Corruption and debt are the real issues. Corrupt politicians want to put land onto the federal balance sheet so they can sell leases and real estate to their sponsors. As they’ve done this for 50 years and racked up huge deficits buying votes the end game approaches.
If I was there I would have had this sign:
If we revolt who will pay your debts?
They need to clean up their act and fast. If/when a collapse comes the reconstruction will go VERY HARD on the crooks who got us there.
