1 According to a survey that was just conducted, only 36 percent of all Americans can name the three branches of government.

#2 Only 25 percent of all Americans know how long U.S. Senators are elected for (6 years), and only 20 percent of all Americans know how many U.S. senators there are.




#3 Even if you include same-sex couples in the numbers, the marriage rate in the United States is at a 93 year low.

#4 For the first time ever, single Americans make up more than half the U.S. population.

#5 31.1 percent of American young adults in the 18 to 34-year-old age bracket are currently living with their parents.

#6 One out of every ten teen girls in America engages in “self-harm”. Cutting and burning are the most common forms that this “self-harm” takes.

#7 One survey found that 85 percent of all young men in America and almost half of all young women in America watch porn at least once a month.

#8 A different survey discovered that 64 percent of American men of all ages view pornography at least once per month.

#9 The Internet can be used for great good, but it can also be used for great evil. It is being reported that 83 percent of U.S. boys and 57 percent of U.S. girls have been exposed to group sex while on the Internet.

#10 One survey discovered that 25 percent of all employees that have Internet access in the United States visit sex websites while they are at work.

#11 There is an epidemic of porn watching among federal employees. For example, one Treasury Department worker said that he viewed 13,000 pornographic images within the span of six weeks because he did “not have enough work to do“.

#12 An astounding 30 percent of all Internet traffic now goes to adult websites.

#17 Approximately 60 million Americans have a problem with alcohol addiction.

#18 Heroin traffic in New York City is at a 20 year high.

#19 Of all the major industrialized nations, America is the most obese. Mexico is #2.

#20 Back in 1962, only 13 percent of all Americans were obese, but it is being projected that 42 percent of all Americans could be obese by the year 2030.

#21 70 percent of Americans do not “feel engaged or inspired at their jobs”.

#22 40 percent of all workers in the United States actually make less than what a full-time minimum wage worker made back in 1968 after you account for inflation.

#23 Small business ownership in the United States is at the lowest level that has ever been recorded.

#24 It is hard to believe, but 56 percent of all Americans now have “subprime credit”.

#25 The United States has the most lawyers per capita in the entire world.

#26 The United States has the highest incarceration rate and the largesttotal prison population in the entire world by a wide margin.

#27 While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the U.S. national debt has grown by more than 7 trillion dollars.

#28 During the Obama years, sexual assaults in the U.S. military have soared to an all-time high, and most of the assaults have been male on male.

#29 According to one absolutely shocking study, 22 military veterans kill themselves in the United States every single day.

#30 The top Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives is Nancy Pelosi. The top Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives is John Boehner. More often than not, they seem to be working together. Is this really the best that America can do?

#31 There are more than 3 million reports of child abuse in the United States every single year.

#32 At this point, approximately one out of every three children in the United States lives in a home without a father.

#35 Approximately one-third of the entire population of the United States (110 million people) currently has a sexually transmitted disease according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

#36 Every single year, there are 20 million new STD cases in America.

#37 America has the highest STD infection rate in the entire industrialized world.

#38 Americans in the 15 to 24-year-old age group account for about 50 percent of all new STD cases each year.

#39 It costs our nation approximately 16 billion dollars a year to treat our sexually transmitted diseases.

#40 According to one survey, 24 percent of all U.S. teens that have STDs say that they still have unprotected sex.

#41 In the United States today, more than half of all couples “move in together” before they get married.

#42 For couples that have children that are just “living together”, two-thirds of them split up by the time they have a child turn 10 years of age.

#43 For women under the age of 30 in the United States, more than half of all babies are being born out of wedlock.

#44 According to a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately two-thirds of all Americans in the 15 to 24-year-old age bracket have engaged in oral sex.

#45 Suicide has now actually surpassed car accidents as the number one cause of “injury death” in the United States.

#46 In a massacre that is almost unspeakable, more than 56 million American babies have been slaughtered in this country since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.

#47 Approximately 47 percent of the women that get an abortion each year in the United States have also had a previous abortion.

#48 The number of American babies killed by abortion each year is roughly equal to the number of U.S. military deaths that have occurred in all of the wars that the United States has ever fought combined.

Huh?
Who knew that living with ssomeone before marriage was destroying the US?
...guy sure has a porn fixation as well.

The financial stuff, yeah. And we are overmedicated and fat.
Living with someone before marriage and watching porn with them is no one's business but that couple's. The Moral Majority rides again!

Agreed!

I thought watching porn was a form of "SAFE SEX"?

As Long as you wash your hand.


The good points of that list were buried by all of the morality high horse.
You could probably pare it down to 12, maybe 15.

America is in decline for many reasons, but most of these are just insane. Top of my list is that young adults today will have a lower standard of living and less rewarding job opportunities than their parents did. That is a 100% sure sign that your nation is in decline, no other examples needed.

You beat me to those comments...apparently there's more sex in that list than anything else. So sex is bad and leads to moral decay?

ahahah I stopped reading after #7. How does that show a country in decline.

Oh crap, did I just contribute to the decline of America?
For a country with enough nukes to destroy the world
and more military bases than i've had hot meals, your
people seem quite easily defeated by an awkward situation.
I agreed with a 1/4 of what was in that list, but REALLY?
No one ever had any STD's, sex out of wedlock or looked
at a naked picture of a lady (or group of women) until
the creation of America? BTW , for a whole swathe
of human existance almost no one married before
bearing children. I thought America was all
about liberty and freedom of choice, you seem
quite against that. (ie. STAY OUT MY EFFING BEDROOM/
RELATIONSHIP)

The majority of Nazis were ok with exterminating the Jews. Moral majority means nothing, another fallacy"everyone is doing it!".

My wife and I had a baby out of wedlock. Then a year later we married. Been together for 15 years and have three screamin' brats. I don't see how we hurt America by doing it this way.

LOL

Right on. Running from the truth when it's a bitter pill to swallow is the real reason here. You can run that all across the board and it applies to everything and everyone pretty much anywhere. With America leading the pack of scared rats.

It doesn't cause moral decay it's a symptom. Same thing happened with our ancestor Rome. That whole fall of Rome thing would have gone different with nukes and cruise missiles.

The point is most Americans are so disillusioned at this point that they can't maintain healthy relationships and are engaging in more and more self harm and abuse of others.

This list is pretty flawed but you guys are engaging in the western thought mode. Look at the forest not the tree. The tree in front of you is beautiful but not so far the forest is burning.

I only got to about #7 and shook my head in wonderment at why I had read even that many. Of those seven, none I could find had anything to do with America's "decline". Decline from what? Some puritan model utopia which the US never was?
People watching porn?

I skipped to #44. Oral sex?????? Having oral sex is a "fact of decline", Are you kidding me?

The last five are all about abortion?????? Yeah, I guess my first guess was correct. Some puritan model utopia.

The reason America is in decline is because the individual has been thrown under the bus in favor of a Corporate fascist takeover.

Work, consume, fight the pointless wars and stfu....
