So, you claim the US will collapse but you don't think it will be as bad as a third world nation? Isn't a collapse worse than a third world nation?
I mean, at least those countries have some semblance of government. If ours was to collapse, i.e. no more United States, i'd think anarchy would be
worse than the third world.
IF the US were to collapse, i agree that it wouldn't be influenced by the 2008 election. Great Empires, and that's what the USA is, decline over
very long periods of time. The collapse would be more like a long drawn out sigh. So i could see the USA no longer being composed of all 50 states by
the time of my death in approximately 50 years time. But not before that.
To another poster, how could the USA's decline have begun in 1913 when we've made the vast majority of advancements SINCE then? The United States
has been one of the leading scientific nations, the wealthiest nation, the freest nation, the land of most opportunity, etc. How is that a decline? I
agree that things have been on the decline over the past 8 years but certainly not since 1913.
And let's be honest, nobody really started talking about how horrible things were going since GWB took office. Clinton was reaching out to Russia and
China, getting blow jobs in the oval office, the economy was making money. Bush I was a one-term president who showed Hussein what-for, but didn't
have any intention of liberating anyone. We were in a little baby recession and still living high off Reagan and his "tear down that wall!" speech
we've been hearing so much about, thanks to Obama in Berlin.
Every sovereign nation has experienced ups and downs and even though i'm concerned about the major issues we are facing right now, i don't think
they're enough to collapse the country.
America's time in the forefront may be drawing to a close, and that's okay with me. It's not our world to lead or to destroy. Maybe it's Russia's
turn to really drive the bus for awhile and if that's the case, i'll be concerned. But not afraid. Why be afraid?
