    What's any of that got to do with the United States? Everyone who's not dead knows the United States is not an empire and it's people have no aspirations for such.

    That being said, the republic of the United States died when the Seventeenth Amendment was ratified. And it's been all downhill since the Wilson Administration and the infestation of the Progressives.

This has been a problem with every empire.
    Just cuious, but how much did you feed the carrier pigeons take this post of yours to the Posting Center?

    Nah. All the United States has to do is stop electing Progressives and socialists and start electing Americans again, men and women who both respect and understand the Constitution and who understand that freedom, not dependency, is the fount of American exceptionalism and greatness.

    And a responsible American government interested in the preservation of American liberty won't allow that to happen.

    No, just in abeyance, while the United States struggles with the infestation of socialists and Progressives who are trying to implement "Destroy America" policies that everyone else in the world was fleeing to America to escape from.

    Restore the American dedication to "liberty and justice for all" (and that includes white victims of black race criminals, Mr. Obama), and the totally worthless respect of the inferior nations will be restored.

    If anyone wants it.

    MOST importantly, the apeasement politicians keep telling people that someone will take care of them, so when a plane load of Americans were skyjacked by primitive with razor blades, those people sat back in their seats and followed the Someone Else's Problem Rule: Do nothing, government will fix it.

    Well, the government isn't putting those people back together, are they?

    Can you imagine a plane load of men and women from 1900 being held hostage by five thugs with itty-bitty box cutters?

    The United States has to change it's culture back to one tha grows men. Not all fighting is bad, and practice makes perfect. So, since violence most certainly DOES settle some things, it's time to restore a culture where fighting is respected. So you liberals are going to have to stop trying to turn little boys into little girls.

    Little boys who draw pictures of soldiers carrying guns are NORMAL little boys. Adult teachers to freak out and try to suspend little boys who draw pictures of soldiers carrying guns are ABNORMAL SICK little wannabe girls who have a complex because their brother put a frog under their sheets.

    China's demographics indidate that she is going to get old before she can become a world-spanning empire. India is going to take her place in the latter half of the 21st Century as the Big Asian Power. the EU is teetering on the edge and in no position to replace the US as the dominant power; and Brazil is overrated.

    the US will remain as the biggest power in the world for some time, however, whether or not one is a superpower in fact is whether or not one is willing to be. in that regards, thanks to our current administration, we are already choosing to become less relevant.


    VERY well stated, succinctly and clearly.

    Actually, that would be the present "form of government". The U.S. gets a new government with every change of occupancy at the White House...

    And where did he get that number of 225 years for governments to last?!?!? I call BS on that claim...
