I have noticed many similarities between Rome and America including the growing evidence towards a political take over and induction of civil war on our home soil. If anyone knows otherwise let me know for I feel the growing mountain of negative evidence points towards a babylonian style falling of our nation.

It seems to be the fate of every republic, citizenry falls into decadence and apathy while it's politicians fall to greed and corruption.

America HAS been imitating Rome for quite some time now.......

Military garrisons placed throughout the empire.

The cost of said military crippling the state.

Power being wielded from behind the scenes through puppet and incompetent heads of state.

Assassinations of heads of state.

Vast influence over currencies of trading partners.

Significant cultural influence throughout their empire.

Imposition of foreign policy on other states

The similarities are quite striking from a certain perspective. As are certain similarities between the rise of the Third Reich and some of the current national security measures and decrees.

Empires, Kingdoms and countries rise and fall, they have since the dawn of civilization...we can only hope that they will continue to improve each time and last a little longer...but all things break down...

Yes.

Washington DC is an alien city-state that rules America, and much of the rest of the world, in the way that Rome ruled the Roman Empire, the Vatican rules the Catholic Empire and the City of London Corporation ruled the British Empire. All are quite similar.

So you think the US is going to go from being a republic and then become an empire taking over a huge chunck of the word then spit in to two empires and hundreds of years late be over run by barbarians? Trying to compare the US to Rome is a like trying to compare a the space shuttle to a roman chariot. In other words its fun but, a complete waste of time.

What ever our Heavenly Father has said will happen ? Is going to happen. And the closer we get to all of that being in the past. The happier I become.
Even in the face of death.

America has been imitating Rome from the onset. Anyone who studies history can see the similarities and compare the demise that is inevitable. There is far more to this story however, because they play a huge role in that which is prophesied in The Word of G-d.

those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it.

Careful where you learn your history from. Ever heard two eyewitness accounts of an auto accident? Makes you wonder about history.

as far as i see, history, as well as truth has three sides.
what we know, what others know, what nobody knows.

the illnesses that afflict living organisms can be detected by their symptomatic behaviours and patterns, so do those which afflict nations and states.

or do you really think i'm talking about what comes in the so called history books.

That's quite an interesting statement. I wonder if we view history in the same fashion. Something Michael Parenti has called "gentleman's history". "Wretched would be the work of those who scold, those who's daily efforts are stimulated by daily hunger". Edward Gibbon: Author of The Decline And Fall of The Roman Empire

Your platitude has truth to it, just making a statement, that's all.

and the best you had to reply to my obvious yet apropriate platitude, was another. i see..
somehow i feel we have proved the theory on display in this thread.

yes america will follow the roman way because we humans thrive on imitation.

Yes it IS!

The question is, what measures could we take to ensure certain people dont become to powerful. our system actually was great (yes a few flaws that we could overcome) until our political system was bought out by the banks

Well let's see....

1.) The US is a Republic.
2.) Military spread out across the known world {And space}
3.) We have Gladiatorial combat - UFC/Boxing - (Pro Wrestling doesn't count
}
4.) Rome had Chariots. We have split the atom, landed on the moon, broke the sound barrier, global communications networks and pizza pockets {In various flavors}

5.) Nero, I mean Obama fiddles with the economy while Rome burns


The End

Read your signature...last time we balanced the budget was under CLINTON.
Under the Bush Doctrine, we now have perpetual war against a foe that has no exact state sponsor. And a patriot act, torture camps worldwide, and are viewed as the pariah of liberty. A defense budget that has no real limit.
The Truman Doctrine is also to blame, but the "threat" of Communism is null and void.
The eisenhower warning should have been heeded by all, yet remains a thing only remembered by people on internet message boards like ats.
