Some people seem to believe that envisioning the United States of America calling it a wrap is an un-American exercise in scare tactics designed for shock value.
Those critics fail to understand or accept that all great nations and empires throughout history have all eventually ended, and the average duration of their greatness and dominance has been 200 years.
America is now some 227 years old.
On the other hand, American attitudes toward the uncomfortable subjects of uncontrolled violence, sexual deviations, and a callous contempt for life–clear signs of the moral, societal decay which have invariably presaged national collapse–are patently un-American and may very well be the harbingers of this nation’s fall into the abyss.
Thinking and writing about that apparent inevitability is clearly pro-American and represents nothing more than harsh realism.
Aside from us realists, there are others who may or may not think America is finished or soon will be.
By and large, they are the same people who have promoted our decay and believe that honest discussion of the causes of our decline is off limits since such discussion is somehow discriminatory and, well, un-American, as well as antithetical to their beliefs in so-called progressive governments and a radically reformist society.
Ironically, progressives and the topics they shun and demand the rest of us avoid debating are some of the prime causes of why America is inexorably sliding down history’s tubes and will be fortunate to be a shadow of her once-great self within a generation or so.
Not only has ominous handwriting long been on America’s wall strongly indicating we are in a steep descent from our former prominence on the world stage but many of those progressives have fostered policies that all but guarantee our decline and actually look forward to it.
They sincerely believe, like the reigning king of progressives, President Barack Hussein Obama, that there is nothing special about America and that our nation is no more exceptional or distinctive or noteworthy than any other country. And they are acting accordingly.
If anything, radical progressives, again like Obama, feel we have achieved our success and wealth and status as the lone superpower left standing by taking advantage of poorer nations, by sucking them dry of their natural resources, by chicanery, stealth, and intimidation.
(See Dinesh D’Souza’s extensively-documented The Roots of Obama’s Rage for details on the “progressive king’s” influences and motivations that reinforce that charge.)
Progressives feel the time is long overdue for America to get her comeuppance and not only share the wealth, an idea candidate Obama once publicly advanced, but to level the world’s playing field by effectively becoming one with Third World countries as recompense for our many past and ongoing “evils.”
This website is not intended for the uninformed, for those Rush Limbaugh refers to as “low information voters,” those citizens who have elected progressives over the years based on what progessives have told them and falsely promised them.
Frankly, there is little hope for that sad, ignorant lot.
Therefore, there is no need to detail here such news as the World Bank’s expectation that China will surpass the U.S. as the world’s biggest economy as early as this year and other wall handwritings showing America is rapidly slipping into the future.
Well-informed voters, conservative voters, are well aware of that chilling eventuality.
They are similarly familiar with the potentially catastrophic implications of failing to secure our borders, with former allies’ growing distrust and disrespect for our commander-in-chief, with a national economy still in the pits despite trillions wasted to resuscitate it, with literally hundreds of lies and deceptions Obama and his media have perpetrated on the American electorate, with how political correctness is transforming America into a nation more concerned with “social justice” rather than social fairness, with the disintegration of our public schools, with the insanity of unproven anthropogenic climate change, etc. etc. etc.
The list of threats to our survival as a free and prosperous nation is almost endless.
However, the most potent issues affecting America’s decline are issues that even informed, well-intentioned conservatives find difficult to accept as major contributors to our dissolution. The epidemic of unreported racial violence, gays seizing control of our schools and governments, and snuffing out millions of innocent, human lives by legalized abortion, are being ignored or excused.
Our constitutionally-guaranteed rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have been supplanted by unconstitutionally mindless tolerance, mindless political correctness, and legally mindless executions of our most defenseless and vulnerable.
As deadly serious as are economic stagnation, porous borders, the disintegration of our national prestige and authority, the failure of our educational system, and all the other problems we face, they all pale in comparison with America’s moral putrefaction.
