American Decline

http://www.politico.com/politico44/2012/12/intelligence-community-us-out-as-sole-superpower-by-151519.html

There is a prediction that the USA will no longer be the sole superpower sometimes in the next few years. There are several reasons for this and they are all our fault.  The United States has done a terrible job of preventing potential enemies from gaining power.  Our State Department and our Department of Commerce have failed to restrain the economic and military power of the Communist Chinese.

The US has no economic policy worthy of the name.  We have had an energy crisis since the early 1970's.  Since that time we have built nearly no power plants and no significant nuclear energy plants.  We need domestic energy sources, we should have already weaned ourselves from Middle East oil.

We have had millions of American jobs go overseas.  We have millions of American without jobs and yet, we permit millions of illegal aliens to enter and stay in the nation.  We have brought the downfall on ourselves and we have no one else to blame for our own destruction; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
