    What is your level of optimism concerning the future of the United States of America?

    Many factors affect one's outlook about various things - history, current events, politics, religion, media, family & friends, personal character traits, life experiences, environment, upbringing, education, etc. etc. etc.

    Just curious. Nothing ulterior, just curiosity.

    What is your outlook re the future of the United States of America - and maybe why?

    It's against my nature but, given the history of other countries that have traveled down the same road we're on...very pessimistic.

    This country has survived a civil war, a war of independance, and many many other challenges. It will survive this current fad of Progressivism, and will continue to be the place where men and women can pursue their dreams.

    I live in "anticipation of a civil war". Any optimism. I do not believe, even, that healthy forces in the country will win.

    I'm in the "somewhat pessimistic" column, due to our long term economic outlook and our government debt.

    Chances are my opinion means very little here given the fact that I am new to america but overall I think things are going well and not nearly as bad as people make it out to be at least from an immigrants prospective

    I think feminism has done irreputable damage. It has destroyed the family and destabalized society. I think we will be in for a rude awakening within the next 2 generations.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Desabalized Society? I'm not from the USA I recently moved here but I am curious why you believe that. I though feminism movement was to be able to vote and work with the same wages as men... I don't know how that could destroy the family lifestyle.... could you eleborate ?
