A hostile occupation of the U.S. would definitely fail horribly. The U.S. may expire it's funds, though, and collapse

i dont know about you, but most people i know, here in america, are self destructive.
So why not think that the country will self-destruct, if the people are already doing so on their own leisure time?

and the whole is only as good as it's parts.

alright, my guess would be self-destruction and anarchy, but ultimatly i really don't care. if it comes to the actual question "will america fall?" well duh eventually it willl just like everything else.

america will be, and is, playing the key roll in its own future demise. no external invasion is likely to be a significant factor. environmental reality and deliberate ignorance there of, are far more likely to do so. (the timetable though, is a complete roll of the dice) a time may relatively soon come, when anyone still alive, will have more immediate and personal concerns, then to give a dam, whether ANY, nation stands or falls.

i can tell you how long it won't last, and that is for ever.

i can also tell you that the hand the will fell it is not external, nor is it liberal.

that which pretends to call itself conservative is the rot at the root, and the process of distruction, well there have been processes of distruction and construction going on side by side from the very beginning, but in the last 3 decades, the process of deconstruction has surged ahead. citizens united is perhaps all but the final nail in the coffin, though the corps still shows deadly signs of life.

really today's america IS a zombie of the america i grew up in. which was neither consrvative nor christion, but a 50/50 mix in each case. mccarthyism forshadowed todays doom. hitler blamed the jews, mccarthy blamed the marxists, and today its the muslims who are being scapegoated. in evey instance it was those who were doing the scapegoating and pointing the fingers who were really to blame for everything they pointed their fingers of acusation at anyone who clung to honesty and logic.

I do feel that America as a country, as a government as well as its economical status will fall and is falling. I dont know that another country will take over however I do think that there are a select few of countries that could possibly take that position.
I think that America has gotten lazy and depend too much on foreign products, foreign manufacturing, always wanting someone else to do it for cheaper.
We have lost the motivation and that drive to provide for ourselves. If the jobs are not going over seas then they are being substituted with computers. Do people not realize that the population is growing not shrinking? More people means more people needing to do their part instead we give them ways to make excuses not to work and not to contribute. But thats a whole new soap box. Ultimately we will be our own downfall. We can stop it...but will we?

you've got it 2/3rds right, but makework isn't the answer. we're not only throwing away our own self sufficiency, but robbing the rest of the world of being able to keep and develop theirs.

clearly this IS an unstable situation, and one that isn't going to be solved the way hitler attempted to either. by making a vassle of the rest of the planet.

but the hard way isn't, as you seem to imply, the only way.
there's nothing wrong with keeping people from starving, that's one of the few good things governments are for, as long as they can.

but of course they can't for ever. you're right that there's no output without input, but there's nothing wrong with mechanically easing the burden. only with easing it by robbing someone somewhere else.
