I've devised a way, WIT ME BRAIN, that spells out how America can fall from the power that we are, just like how Rome once did. I'm not saying that it will happen in our lifetime, but we'd have to change things now before it gets too late.
If we keep heading down the same path we are, we will no longer be what we used to be. Our government will be a plutocracy while resembling a democracy. The rich will have the power. It almost seems this way anyways. Who are our politicians? The rich. Who tells them what to do? The companies via lobbyists, aka the rich.
The Republicans like supporting the rich getting richer, and they do it through the means of the common man telling them that they deserve all their money, and screw the rest of the people. The reason why some Communist dictators are still supported by the people is that they're supposed to be for "the little guy." Our Republicans are like their dictators in the sense that the average person thinks the same fiscal policies that the Republicans present are there to help them out. The only people that that helps is, in fact, the rich.
So what? So, the companies will cut costs as much as possible so they can make their own money. That will include shipping off jobs that they don't need done here, and in today's world, that's a lot, and it also means hiring illegals. Our unemployment will rise, and our economy will fall. When the economy falls, crime will prosper because that's just how it goes. The people in power won't really care, because they already have all their money, and they can still convince us that the republican way is the way to go.
Not to mention that we're becoming the asshats of the world. We will exhaust all of our allies; don't think that they HAVE to stay allies with us? why should they have our back after the shit we've been doing anyways?
Without our allies, and with our shitty economy, that leaves up for attack. Who knows what country may try to invade us, but if we lose our friends and allies, we're only one country (one country with a shitty economy) against, probably, many.
We need change.
