As I've always said, if there is an article calling for the downfall of the US...it'll be on DU. (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x9681809)

Original message Is the American Dream Over?


America has long been a country of limitless possibility. But the dream has now become a nightmare for many. The US is now realizing just how fragile its success has become -- and how bitter its reality. Should the superpower not find a way out of crisis, it could spell trouble ahead for the global economy. By SPIEGEL Staff

Americans have lived beyond their means for decades. It was a culture long defined by a mantra of entitlement (and what Party pushes that???), one that promised opportunities for all while ignoring the risks(Bullshit, but go on...). Relentless and seemingly unstoppable upward mobility was the secular religion of the United States. Alan Greenspan, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve, established the so-called ownership society, while Congress and the White House helped free it of the constraints of laws and regulations.

The United States is a confused and fearful country in 2010.(Really? Only to you Libtard dipshits.) American companies are still world-class, but today Apple and Coca-Cola, Google and Microsoft are investing in Asia, where labor is cheap and markets are growing, and hardly at all in the United States. Some 47 percent of Americans don't believe that the America Dream is still realistic.

The Desperate States of America are loud and distressed. The country has always been a little paranoid, but now it's also despondent, hopeless and pessimistic. (Hey you fucking a-hole...Fuck You. I suppose that's why people are always trying to get in here...) Americans have always believed in the country's capacity for regeneration, that a new awakening is possible at any time. Now, 63 percent of Americans don't believe that they will be able to maintain their current standard of living. (Kiss My Ass)

And if America is indeed on the downward slope, it will have consequences for the global economy and the political world order.

Oh Boy!

DU is just a bundle of joy these days :rolleyes:

No wonder these keep losing elections; if I wanted to hear a bunch of goofs in throngs of depression and misery, I'd go and hang out in cheap tavern and listen to drunks cry into their beers. At least I'd know they'll normal in the morning.
