What You Should Know / January 4, 2010

america decline2 -- About the first decade of what was to be the Second American Century, the pessimists have been proven right. According to the International Monetary Fund, the United States began the century producing 32 percent of the world's gross domestic product. We ended the decade producing 24 percent. No nation in modern history, save for the late Soviet Union, has seen so precipitous a decline in relative power in a single decade.

    well hell we just have to start comparing based on weight / capita.

    That article is by Pat Buchanan. Reading it, I was amazed to see that it sounded somewhat reasonable and even found myself agreeing with parts of it.

    Then, I scrolled down to the comments. Scary. Even agreeing largely on what the problems are, the modern so-called conservatives seem to have a special talent for picking the most bass-ackwards, completely wrong, and even more damaging solutions.

    I’m quite happy with our nation’s impending collapse. But it’s wrong to compare what happened to the Soviet Union to what’s happening here. The Russian people didn’t vote for wars in Asia or tax cuts for the rich. The long suffering Russian sovoks are blameless. Also the Russian women could beat our “women” in pretty much every category, in spite of glaring poverty: grace, beauty, intelligence, elegance, fashion, everything. What the fuck are those things in the photo?

    Gore Vidal always fancied Pat Buchanan. Gore liked his stance on foreign politics (“Let them kill each other”) but bemoaned Buchanan’s mistaken belief that the U.S. was founded on Christian principles. Nice to see that Buchanan and Vidal can agree that America is in decline. Maybe there is something to this “bi-partisan” crap after all.

    We are sold-out. Of that there is no doubt and Buchanan’s assertion that “we are history” is pure Faith-Based Conservative Republican BULLSHIT.

    The lies, the murdering the destruction of American Civil Liberties effected on the Conservative Republican watch are now home to roost and Americans are suffering, really suffering as in the last Great Depression that was FED, Wall Street and Banking greed driven. Clinton opened the door with the destruction of Glass-Steagall and the ignorant George W. Bush took a budget surplus and turned it into the largest deficit in history, mortgaged the United States to China in the process and sold out Americans with his lies and war mongering.

    Bring these Bastards to justice. Where are the trials for these criminals?

    America’s decline is inevitable. Most of the engineering works are currently done by chinese and indians. The whole family system of America is on the brink of extinction, thanks to the feminist policies. It is extremely difficult for a country with moral failure to rise. No measures taken by government can compensate for lack of moral and ethical values.
