The first five years of the New Millennium have been turbulent - very turbulent!
Selected, coached, financed, and promoted as the winning candidate George W. Bush's mount to the first Presidency of the century was stalled on the hanging tabs of the Florida election system, a state governed by his brother John Ellis "Jeb" Bush. The matter was settled by the Supreme Court and a second Bush was granted a controversial elevation to the highest office of the land.

America's highways are in shambles; our cities are so dangerous policemen will not enter certain areas;
no need to read past that little lie.
"The President or "leader" in 2005 I believe tried desperately to be the next Lincoln and hold the country together but many of their policies drove a larger wedge into the Bill of Rights."

This isn't England where you have Camera's all over the place, there are no camera's on the streets, we are not even close to becoming a dictatorship, or a totalitarian state.
There will be NO marshall law in the United States, not even if we have another terrorist attack, unless of course it last for like a week. We are too damn free for any of that to happen, this is getting so annoying. Who ever thinks the US is in a civil war state now, or will be in 3 years is, quite frankly, living in a fantasy world. You need a reality check!

The United States has (a rough estimate) 10 times the prison enforcement parameters of China. CHINA! As repressive as you may think China is to its dissidents, the United States can easily be seen as being close to 10 times as much or worse!!!
How do YOU spell R-E-P-R-E-S-S-I-O-N???

The Chinese government is 100% worse than the US government.

I think that another war is in preparation for the next 6/12 months against North Korea, Venezuela or Iran... And they may use nuclear pre-emptive strikes... What would be the effect on the population since they declare martial law when the country is in war and that they will use nuclear weapons against country that didn't threaten us?
In the early days of the North Korea crisis, Pyongang said that in exchange for the stop of their nuclear ambitions they would need a no-agression treaty and Bush refused... So who's the problem in this? Who's ``started`` the war?

High Priest you don't get out much do you?
There are places in North St. Louis were they don't respond to 9/11 calls, at least not without Full force...Ever watch Cops??
Hmmm lets see, we have the largest prison complex in the world, and its overcrowded...and its getting worse. Not that there are so many crimminals, its there are some 200 + years of laws on the books to enforce. Any District Attorney knows that the way to Advance in our society is to incarcerate people, guilty or not...if things where so peachy here in the USA, then why so many death due to tazers.
Im still waiting for you to debunk this bud. but i don't see it happening.
our roads and bridges+ our infrastrucure in and has been in decline for some time, borderline 3rd world situation.
