The US Is Slipping Into Historical Irrelevancy

Everybody wants to be king, or so the saying goes -
In less than 40 years India will overtake the US as the world’s second-largest trading nation, pushing today's superpower into third place and Europe in to the little leagues, according to a new report by Citi.
“According to our projections, world trade in goods and services will grow from $37 trillion in 2010 to $149 trillion in 2030 and $371 trillion in 2050,” Citigroup’s William Buiter and Ebrahim Rahbari wrote in a research note released on Thursday.
China is making it's presence known -
Japan's Defense Ministry said Thursday 11 Chinese warships were spotted in international waters off the country's southern island of Okinawa.

No territorial violations were claimed by Japan, but the movements are sensitive because Japan and China have a dispute over small islands in the East China Sea.

The Real Effect
I'm constantly surprised at the absolute historical ignorance demonstrated by most Americans in this day and age. To put it simply, there is such a disconnect between liberty, prosperity and their brains that they really think that any and all ideas are good ideas. Earth to the brain dead, there is a reason why the Soviet Union collapsed. Yet, like the child that never learns, once again we find him trying the same failed experiment again.

Make no mistake, the seeds to America's destruction have been sown and contrary to some thinking, it's not the gays that did this to us. No, we are all quite capable of digging our own grave thank you very much. For it would seem that the Creator of our world has set natural laws in place that we broke of our volition. We have starved people via our money printing. We have murdered in the name of "choice" and "safety". We have refused to recognize the order and like Icarus, we will collide.
Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around

Just want one thing

Just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled
And you're left with just a thing

Where's your crown, King Nothing?

There is no government that can solve this, no program which will redistribute righteousness. We must look deep and hard in the looking glass and reach in and each take our responsibilities and our rights back and use them in the manner in which they were intended. We must become the individuals that legends are made of. We must honor the order. Until we do that, there is nothing that can save us from the hell that we vigorously chose.
