Found this during my morning AntiWar check. Most of us realize what can and is happening to the US, but if you don't understand what is probably going to happen then please read this and think about what is said.

What 2016 Might Look Like
by Philip Giraldi

Many traditional conservatives, libertarians, and progressives who are no longer mesmerized by the Obama persona are beginning to realize that the 2012 elections might be the last chance to right the ship of state. Either we Americans can continue down a fear-driven path that will lead to our transformation into a police state with a declining economy, retaining only the trappings of a constitutional republic, or we can admit that the legacy of the past 10 years has been like a metastasizing cancer, something that should be surgically removed and discarded.

Fantasy? Well, maybe. But who would have thought during the summer of 2001 that the United States would declare war on the entire world and become embroiled in a number of unwinnable conflicts in Asia, that it would willingly bankrupt itself to do so, that Americans would accept the wholesale dismemberment of the Bill of Rights, and that electoral and political corruption would reach unprecedented levels. Osama bin Laden, the man blamed for the terrorist attacks in September of that year, openly boasted of his plans to bankrupt the United States by getting it to overreact to presumed threats. Did he ever get that right, with Bush and Obama acting predictably and cluelessly. Unless someone in Washington is smart enough to turn around the playbook, America will continue to slide into despair and disillusionment, and the answer will always be the same: more repression, more blame directed at outside forces, more lashing out like a wounded giant. Do nothing and 2016 could easily mark the death of the United States of America.

The highlighted text is my edit to make a point.

Is there still time to save this situation I sure think there is. Will we the people do what is needed to save the situation, I truly don't know. But if we do nothing then the country and the world will be suffer for our in action.

The rest of the world (particularly China and Russia) have uncoupled their economies from the USA so you could go down the toilet and they wouldn't blink. Who needs a Cold War when a real, protracted one will dump you?
