Nice read, but not made for the office (don't tell anybody...).

Hope to read this again tonight or tomorrow - at first glance it assumes a lot, however, with some of the current Political Trends (Democrats = Pussies and only wanting to secure their political careers, Republicans = Obstructionists and only wanting to secure their political careers), some of it could be guesses of the educated nature.

However, just because we are in decline doesn't mean we're going to fall off completely. I mean, take a look at the early 20th century, we were in a MASSIVE depression, but thanks to a War that decimated a significant part of the developed world - the United States kind of became a World leader by default. You never know what kind of random events can occur.

One thing I will have to say in regards to this, Is that Historically we have wars or Major "issues" 2 or more times a century.

1600 - Thirty Years' War
English Civil War
Great Plague

1700 - War of the Spanish Succession
Seven Years' War
American Revolution
Napoleon

1800 - War of 1812
Napoleon
Greek War of Independence
American Civil War
Crimean War ends
Spanish, American War
The Franco-Prussian War

1900 - WWI
The Russian Revolution
The Spanish Civil War
WWII
The Korean War
The Hungarian Revolution - many fear World War III
The Cuban missile crisis
The Vietnam War

ETC

My point is that anything will happen but its very likely some war/fighting/death will happen.

Oh look! Another doomsday article.

America was doomed in the 60s because the Soviet Union was going to nuke it.

America was doomed in the 70s because of the oil crisis and the loss of the Vietnam War.

America was doomed in the 80s because Japan was going to become the world`s global economic power.

America was doomed in the 90s because China was going to attack America.

America was doomed in the 2000s because of Islamic terrorism especially after the 9/11 attacks.

And now America is doomed in the 10s because politicians spend away all money. But politicians cannot destroy America because politicians are not America. And America is, at its root, non-political which is why politicians don`t like it anyway.

What is actually going on is political machines built up since the New Deal are imploding. This is why politicians keep spending countless money to give to unions to shore up their political power. But we no longer live in the Industrial Age, and unions will go the way of the dodo. Propaganda machines of the newspapers and television channels are falling away to the Internet and other information channels.

It is a Brave New World. But it is not a world without America. To the contrary, it is the opposite. China is not a healthy country. The European nations all have serious troubles. But the United States is actually doing pretty good (unless you live in California).

I would love to be wrong.

I want to live in a Utopia!

I am just saying be prepared, not doubtful.
and that History has proven that things will happen.
