Alright guys settle down and lay off Russian, he's made some good points and we don't need to bring the whole creationism vs evolution thing into this, there are way too many threads on it already.

You Americans need to relax and remember that there are 6,000,000,000 people on the planet not just your little 300,000,000. You are a superpower the whole world knows it, get over it. America will fall someday, every empire before yours has and someday you will join them. As will everyone else.

I really don't care how big you Americans think you are, by having to shout it out so much it just shows the insecurites inherent to your country. I could give less of a damn where everyone is from too, but Russian is right, America is a land of immigrants, even the Native Americans came across the land bridge from Asia durring the Ice Age.

So please, we were having a nice discussion about America's economic weaknesses, now please take your overly patriotic propaganda and give it back to Fox News, Rush or wherever else you got it from. I for one am sick of it.

May Peace Travel With You

If USA falls.....Where will it fall too? You think suddenly we are going to dissolve? As for oil, we have years worth of it stockpiled to run our country and military, we would be fine. Not to mention that we have the ability to quickly increase domestic production of oil and the technology to quickly implement new energy replacements. U.S. has a lot of options, moreso than any other nation.

As far as debt goes, yes it is a problem. But, no country is going to demand debt payment from the U.S. because they cant pay their debt to us. If the U.S. was in real trouble, all it would have to do is say....ok pay us first. This world runs on debt and it is all on paper. In order to "ruin" the u.s. economy, they woudl have to destroy their own economy first. We are in a much better situation to quickly rebuild our economy than any other nation. In the end, a global meltdown for economies worldwide would only result in the U.S. being #1 again.

or if they dont want to pay us back but demand money from us all we have to do is send out the B-2's

Its not like we have to pay the debts to the foerign countries. It's not like anyone can force us to pay up. To them your a hostage and your gonna tell the hostage taker to let you go when he/she has the gun. If we go broke everybody gets screwed. Sure everyone would have all that cash but inflation would screw them. Plus I'm sure an ICBM could cause people to forget our outstanding debts.

I don't mind this topic but it honestly could have been given a better name like USA's vulnerability or weakness not how to destroy america. If America were to collapse like many have said the effects would be worldwide but I doubt very catastrophic.

Not one single American I have met has ever said to me we're a superpower let's go tell every one we bump into so contrary to what you think Americans don't boast about that. The average american you would meet wouln't even care. All they would care about is making their money to buy groceries and pay bills.

Ohh and Russian plz dont ask for children to stay of the forums or this posts(not sure which one you meant). I know you weren't dissing us but we can use our freedoms and learn from these forums. The best age for a person to learn is when they're young.

By the way I too am a 15 year old and I'm proud of that.

Someone asked for the opinion of an economist, I am a venture capitalist. I make my living by understanding world economies and investing in companies. If in some highly unlkley scenario where the U.S. goes into a massive depression similar to the Great Depressin of the 30s It would have a MASSIVE effect on the world economy. China whose trade imbalance with the U.S. is measured in the billions would be hardest hit. Thier economy would take a severe nose dive. Europe as well would take a big hit as the U.S. is currently a net importer from europe. Mexico would also be hit very hard with that economic trouble extending south thrugh South America. People in Africa would die by the hundreds of thousands as the U.S. aid packages are feeding millions on that continent. Japan would be affected as its two biggest markets, America and Europe, would both be in the midst of a severe recession. The fact is in this day and age the economies of all 1st world nations are inexorably intertwined and a blow to any one would have an impact on the others. However as the U.S. is the largest consumer worldwide a major recession here wuld affect the rest of the world far more than a major recession in germany or even the U.K. The only country I see that would weather the economic earthquake these hypothetical events would cuase without to much discomfort is australia.

All is true, so do you people really think China,Europe and Japan would let that happen, I think not. They would support us to protect themselves. America falling to economic failure is probably one of there worst fears.

Hey man, how is stating how big we are, showing our insecurities, I think it shows how proud we are of our country. I smell jealousy.

Or maybe i smelled envy?
Actually the U.S.A is beyond a super power...
I think is also says how China isn't even close to our military strength. Interesting article.

(And i am 15 years old also, look how smart youth is nowadays.)

"Frankly my dear i dont give a d@mn" its not like were going to let this happen even with Bush in office. I'm American and I'm proud of it but I still envy other countries like Canada for free health care. Sure we don't have to pay up but lets not flex our muscle to show it.

P.S. Let the kids join in its not like this is MTV.

The first rule of American government is that you can always change the rules. You have to remember that money is merely a representation of goods and services, which do not disappear just because there isn't money available. The government can and probably would issue an emergency order of sorts, which would basically create short-term socialism in which stocks, wages, prices, production, etc would be frozen, corporations would be ordered to continue operation essentially on faith, and when it was all sorted out the government would probably make a few payouts to the businesses that were vitally damaged. Others would just have to tough it out. They could basically mitigate it to a really really bad day for the stock market.

To truly destroy this nation you have to keep it simple. You infiltrate pawns into the American government, they continue business (and corruption) as usual, and then all at once... they start telling the truth. The revolution will come swiftly.
