Are we witnessing the fall of the American Empire?

  • We are indeed

    As someone who was born and raised in America and is now growing old in this same nation, I think that it is safe to say that we are indeed witnessing the fall of the American empire. We are no longer anywhere near as dominant as we used to be.

  • Yes, but it can be fixed.

    We are witnessing the fall of the American Empire, but there is still a chance for it to be saved as long as the American people open their eyes to see what is going on in the government. The people need to say that enough is enough and get the President out of office. The government is limiting the rights of the American people, which were set up by our founding fathers. The people had the right to tell the President that they do not want him in office anymore, but according to Mr. Obama, now they do not. Any words against or protests made near the President or anywhere near Secret Service agents can result in the one saying or doing the protesting to go to jail. They will be tried as a terrorist. If this is not the beginning of the American Empire falling, I would hate to see what it would look like.

  • We'll get past it.

    No, we are not witnessing the fall of the American Empire. I think that while the economy is in a bad place right now, that it is not permanent. Eventually, we'll get past it. Moreover, the United States is still a huge superpower. A superpower like that does not just fall.

  • The Empire Is Not Falling

    We are not witnessing the fall of America. The country is just in a rough spot right now. America will get out of this tough spot just as we have done in the past. This country has strong citizens and leader. We might be down but we are not out.

Frankly, this sort of discussion is not helping the world's view of the American's as a self-centered, ignorant people by them referring to themselves as 'an Empire'

If you understood who is pulling all the strings since 1913 you could NOT say the USA is not an empire.
Blind thinking will get you a big surprise as you awaken and find nothing you thought was real , is.
