Every empire has fallen from the weight of its own power and corruption. Americans don't see this.
we could be the next roman empire.
hope there isnt any lead in our pipes.
Maybe IBM can help? It's all about the infrastructure...
Yes, you will be crushed by a horde of drunken barbarians!
ahem, on topic, I think that everytime empires fall, new empires grow out of their ashes.
Eh, whatever happens, happens.
America is the Roman Empire right now, right before the collapse.
I don't want to be doom and gloom, but I see where the world is heading. All I have to do is look at our debts and deficits, the dollar being at an all-time low, the current geo-political situation and the out-of-control government spending that is taking place. This country is on the verge of bankruptcy.
Americans have no idea what the coming years have in store for them.
Yeah, it's all just a matter of time. We had a pretty good run though. However, I wouldn't mind seeing this administration topple.
Well, it's all been planned to be this way... but I'll stop there before I am criticised of being a "conspiracy theorist."
We owe almost all our debts to our own citizens though, in the form of bonds...
The government doesn't even really have to pay that back.
As Hegel once said,
I think the collapse of the current American empire will lead to a new, more, virtuous empire arising out of its ashes... one that will lead us to the end of history.
I am already criticizing you of being a "conspiracy theorist". its not because of this thread alone
No. We owe most of our debt to other countries, many of whom are dropping the dollar in favor of more stable currency, such as the Euro.
As it is, we are currently importing 2.5 billion daily from foreign countries. I wonder how many Americans know that.
No. It will lead to world government, which is what they have planned.
From what I know, the Dollar is more stable than the Euro.
What planet have you been living on?
The dollar keeps dropping why the Euro keeps going up.
You come off as you have all the answers laying in front of you and no one else can grasp it. You were just generalizing, right?
You freakin Bin Laden lover! Die scum!
World Government=Stability and Peace.
