The World better HOPE that the U.S. does not fall...and it won't...we have been in much worse case scenarios that what is going on right now and still come out on top. During the Great Depression...During WWII when the U.S. was completely Bankrupt...during the American Civil War....we have always come back and stronger.

The reason why the U.S. will not fall like Rome is that...EVERY COUNTRY ON EARTH HAS A STAKE IN OUR SUCCESS! Especially CHINA who has loaned us money and you can't collect a dept that you have no ability to force payment of.

Don't get me wrong...the U.S. has some House Cleaning to do and it is time to put our country first for awhile. But something major has changed in the past 5 years. A MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH IN WEAPONS. This will allow massive military defense cuts but at the same time actually strengthen our Military Capabilities 100 Fold.

Still compared to the U.S. GNP...we really don't spend all that great of a percentage compared with the rest of our economy which is the Worlds Largest. The WORLD DEPENDS ON U.S. IMPORTING OF THEIR GOODS! If the U.S. should fall then so will the rest of the World. NO WHERE is this more so than CHINA! If the U.S. stopped making Payments on Chinese Loans and stopped allowing any Chinese Goods to be allowed to be received at U.S. Ports...the Chinese Economy would COLLAPSE within a WEEK!

The reality is...the economy is a force unto itself and even though we have built up heavy debt a turn around will have us rapidly paying off this debt as that is what happens when the Worlds Largest Economy turns around.

Rome grew complacent. The U.S. is always bringing in New Blood of Immigrants who seek their part of the American Dream. Add this to a total redesigned Military of Capabilities unimaginable at a low cost...we are very quickly back in the game and still on top. Split Infinity

Im sure you mean "cited" but anyways, since the author clearly did not feel the need to back up anything he is saying with facts or figures i don't see why anyone else should be bothered to.
Would it make you feel better if I just listed a few books and a link to wiki answers at the end of the list I started?


Thanks for the catch on my spelling.

The original article lists several sources.

No, the article has links in it which are not sources nor does it make it correct.
The earth is flat LINK
see?

And you don't really need a source or a reference to say we are not like Rome. The military part was a good example, Rome occupied territories and called them Rome, we have a military base in japan but japan still belongs to japan.

Let me guess - you think I am wrong! lol

Seriously.

The US is in worse shape than it has ever been in ever in it's history. It was not bankrupt during the second war, in fact it lent the UK a very substantial sum of money because the UK was bankrupt - at interest, which we finallly finished paying off in the 80's.

Reading this may help you: www.paulcraigroberts.org...

Also read this :truththeory.com...


Earlier this year, George Soros told the following to Newsweek….

‘I am not here to cheer you up. The situation is about as serious and difficult as I’ve experienced in my career,’ Soros tells Newsweek. ‘We are facing an extremely difficult time, comparable in many ways to the 1930s, the Great Depression.

We are facing now a general retrenchment in the developed world, which threatens to put us in a decade of more stagnation, or worse. The best-case scenario is a deflationary environment. The worst-case scenario is a collapse of the financial system.’


And it is all because of your stupid duckwit government.

(The fact that I am not from the US is unimportant in this debate. Millions of Americans agree with me about your stupid duckwit government.)

Did I mention..... lol

It took the (unified) Roman Empire several centuries to decline and fall. The decline was gradual and more a transformation. Your list is too simplistic and merely selects elements which may have currency in the US today.

Maybe. But the Fall of the Roman Empire led to 800 years of the Dark Ages.
