Did I accidently click on Rense.com? Wow what a bunch of anti-everything talk!
The US is far from dying:
1) We have nukes
2) We are the safest free market in the world that doesn't put up with corruption.
3) We have freedom of speech...like this board. That allows for discussion and change.
4) China invests a lot in the US since this is the most desirable market
5) The UN has no power.
6) The EU is not a "United States of Europe". It is differing factions agreeing to an economic truce, not a social one (yet).
7) Russia is beginning to show signs of life...the EU will want an ally in the US.
8) US has the best higher education system in the world.
I think the election of Hilary Clinton would be the most divisive thing for this country. Hopefully a moderate can calm the country. I have nothing
against her, she is a smart woman, but I don't think this country needs another polarizing leader that leaves half the country scheming to destroy
her and the presidency. The same goes for the Republicans, though it sounds as McCain is their man and I dont' see him as being as polarizing as Mrs.
Clinton would be.
Increases in bankruptcy is the other thing that hopefully will teach people a lesson to stop seeing a loan as being "the good life". The good life
is not having someone else control your life with a loan. The other bad stuff is that the youth are addicted to the empty secular lifestyle. The best
thing to hit them in the face was the Iraq War and teach them that what is on the radio, internet or MTV has little to do with real life.
If the Islamic World does decide to start threatening with nukes, the US will be seen as a leader or a target. All bets are off then. The US people
will demand the elimination of anyone that
I say the US will meet some challenges in 4 years, 10 years, and 30 years that will eat away at its superpower status.
