Will it fall? Can it fall? Can other nations dictate to the United States? Do other nations have enough political power to weaken the US? Does America own the whole world through the IMF and World Bank? Or is America a sovereign nation competing for resources around the world as the media suggests? Will the Euro replace the Dollar as the leading reserve currency? Can there be two equal but seperate reserve currencies? Is the "decline" of the Dollar a sign of the end or a part of a bigger plan? Is outsourcing a way of "selling us out" or a way of creating more secure and higher paying skill-based jobs? Does the rest of the world need us more than we need them, or vice-versa? Can other leading nations afford for the US to fail? Is the US the figure-head of a global machine or is there an "US vs. Them" struggle that must come to an end? Alot of questions, I know. Answer some, answer them all... answer none; this thread is for sharing your ideas on the nature of the current and future role of the American Empire.
