What would happen if the dollar crashes?

That’s one question that I get from time to time as my friends and I bandy things about. To say the least, the pre-crash period will be increasingly harsh for we little people, and near term prospects post-crash will be horrific to say the least. Depending on what WE THE PEOPLE do in the meantime will make all the difference in the world about how the long term prospects play out.
Right now, we’re witnessing the replay of the gigantic stock market crash in Europe of 1929, which will be followed almost immediately by a crash in the U.S. stock market. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/eu-bank-failures-will-crash-wall-street-again-2011-10-18?pagenumber=1  Yes, the Great Depression started in Europe back then as it is about to now, but even more important is the level of debt here in the U.S. and how much further we’ve allowed our system to get sucked under to the point where the U.S. cannot print money any more to pay for anything, even as a record number of people are dependent on the government.  Right now we are at the end of a deflationary period, and speeding into a rapid inflationary period. 
The U.S.’s greatest creditors are no longer buying treasuries (our debt) and the Federal Reserve has been buying some 85% of all treasuries for the last several years. This is the very epitome of a Ponzi scheme… printing money out of thin air to be used AT INTEREST by the government, then buying government debt with that thin-air money which would also pay interest. On top of that, the Federal Reserve has been printing trillions of dollars and lending out to foreign banks. Just last week the Fed announced they would guarantee the derivatives debt (gambling losses backed by no assest whatsoever) of Bank of America… some $75 trillion.  The world’s total GDP is only like $60 trillion. You do that math and then multiply Bank of America’s bailout (transfering their private debt to the public sector) times the other 5 or 6 huge megabanks, and we really do have the recipe for a global melt-down. 
The status of the Dollar as the reserve currency of the world has bought us a lot of time, but that time is coming to an end.  A lot of governments are already making arrangements to cease accepting dollars in any form, and most governments are dumping U.S. treasury holdings. 
SO WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN?
Okay… the dollar won’t be accepted any more outside the U.S., and the government won’t be able to raise money by selling treasuries, so they’ll try to raise money by other means… jacking up taxes, instituting currency controls, stopping purchasing of precious metals (TSA is already confiscating cash, gold and silver bullion at checkpoints), already raiding Federal Pension funds and likely to nationalize private pensions, 401Ks and IRAs. They’ll grab everything on the way down.
On the flip side, they’ll enact “price controls” that won’t take inflation into account, which will also result in shortages of just about everything… particularly food. 
The French Revolution was all about this exact type of systemic meltdown… rampant printing of unbacked currency, food shortages after price controls and rationing to the point where the people started dragging the banker class to the guillotines!   If you think the protests at “Occupy Wall Street” and “Occupy the Fed” are something, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Wait until people can’t afford to feed themselves.
As the money dries up so will essential services. There are already close to 100 municipalities around the country that are declaring bankrupcy, and several states are getting ready to. They will start by grabbing pensions and defaulting on medical insurance. It’s already happening.
There have been several videos about the day the dollar actually dies… one is called “Meltup” on the National Inflation Association’s website http://inflation.us/videos.html    You should get plenty of ideas of how to prepare for the upcoming meltdown.  Short term, you can easily expect runs on the banks and bank holidays, martial law, curfews and checkpoints, greater restriction of freedom and escalating violent crime. You can also expect a lot of people to starve.
Now… how we approach this now is where it gets interesting.  If we allow the globalist oligarchs to have their way with us, whoever survives the meltdown will all be picking cotton on the Rothschilds’ plantation… and there won’t be very many survivors.  David Icke spells that agenda out very succinctly:   http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/55045-david-icke-essential-knowledge-for-a-wall-street-protestor-and-everyone-else  They fully plan on replacing all national currencies with one world electronic currency (no cash) and one world government by them alone.  This is where we gotta be careful.
If, however, we manage to do this right, beginning with throwing out all these bums… beginning with making arrests of all these bankers and the politicians in their back pockets (check their campaign contributors), followed by trials, confiscation of their property and public executions.
Then write-off all debts, since they’re mostly derivative or fraudulently induced anyway, and start fresh with some basic laws on the books and the wherewithall to enforce them. We would actually do very well to start utilitarian state banks that don’t have to pay dividends to investors… there are several states in which those are doing very well.
Pull all troops and equipment back from wherever they are stationed… period.
Enforce our borders and kick out all illegal aliens… period. We need the jobs.
All foreign aid stops… period.
Return government power to the most localized level possible… which is always more beneficial and logical. Government should be from the bottom up, not from the top down as it is now.
Even if we have to completely start from scratch with a new monetary system, even if it means coming down to every state  franking their own currency without paying interest to some bank, then we stand to come out of this mess in pretty good shape.
The lone fact that nobody will want the U.S. currency for probably years means that we will be forced to reboot our own industrial sector with a crafts/manufacturing movement to fill our own needs, which would eventually lead to the creation of a new export economy.  We can essentially return to the post-Civil War America that enjoyed tariff protection of our industry, the expansion of creativity and communications, and internal commerce that benefited all of our citizens, without the encumbrance of taxes or entitlements. Everyone will have to work to earn a wage.
Yeah, long term we could come out of this all right… if we do this right.
