I think most people here have heard the saying "Fall of the Roman Empire" or "Babylon is Falling" of course referring to an overly decadent and corrupt society collapsing.

How do you think this applies to America?

We're becoming more and more split in terms of not only political views but also moral views. I think it goes without saying that our politicians left and right are seeking personal benefit rather than greater good, our educational system is failing, we are more materialistic and wasteful than ever, like the romans, our lines a stretched thin in places where they shouldn't be, and we our loosing our basic rights ie; right to privacy

A more recent story on this is the supreme court ruling it OK for a police officer to pull you over and search your car without probable cause.

So what is in this country's future

Collapse or Reformation?

because if our country continues in this path, than undoubtedly bad things lie ahead.

This is all you need to know. America will colapse into a dark pit called Anarchy. There are only two ways it can go, it will either be peaceful and everyone pulls their own weight ( cobverting back to simpler times), or it will be complete chaos. Just be sure you are ready for the chaos.

Someone needs to leave the moutain militia every once in a while and see the real world. America will not collapse into a pit of anarchy. Right now we'll either become a repressed police state (well, continue to be one) or one that finally gets its shit together and starts looking out for the people's well being.

With all due respect, get ur head out of that black hole on your hind side and look around. What do you see? Violence, poverty, and greed are three good words for describing America.

Been listening to that new megadeth album much? What yousaid pretty much sums up the entire album. But me, I say we have at least 50 years left. 100-150 at most.

People's well being =/= getting shit together. The USA is nowhere near ready to start having a cohesive mesh of people supporting one another. There is too much corruption in the current social service programs that allow for people to leech and no longer have individual responsibility, OR it rewards stupid decisions.
