How it ends is all there in the history books. Why? We are all human believe it or not, despite what all the sociopaths on the internet would have you believe, and we all fall prey to the same age old problems that simply repeat. Over and over. Over and over.

Of course the founding fathers in their true genius knew this very well and designed a system that could withstand all that in very simple elegance.

About 40 years ago we decided to hell with all that and began the erosion of our system. Then the Supreme Court finished the job by meddling in elections in 2010 and that was the end of the protections they gave us.

Every thing since has been the result of all that and our country is no longer bound by the protections the founders and their spiritual descendents gave us. We now follow the path of all large empires/powers that came before us.

Despite what you learned in world history 101, almost all world superpowers ended by the same factors and in the same way. There is no single great battle or war, that's history for simpletons as that's all that they can understand, singular points in time. The way things end are a gradual but steady flow of events.

You see almost the same things already having taken root here.

For those interested do some reading, The similarities to what you see around you and history and fascinating. To be living in history and to know what so many ppl before us were going through is eye opening and makes me feel as if I'm physically touching history.

For the rest of you, I'm sure you can google some idiotic article that fits your belief system. For the vast majority of you, it's better to scroll past here and talk about ww3.

Going back to the first paragraph of this post, Sinclair Lewis comes to mind doesn't he. What's this guy taking about? quick google it... You cannot escape human nature. The founding fathers created a buffer for us. When we removed that buffer that was the end.
It's good to see you back and posting. I was going to cut to the chase and post an image of The History of the Decline and Fall of The Roman Empire. I'd love for everyone to post their own, "We are Here" opinion based on the entire tome.
