I have to go against the grain on this one guys, I dont think America will ever fall to the extent where total collapse is unavoidable, i think at
most it will be weakened to a state where we are no longer at the top. At worst we will be second or third down the ladder. Here is my reasons for
1. The world can not afford to have the US collapse, the US is the number one consumer in the world. This would effect every other economy on earth.
The less we buy the less they(like china) are needed to employ millions to manufacuture. If our economy slows so does everyone elses. Countries like
china would have to be 100% self sufficiant and they have a long way to go before they have that luxury.
2. Oil is NOT our major concern as most people would think. In fact the USGS found a large surplus of oil in the wyoming area of the US that was
thought to be only a few millions of barrels. However just this past year the USGS stated that there findings were wrong. IN fact there is so much oil
there the US could actually have more oil than saudi Arabia, although this oil is trapped in rock and is hard to mine it can be done. So really we
dont need everyone elses oil, we just like using theres first. Remember our tanks, trucks , jeeps, jets, some ships and rockets drink oil at a fast
pace, its a race of attrition. And we want to have ours to use still when everyone has none.
3. WAR!! If america were to get so weak that it is in danger of attack the economy could explode!! We all know what helped us get out of the great
depression? WWII did. Especially if we were facing multiple enemys with large armys. The amount of production that would be requested would be
4. Our debt- yeah so china owns 80% of it and this is actually a rather big deal, however if the US was in dire need to get the cash flow coming in
again it could take drastic measures to adjust. These are the ideas that never make the news or get talked about. Like we just STOP borrowing from
countries all together. Just like cutting up your credit card. No bill=more money! This could anger and make other countries very unstable.
5.Americans are the most goal oriented, dream driven people on earth if americans want something they will work for it and get it done, we tend to
work better when we get knocked down. As hitler stated(I dont like to quote him, but he did have his few moments of clarity) He stated he feared
America greatly because everyone on the planet with ambition moved to the land where you could make your world from the ground up, this is the land
where the strong gathered.
