Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad predicted the United States will collapse due to its massive debt. Addressing the Kuwaiti media, he asked, "How long can a government with a $16 trillion foreign debt remain a world power?" This is a question many Americans wish would be contemplated in the presidential debates. Neither candidate is serious at all about paying off the debt; they won't even balance the budget, which would be a start in the right direction.
The Iranian President continued his analysis, "The Americans have injected their paper wealth into the world economy and today the aftermaths and negative effects of their pseudo-wealth have plagued them." How many times have Obama or Romney referred to the "pseudo-wealth" in the United States? Instead, all these stooges do is raise the debt ceiling indefinitely, pretending debt does not matter. This is the all-important issue Libertarian candidate Governor Johnson would raise in the debate. But imagining Johnson in the third debate is like imagining Ahmadinejad in the third debate - not going to happen. That actually sound reinvigorating: Ahmadinejad could add that fiscally responsible touch to the third presidential debate.
