What If America falls?
I would imagine if we fell many countries wouldn't be to far behind us after all we are the worlds largest group of consumers not to mention the worlds bread basket we are a huge exporter of grain many people and places would go hungry if we fell.
I don't understand why so many people think if we fall that we are going to fall alone.edit on 9-5-2011 by AmerikanDekline because: (no reason given)

It will not fall.
There may be unrest. There may be transition. And the rest of the world may get very, very pissed by the time we have put our financial house in order, but the U.S. and its actual economic position will not fall.
1. China, much to their dismay, can't afford for it to fall.
2. We feed the world. Cut our dollar. Jack up oil. Do whatever you must. And then watch our food export prices simply rise to the new occasion.
3. Despite the enacted policies of the last several decades the individualism of U.S. culture is far better suited to isolationism than it is to the globalist "its a small world after all". We can feed ourselves. We can build shelter. Most Americans, yes even the elitist leftists who would rather not admit it, don't REALLY care what the rest of the world thinks. We could default tomorrow and many would consider it finally being paid for everything that has been placed on our shoulders over the past decades in terms of policing the world.
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that Americans don't care about people around the world, as a people we are very caring and sharing, especially in good times. It's just that we tend to be a home first kind of place. If things get really hairy we will just close the door, pull the shutters, and wait for the storm to pass. And it will.

We do not manufacture, most of the corn in the midwest is "crap" corn and ethanol corn, our largest fleet are the export ships that sit rusting. What does America have that the world needs or what NAT/NWO needs?
