How was that interesting? The article was devoid of any meaningful policy talk.

I'd cut the deficit by drastically slashing spending and lowering taxes.

Defense spending is the main factor in accumulating our ridiculous debt. I say not only completely halt the current military spending but also sell a chunk off.

And stop all foreign aid as well. Not because it isn't a good thing but simply because we don't have the money for it.

Repudiate it.

And the dollar collapses, and with it, the world economy. Brilliant.

It's deficit, not debt. You can't repudiate it. Hell, if you repudiate the debt, and then do nothing to cut spending, you wind up broke halfway through-- and your position as "supreme leader" is over. The next government will arrive in 6-8 weeks and tax the crap out of you.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.
