some of the top conservative bloggers from around the world.
A group that The Political Commentator is extremely proud to be part of!
Each week the members select and submit an article that they have written in addition to one article from a non-council blog they find to be particularly topical and important.
While you may not always agree with what you read, that fact alone may make the experience much more valuable!
Once all of the nominated articles have been received at an undisclosed location by the Council leader, a location that is well hidden in an underground bunker located on the Left Coast of the United States, the Watchers Council members review and vote for their favorite entries.
These votes are protected and held by outside auditing firm Arthur Andersen until such time as they are counted and a winner has been chosen for the Grand Prize.
This Grand Prize which consists of the appreciation of ones peers.
In the end, however, we are all winners for having had the opportunity to read the analysis of the critical issues of the day.
In a nutshell, the Watchers Council is the ultimate conservative blog aggregator!
