That all being said. I still think that the country is going down hill. 9/11 especially caused a fear that allowed government to get away with things that I don't think would have occurred without it. Depending on which party is in power, each has plans to take away rights. Congress seems for self interested than concerned about the will of the people. OP, what event would have to occur for you to think that things were starting to fall apart?

TO me, it doesnt matter how 9/11 happened.
The fact is that America, and many other countries...give the masses a choice. CHOICE.
No one forces the masses to go to war. No one forces the people to believe what they see on tv. No one forces the people to vote. No one forces the people to buy any products.
this is a great country. Those people that dont go far in their lives CHOOSe not to work hard or use their brains.

Call me weird, but I think everyone's a bit full of themselves these days. Yeah, America's not what she used to be, but her kid's ain't exactly looking after her anymore.
It's easy to say what America should be for, and then yell on the internet about it.
The way I'm looking at it, every single person on this thread so far has had a different opinion, including myself.
Groovy, but what are you going to do about it? Raise cane and yell about it, or work on it.
I still love America, I love the peoples (even though a few of them are idiots), and I love the ideas she was built on.
To bad everyone's so busy talking about 'em they don't live 'em.

Hooray!!! Down the sight of my carbine on an Iraq 'insurgent'. God I love the smell of napalm in the morning. Hoooyah.
Sorry the marlboro man went bust in his own mind.
