The looming default of our nations economy could result in riots, according to Sarah Palin. She proposes that the potential threat of rioting in the streets is the reason the government is stock piling ammunition.
“If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done,” Palin wrote of the sequester set to hit on Friday. “Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.”
The sequester, which Obama proposed to fix our current economic crisis, is now being criticized by the very person who signed it into law–showing that his intentions to reign in negligent government spending were insincere.
In a Facebook note on Tuesday in which she blistered D.C. politicians for yet another “ginned-up” crisis, Palin wrote that the “real economic Armageddon looming before us is our runaway debt, not the sequester, which the President advocated for and signed into law and is now running around denouncing because he never had any genuine intention of reining in his reckless spending.”
Palin said the world knows that if Washington politicians cannot even deal with a modest 0.3% per year cut in the federal budget, then the country is heading straight for default.
A default could lead to riots, but bullets are certainly not the answer.
