This is all in reality ridiculous. The only actual grief that China assuming the world currency and overtaking the USA would cause is from our own
internal grief in regards to scaling back militarily. Many are right, the USA will either be idiotic and choose war or common sense will prevail and
we would be better off.
1: North America has 2 wonderful things that will always leave us if our policies become sane a powerful and wealthy continent... Food and Water.
2: We have no natural enemies bordering Canada and Mexico, we waste all our money as global top dog on a topic we Never actually need to...war
3: We are in the middle of an energy revolution
4: Our population is relatively stable, certainly not growing to a degree that will cause harm like other areas of the world.
5: What we have wasted on being "top dog" leaves us with technological dominance for decades to come.
Yeah... it will suck, for a bit, then... we will HAVE to stop wasting 1.2 Trillion dollars on the military every year, work on eliminating WASTE, our
only 2 actual problems, the majority of the people don't actually care if our economy is no 1 in the world in FACT, it shouldn't be vs India with
1.2 Billion people or China with 1.5... the reality of this means we are working each of us as hard as five Chinese guys and MISERABLE to maintain
that position anyway.
Lets go back to worrying about going back to no 1 in education and health care, from somewhere in the range of 47.... Instead of no 1 in Military
spending, wars, and banking cartels...
If this last 20 years has taught us anything, a decent sized military and a handful of Nukes is enough to keep any nation from invading you, Just ask
North korea... around a dozen Carrier battle groups a fleet of Nuclear subs, a massive military, most advanced equipment on the planet... mainly
useless if your opponent can wax La and Seattle before being vaporized, makes a fight worthless... same applies to us, we could scale back by 3/4 of a
Trillion a year and no one would dare screw around, likewise... we could knock another 3/4 of a Trillion off our budget via eliminating
Every other nation has survived not being the world currency lol, nor world police... in fact roughly 40-50 of them are doing it with a SUPERIOR
quality of life, less violence, better health care and better overall happiness index than us...
