The Fall of the United States of America
We have all heard the story of how Rome fell while Nero fiddled; no one really knows if that is exactly the truth but it’s a great analogy that represents how the leaders of a nation are sitting idly by as that nation crumbles and implodes upon itself.
According to The History Channel:
In the late fourth century, the Western Roman Empire crumbled after a nearly 500-year run as the world’s greatest superpower. Historians have blamed the collapse on hundreds of different factors ranging from military failures and crippling taxation to natural disasters and even climate change. SOURCE
The following is a list of the 8 reasons Rome fell; I believe you’ll see much similarity in the plight of Rome and what is happening today, right here in the United States.
1. Invasions by Barbarian tribes
I wouldn’t necessarily call them *Barbarian tribes* but in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s this nation was opened up to a great migration of immigrants from foreign lands; mostly Europe, but certainly there were immigrants from all over the earth that came to America for the freedoms we offered, for the chance to start a new life as an American, to raise their families as Americans and to become legal residents of this nation.
2. Economic troubles and overreliance on slave labor
Yes, sadly the United States did once rely on slave labor to build this nation. Thank God that practice ended and slaves were given their freedom, but today we have a NEW kind of slavery; the working population of America.
American labor works their hearts and souls out to support their families and pay their taxes, those taxes are used, in part, to support approximately 50% of this nation that has never worked, never EARNED a penny, these slugs of humanity exist on the tax dollars paid to the government by the NEW SLAVES, the America worker.
3. The rise of the Eastern Empire
In this day and time I can only relate *The Eastern Empire* to being Russia and/or China, possibly with Arab and Persian powers thrown in for good measure.
4. Overexpansion and military overspending
Overexpansion; maybe not so much, but there has certainly been a few attempts at nation building in the not so distant past.
Military overspending; we DO spend a great deal of TAX dollars on the military but if spent correctly and used wisely that is not so much an expense as it is an investment. The current administration may well be using military funding as a personal *slush fund*, we all know Obama hates the military and it is doubtful, at least in MY mind, that he is overspending to care for our troops, past and present.
5. Government corruption and political instability
Government corruption; I don’t even know where to begin unless I plan on writing a novel, and I’m not.
Political instability; simply look at politics from recent years, recent weeks even. The GOP is not trusted by Conservatives, many rank and file GOP members don’t trust their own Party. The GOP fights with the TEA Party, the TEA Party fights with the GOP, both make at least some attempt to fight the Democrats and all the while the nation suffers under the hands of ALL Parties.
6. The arrival of the Huns and the migration of the Barbarian tribes
I don’t know what to relate to *The Huns* but the migration of the Barbarian tribes is an easy one; look at the borders of this nation, the lack of immigration law enforcement and the recently signed Obama version of amnesty, at least the first forced version.
I believe there are other versions waiting in the wings.
7. Christianity and the loss of traditional values
Judeo-Christian beliefs built this nation, Islam, no matter what Barack Hussein Obama believes, had nothing to do with the birth or success of America.
The decline in Christianity in America is partially the fault of America itself.
Amendment I - Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
The Bill of Rights, by its own wording, has allowed this land to be over-run by Muslims, Buddhists, atheists and who knows what other religions or affiliations. In its original inception, long before Political Correctness became the new *bible*, the First Amendment was sacrosanct and easily understood, today the Constitution is, according to those that would bring this nation down, merely an outdated piece of paper that is open to interpretation and needs to done away with.
8. Weakening of the Roman legions
Weakening of the military, less troops, relying on technology to protect the USA, that is the weakening of the Legions today.
In addition to that; look at the way the Police in America are constantly degraded, subjected to the most inane rules and regulations, look at how many Americans hate Law Enforcement, right up until the time comes when they NEED the help of Law Officers.
In my mind the similarities are frightening, The Roman Empire was brought down by lust, greed, mismanagement, corruption and an invasion of illegals.
Can the American nation be saved from that fate or is it already too late?
