    I concur but I do not see it happening.

    In general Americans are fat, lazy, and ignorant.

    Then again what do you expect people to think when 40% of Americans don't believe in evolution but that the Earth is 6,000 years old.

    China and the EU are both world economic powers. They are not true world powers in that they cannot effectively project force outaide their region. Only the US can do that. Both are militarily vulnerable and unable to defed those vulnerabilities.

    My prediction is that it will (in a sense) fall, and then rebuild. We are on an unsustainable path to self-destruction, but will have what it takes to rise again. I don't know if there will be another internal war, or if our financial situation will be our undoing, but I do expect it will happen. Then again, I'm no psychic.

    Now, America isn't what it once was. We are viewed as fat, lazy, and ignorant (at least by the Aussies and Brits I talk to)And what is their source of information? Not that I agree or disagree with them..

    We have a government that loves wasting money. Debatable, but not a fact. We have a tax code that robs the winners to feed the losers. In your opinion,only Hell, we babble about freedom, but a woman can't sell her body and a man can't smoke a little mary jane.

    Will there be another civil war? The progressives (thieves) vs. the capitalists/conservatives?


    Well, I forgot to add the Poll and you apparently can't after posting, so just state your opinion.
    Not all is peaches and cream in America
    but this adds to people being fat.....
    We have many problems, there are many improvements that are necessary to achieve "peaches and cream".
    And the conservatives are perfect?
    Read some history, stay away from Fox.
    And, those who really think that we have an empire are delusional.

    Lest we forget, our military, the world's mightiest was out-done by Islamic terrorists with balls and box-cutters.
    Islam seems to be the next "empire" - as long as fear and ignorance prevail.....
