The US will still be a world player.
We aint going anywhere.
I can't speak for all of us but...
I'm actually looking forward to the future personally. I have a feeling and it is reflected in many of the views I see everyday. The US is in the
prosses of major change. For many "Change" is painful. People also tend to fear the unknown. It's all a case of perspective really...
Many around the world see this as the "END" of America.
Real Americans have a subtle underlying thread running through all of us no matter Race, Religion, or Social Economic background. Many Americans think
OK Here we go again. While silently thinking to ourselves. [OH GOODY another Challenge] Americans traditionally love a Good Fight, Competition, ETC.
Like it or not and lay blame where they may the US is headed towards a Green economy. It will take many years and there will be lots of "Whining"
Arguing and plenty of bent and tweaked noses over the issues but in the end most Americans want off the fossil fuel crutch we have been on since the
beginning. That way we can stop hemorrhaging our wealth to the middle east and in the near future to other Central Asian countries.
That's step one!
Step two will be to stop spending more of our wealth on top of the line weapon systems. Yes we will still maintain the most advanced military on Earth
but not in the numbers to control a global Empire. The money and research and our talent can then be focused on advanced research and development for
even more exotic technologies than the world has ever seen
In other words
You aint seen nothing yet.
