I propose the US has been encouraged to sink into oblivion so as to seduce the people into accepting rule from some world government organization. The US is shrinking in power and prestige. Everything being done only exacerbates the problem.....You want to tell me that the decline is an accident? The people will not wake up until we are goose stepping down Lenin street in the newly named city of Commytown, formerly known as Washington DC.
After 50 years of anti communist brainwashing it must be dificult to let it go. That's why so many americans see reds everywhere. You are so fearful of the communists that you are creating a fascist system that mussolini would be proud of. Except your trains don't run on time and you are neither safe nor free.

You equate greatness with power and talk about 'our place'. What is it with you Yanks. You are so focused on being 'number one', feeling that it is your birthright, that you don't seem to notice what the empire is costing you. Did you ever hear the term 'A Pyrrhic victory'?
The US has never been stronger, it is unchallenged militarily and yet it is bogged down in two wars against people hiding in caves. It is economically stronger than any other nation on this earth and yet it can't provide basic healthcare for all it's citizens and is consistently rated mediocre on every important measure. Infant mortality, equality in the workplace, literacy, scientific understanding, quality of life, happiness...
