Yup So who picks up the ball? Russia? China? Or do we go into some sort of Dark Ages like when the Roman Empire fell. What wasnt in the video is
when Peter Schiff was called Anti American by Charles Payne from Wstreet.com. Yes I did email him and got this response....
History shows us the way on this one..
Every time in Human history a new "great" civilization emerges (defined by individualized persona of military, culture, customs, typically ethnicity
but not always) there is a "technological" explosion. With it, almost always came a surge in military and economic power, increased standards of
living, and innovations once thought impossible.
Every time in Human history, the civilization hits a climax of power.. it's culture spreads as far as it can, it's economic influence stretched,
it's military at every corner of the empire..
Every time some form of dysfunction within the centralized government, or the system of most influence, is the leading cause of collapse. No major
civilization's empire collapsed directly through outside force. (World Power) ..
Every time this happens, and the civilization in question declines, it is always followed by a period of stagnation, deflation, war, chaos, disorder
and various forms of imperialism (economic, land, wealth) ..
Every time. I challange anyone to name a World Power in history that's decline did not lead to such.
List goes on. America cannot be "replaced" (for lack of a better word) because in order to do so it would willingly have to concede that it is no
longer a major world player.. something that has never happened before. Something I doubt that would.. In other words, someone would have to take it
from us, even if it's on the way down.
Next World Super Power? .. China has a lot of producers.... but give it 20 yrs and it will have twice as many Consumers as America.
BTW anyone wanted to let Mr Payne know how you feel have fun
Man, that guy's a prick lol .. very immature response.. Honestly, shows the intellect of the people we are supposed to trust to tell us what's goin
