    $19 trillion!!! Just think about this for a second. Even if we could find our way to a modest $190 billion annual surplus it would take 100 years to pay the debt off in full. My grave fear is when interest rates finally start inching higher we won't be able to roll over our positions without getting dinged for higher debt service. It only takes small incremental interest rate bumps to cause the percentage of the budget to increase significantly. So, as fewer and fewer investors show interest in our debt it will become even more expensive for us to borrow more. It is a vicious circle that, I feel, can only result in hyperinflation.

    Let's not forget about our unfunded liabilities: Estimated unfunded liabilities exceed $100 trillion between, Medicare, Social Security and the Prescription Drug Program. This type of budget imbalance can only result in bad things for all of us.

    In my opinion most likely major region or entire country SHTF scenario would be rolling blackouts on a level that makes the California blackouts look like a rehearsal.Why, obviously outdated grid & our enemies have shown plenty of will to do so.

    If I had joined and replied to this thread two years ago when it started, my answer would've been different. However, given today's reality, the most likely scenarios in my opinion are the following:

    - Economic Collapse
    - EMP attack
    - Muslim infiltration through "refugees"
    - Martial law declared due to unrelenting civil unrest (which Obama is doing a great job of making happen)
    - Lastly, more far-fetched but not ruling it out, all out war and invasion by Russia/China/N.Korea.

    That is a real possibility but until Russia's oil economy improves I'd suspect you're safe for a while.

    Ok, there are so many possible scenarios that could be potentially hazardous, but one in particularly bad for the United States- a High altitude EMP. Lately I've been reading a lot of post apocalyptic fiction, and three main scenarios play out very well- infections (ZOMBIES!!cool!), ones regarding worldwide organic destruction (think no living plant life-at all! Cool premise), and of course HEMP, easily the most realistic and devastating. Then i began to truly research EMPs, because surely, we are protected to some degree, right? I mean, hell, I've had a faraday cage since 2011! So surely our esteemed government has taken care of the electric grid, right? Not so much.. In fact, DOD has some th hardened, Norad, began to work on their end of things last year (still not completed), but as far as the most critical of infrastructures? Not so much.. but then, who would be crazy enough to use an EMP on the US? North Korea, Iran, Syria, China.. and they are ALL capable..

    I would say that he most likely SHTF scenario would be the collapse of structures government in the United States. It seems that the political climate is one of distrust and comedy versus anything that people can truly rally behind. As the country continues to ignore problems and instead be focused by media stories on non essential issues , there could very possible end us in a collapse of government due to revolt .
