Has the US become too big?

We all know the story about how the Dinosaurs got to big to carry their own weight and sustain themselves, to become eventually extinct.

Since the 9/11 tragedy things which i have noticed are
terrorism growing
exotic viral strains
Genetically modifed foods
threats from middle east region
weapons of mass destruction
Threats from North Korea
Civlian Bombings
Controlled Media
Kill switches in internet
Collapsing Economies
Populations aging
Industries Collasping
false flags

Are, these all attributes and signs that the US like the Dinosaurs has hit the critical mass line, where the greatest threat to its own survival becomes itself?

What do you peoples thinks?

These are all things that have been around well before 9/11 and were thought of far earlier.

It's a part of the grand thought experiment that is humanity.

As far as "too-big-to-handle", I think looking at consumption and production rates in the economy are a good indicator. Just like large stars, countries that consume vast amounts of fuel (Resources) at higher rates, generally, will fall earlier, no? There always needs to be proper distribution and balance, along with the idea of sustaining and preserving the long term.

No, but the government has become WAY too big

Too big? No, I think often times that the US tries to do too much though. A better question would be if you were to ask is if "The US is too powerful?"
