Here's something to ponder or debate.
With our Nations' economy steadily declining, do you think it's possible in the very near future that America could slip to #2 (China obviously rising to 1) or even #3 economically?
While I think people place too much fear in this thought due to looming invasions or further structural drops, I think life could somewhat continue as "normal"....seemingly normal. But then perhaps could the state of the things invoke Americans to defect to other countries for fear of invasion or becoming more 3rd world? Granted, it would be pretty freaking hard to come on American soil, given our military power & the amount of arms per household.
I'm not going all Armageddon here and saying nukes are going to fly off and it's it's the end of the world. I personally don't see things ever getting that bad. But in the history of the world, no nation/country has ever remained #1 forever. At least not to my knowledge. I'm just concerned that perhaps the mentality of old (we're America, F@*&you, we will always win) may have overstayed it's welcome. In the 40-50's America was all muscle. Now I feel like we are Hulk Hogan and just a saggy bag of ass & steroids doing rent-a-center commercials, claiming we'll still kick your ass.
Look, I love my country, the men & women who fight for it and the freedom/rights I have. So please do not misconstrue my sentiments as Anti-American.
It's merely meant to discuss/debate.
