From blog visitor John Lloyd (cacofonix)
Candidates’ speeches ignore impending US debt disaster
JL: FWIW, my view of the American Empire and its future has veered sharply southwards in the past few years, but that's a whole other freakin' collection of topics.

Anyhow: The SF Gate article I'm referencing here may be a bit outside your usual scope, but I thought you might find it interesting. I originally found this link on a blog maintained by one Claire Wolfe.

Concerning the linked item, Ms. Wolfe opines:

"THE MOST IMPORTANT THING about this very important article is that it doesn't come from a libertarian think tank or conservative economic institute. The warning is now getting out into the mainstream. Will the rest of us prepare for the looming disaster that both Kerry and Bush refuse to acknowledge?"
At the risk of belabouring the obvious, I'll mention that Claire Wolfe is a right-libertarian and apparent agnostic who holds a rather higher opinion of Ayn Rand than I do; she is not, however, a fire-breathing Objectivist. She writes regularly for Loompanics, whose catalogue you'd probably find entertaining if you're not already familiar with it. [End.]
