Nothing lasts forever.  No nation is on top forever.  Look at the Roman empire, what are they doing now?  The US has not been #1 in a lot of categories for a while.  It may still be around but it won't be as powerful as it once was.

No, I do not.  I feel we are a great country but as with everything, we need to work to improve.

No -.- They've said the same thing numerous times throughout our very short history.  We still have one of, if not the, most powerful, organized military in the world.  That in itself is enough to warrant our existence for the time being.  We clearly have problems in the country, as every nation and every empire (if you wish to consider the US an empire) always has.  The only people who think it's coming to an end are the people who want it to come to an end, for whatever reason...sadly a number of them are in this country.

I believe the USA will always be on top.  I would never live anywhere else on this planet.

Top of what?  Highest military spending and most obese people?

I don't believe America will come to an end, at least not in our foreseeable future. We will go through many changes. We really need to adapt because of the globalization all the countries have gone through in the past 2 decades.

First we need to define what is America. I believe that America is about opportunities, democracy, organization, has law and order, a basic Constitution and several other factors for which to define this country I won't delve into for now.

So long as most of those qualities are in place, America isn't going anywhere.

We may go through outsourcing, challenging educational standards, drug wars and addictions, international policing, humanity issues and some other things like that, but the backbone of this country is still the same as it has been for the past couple hundred years. FREEDOM of speech, universal rights for all registered citizens, an organized honest financial system (for the most part ><) an the ability to utilize all the resources it takes to start from nothing in this country and literally overnight to create honest fortunes.

Any other country will have systems in place we wouldn't like, just like we have some here we don't like, (ie monitoring of our emails etc) but for fu*%& sake, there have to be some concessions on our part because of the complexity of the world today and the unbelievable amount of despots out there wanting to promote chaos and disorder, so we will need some sacrifices along the way to ensure our forefathers dream will live on for as long as we work to make it to.

Ok enough rambling  :BangHead: :BangHead:

not so much the country itself, but our freedoms are sure going down the drain, freedoms that are bad, as far as the country moving in a bad direction, as opposed to the freedoms we were founded on. :'(

Not at all. xD
Some girl kept trying to convince me that the dollar would soon be worth nothing and we'd soon be using a currency called the "amero." I tried to tell her that this was not true but she insisted because, "I saw it on a video on youtube!!"
My faith in humanity is coming to an end, but I don't think the US is anytime soon.

I myself am a marine wife and i don't see this nation coming to an end anytime soon. But with Obama in office we are gonna have some problems. I mean he just got a dang Noble Peace Prize and he hasn't done ANYTHING. It's people that think he is a freaking King that are ruining this country. Yes he is the first black president but i think it is funny they have yet to show us his birth certificate or that he is even a American Born citizen (being that is the only way to be president). I saw a clip on the news the other day where children where singing praise songs to him. Our country is definitely in some trouble but I don't think that it will end. I am just afraid that Obama is gonna go way to far with this and we are gonna have another JFK incident.

As for the huge military spending...that money has gone to other countries not us. My husband is a mechanic in the Marines and their budget for his shop for a quarter is less than a cost of an engine. In one week they spend more than their budget. And you should be proud to live in this country where we are free and we have people SACRIFICE their lives so that we and our children can live a great life.

The reasons he received it were clearly outlined by the committee that chose him.

The award has been a joke and meant nothing for some time now.  Yasser Arafat and Al Gore won it for *bleep*'s sake...it's just something else for Fox News to orgasm over.

What other countries does it go to?

I am proud.  I'm proud enough to recognize the improvements that need to be made in order for this country to retain its position at the top.

I guess I must not see it or I missed something, but what freedoms are going down the drain?
