is America destined to fall as all empires have grown and fallen? what will be the cause and why is there nothing being done about it?
Hanspete

Con

If America remains headed in the direction it is then we will collapse, but I believe that the people of my great country will right the direction we are going in and restore this country to the glory shown under Ronald Reagan.

I believe that America will not fall, because people will reawaken to the chaos they have allowed to happen and will say enough is enough. First off America is not an Empire, we have no overseas colonies and no ethnocentric principles in our current form. The only way America will collapse is by the ignorance of the governed, but I don't believe that the governed will remain ignorant any longer. Why is there nothing being done about it, here's why. We who believe in the greatness of America don't have the national power to help restore it, we have it on most state levels and even more municipalities. We will restore America and America will not fall.

The only thing that will curtail a collapse is to get rid of democrats and RINO"s. And to do that we need to get rid of the freeloader society that has permeated America.

Not disagreeing, just saying that johnson was the one who enacted it, and yes rino's are very responsible for this as well.

That's just because he was killed. It still had his DNA all over it. He was still bad for the country, as is all democrats.And all RINO's. Just my opinion.

One side point. Kennedy is responsible for out $100,000,000,000,000.00 unfunded liabilities.Most of that is directly laid at the feet of public unions. Even FDR said that was a bad idea. But that weazle Kennedy opened the door for them.Because he knew that they would vote democrat.

If Kennedy was all those things then maybe he was just half as bad for America than Obama is.Government should do nothing about healthcare but enforce the law in lawsuits.And the democrats are all for a reduced military, that is why we get into wars with them in charge. Woodrow Wilson. Roosevelt, Johnson. That three major wars in the last century. Korea was the only one started when a republican was president.

Bush retaliated for an attack on America because clinton refused to capture bin ladin.And bush appeared weak.Peace through strength is the only formula for peace.And democrats do not put off they are strong. Their overwhelming contribution is turning us into a freeloader society. And that will collapse any peoples.

If you have ever read the book legend i believe that's where we are headed. Most likely we will be split into to parts of the United States and may be put into districts and one day we will destroy ourselves from the inside out.

A kennedy democrat is a democrat who believes that tax cuts are acceptable, that government should do things about healthcare, not as far as obama went about half that, and that the u.s. does need a military but it should be used to promote peace, not fight in wars unless necessary. That is what is commonly considered a kennedy democrat.
