Here is what America is like in 2021

Recommended Posts

AMERICA IN 2021 IS A NATION ON THE BRINK OF DISASTER.

 

The national debt has ballooned to the point where the US is no longer reasonably able to repay it, and is currently in desperate negotiations with the governments of China, Japan, the UK, France and others to try to work it off. The economy that has stagnated and receded for over a decade now goes into a sharp decline as the international value of the US dollar plummets.

 

Her military is back on the draft to support the ongoing conflicts in Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia. Young soldiers, generally recruited from the working class, are becoming heavily anti-war and anti-business, as they begin to see the political system of the country as one in which they are victimized by the rich.

 

Every election since 2008 has been defined by an anti-war sentiment in the general public. When the people thought that the Democrats would release them from war, they voted for the Democrats; when they thought the Republicans would, they voted for the Republicans. The general public's belief in the two-party system, already fragile in a nation where most people do not think their representatives actually represent them, is declining rapidly. Mass rallies and protests rival those of the Vietnam era in size and scope. In older days, distaste of the two-party system lead to massive voter apathy, but today the people are too frightened of being drafted or having their loved ones drafted to simply sit at home. Small political parties, generally left-wing, are gaining more and more political traction as the neoliberal two-party system earns the ire of the broad public.

Sadly, I believe LoF's first paragraph is dead on. Maybe we can spend ANOTHER TRILLION dollars trying to figure it out, cause, you know, our decendants will be the chumps that pay the price.

That is exactly what Alf Landon said about Social Security. We are still here 70 years later.

Marxist fan fiction?
"Oh, Marx, Marx..." Engels moaned, reclining back in his chair. "Don't stop."

 

Smiling up at Engels, Marx pulled his head back and said, "one man is superior to another physically, or mentally, and supplies more labor in the same time, or can labor for a longer time; and labor, to serve as a measure, must be defined by its duration or intensity."

I take it back.

America can't possibly afford something every other tiny country has no trouble with. Why? Because it's the greatest country in the world.

 

 

Engage your brain. It much easier to pay for something for 30 million people who have the highest taxes in the world then it is to pay for 300 million people with one of the lowest taxes in the free world.

True dat. Im just hoping everything doesnt go to hell before my daughter gets a chance to enjoy our once great country. Unfortunately, her kids will probably live in the third world dump that our country is becoming.

No, her children will get the chance to live in the glorious Socialist Republic of America, the world's greatest workers' state.

That is without doubt the most revolting concoction you've ever foisted on us. Although I admit it made me laugh.

With all of his nuttiness, one of the nations I can see rising from the US divided corpse would be a heavily socialistic nation.
There will never be a "US divided corpse," we are one people and one nation. We might lose Alaska and Hawai'i simply to geo-political concerns, but the lower 48 will be forever united. There are many ethnic groups within our nation, but we are all Americans. Edited by Cycloneman
I don't post if I don't have anything to say, which I guess makes me better than the rest of your so-called "community." 8)

We are divided by irreconcilable ideological differences on many issues. Equal rights for Homosexuals, Abortion, Immigration Reform, Health care, issues on education, and so forth and so on. These schisms will tear our country apart. Civil war will not come because of ethnicity or by a cluttering of states, but due to our ideological differences that swarms in every population.
