How long do you think the US will be around?

Honesty, and without being snarky, do you think the US is a country that will last? Oh, and this is not a post that I wish to turn into an Obama-bashing post.

  • “From bondage to spiritual faith;
    From spiritual faith to great courage;
    From courage to liberty;
    From liberty to abundance;
    From abundance to complacency;
    From complacency to apathy;
    From apathy to dependence;
    From dependence back into bondage.”

    This is atributed to Alexander Tytler, an eitghteenth century historian. Many historians believe we are in the apathy to dependance stage. With the majority of the country paying no attention and so many who are paying very little and voting for a dependant state, I would say the end is near.

  • Being that you guys have more military than anyone else on the planet, I think you'll be around for a good long while.

  • I agree with Freela. We won't be around forever and ever (even Rome fell eventually), but since we're so obviously dedicated to being the biggest and the best, we'll be around for awhile.

  • My dh and I were talking about this this morning. We wondered what would happen if most states became angry over something like this healthcare bill, would the union dissolve? Would we all just become independent states? Could happen eventually, idk when though.
