The Pesky Neighbor and the Debt Ceiling by Ron Paul

Imagine you had a pesky neighbor who somehow took out a mortgage on his house in your name and by some legal trickery you were obligated to pay for it.  Imagine watching this neighbor throw drunken parties, buy expensive cars, add more rooms to the house, and hire dozens of people to wait on him hand and foot.  Imagine that he also managed to take out several credit cards in your name.  One by one, he would max them out and then use your good name and credit to obtain another credit card, then another and then another.  Each time, this neighbor would claim that he needed the new credit card to pay interest on the other maxed out credit cards.  If he defaulted on those cards, your credit score would be hurt and when you wanted to buy something for yourself, it would be more difficult to get a loan and the interest you paid would be higher.  Imagine that you mulled this over, and time after time, said nothing as he filled out more credit applications so he would not have to default on the other debt taken out in your name.  Meanwhile, another shiny new Mercedes appears in his driveway.  At what point do you think you might get tired of this game?  And, even though you are left with no really good options, do you think you might eventually tell him to go ahead and default, just stop spending your money!
