5 years if another Katrina happens.

10 if not.

Either way, our way of life is dying a slow death.

150 years until a societal collapse and rebuild for another republic.

I had been saying 15 years +/-5 but after this?
I'd take a few years off of that. Most Sheeple, Hell, alot of the guys here, don't appreciate the significance of this event. We'll see. If it starts to spiral out of control look out. Maybe they can get hold of things but I have no faith in our gov't be able to do so. It ha degenerated into a montrous behemoth capable only of maintaining its own power.

Hopefully very soon it will be time to cleanse our nation of its domestic enemies.

As for present conditions I suggest these people pick up an American history book… things have been FAR worse. They need to ask their grandparents or I suspect in most cases their great-grandparent about the Great depression.

Won't be a collapse. Just a conversion to a total socialistic state. The rate of change is accelerating. If you are paying attention you can see that every year now is considerably worse than the last. If you are fifty years old or younger get used to the idea of living as a serf.

But then again take a good hard look at the “inner cities” of the mid 1800s… child slave labor, child sweet shops, childern bought and sold, children just left to fend for themselves by their parents. This is not talked about much but it did happen. I am not talking about the South but Northern industrial cities where much of life and moral values (or lack of) was grim.

Dyslectics Untie.

Oil supplies will be fine in 50 years... the market will take care of that. High prices are incentives for new production, alternatives (which there are plenty} of and new technology.

The Roman Empire Fell.....
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 2:58:09 PM EDT
The republic will fall within 10 years. We are on our way out! Whether you want to believe it or not that's your ouwn business. Since WWII America has made its living off of the backs of nations that we had both taken advantage of, or exstorted from. Well, for the most part we have just about taken advantage of every third world nation on earth. So in turn our capitalist gain will soon be on the decline especially with technology seepining out of our borders to other nations, such as China, and most of asia. What will come from this is less employment opertinities and a rising poor class. Corporations will become more and more of policy makers both domesticly and internationally. Now we all know when the poor class becomes more of a majority, more civil rights will be abolished.
If you really want to understand how it truely works do a complete history review of the Roman Empire post Agustus Ceaser. It reads just like a fucking playbook for any modern empires collapse. Especially play close attention to the Praetorian Guards assisstance in helpng rome with its complete demise.
The main problem with civil wars in Rome is that the civilians always lost, so fellow gunmen that is not an option for us.

Hey fuck nut! I never said I hated america the only reason for saying that is because to let you know that the good times in this country are over.

I may not agree with all of it but for the most part readytorock is on to something. The parallels between our Republic and the Roman Empire are astounding.

A civil war then and now though are 2 very differnt things. The reason for that? Guns. They are what made liberty possible. Next time those of you see the saying,

"God made men, Sam Colt made the equal."

Maybe you will understand the difference between then and now.

Hopefully not in my lifetime... It would be sad to have to fight our own people again (ONE civil war was bad enough), and you know the rebels WILL loose even worse this time....

It's just been a while since we've had a disaster near-totally destroy a city, plus the ineptitude of the local/state authorities combined to make a once-in-a-lifetime mess...

Perspective guys, perspective...

P.S. As you all know, I am of the type who takes the 'and domestic' part of my oath as seriously as the 'foreign'... Anyone who trys to overthrow the constitutionally elected government of the US by any means is just that, a domestic enemy of the Constitution.

Far Far Worse? That life was more precious? MTV would have been considered utter nonsense?

My father was born in 1935. My grandfather on his side was born in the 1890's. My great-grandmother was a coke user when it was legal. My grandmother was orphaned in a ferry accident when she was 7 or so.
I have DIRECT ties to the great depression. Yes life sucked for a great majority of people, but they got by because they had the WILL, the SENSE and the ABILITY to survive on THEIR OWN.

I HAVE read my history books. My father was a history teacher for nine years, during the great liberal uprising of the 1960's. As annoying and repetative as he was, I learned a lot of the past.

as MudFlapper Said "Jezzz..this is the USA...stuff like that does not happen here." He is wrong...... It is exactly what HAPPNENED to CREATE the USA or we would all be yapping with a British accent and more people would "get" Benny Hill.

I don't wish for a revolution, but neither do I wish for servitude to the state. I do not want to live in a place where personal choices are regulated. Everyone here seems to agree that there is a major schism between the left and the right. Everyone here seems to agree that more and more insane laws get put on the books that are either contradictory or so inane that most people are actually "criminals" almost all the time.

But the mere MENTION of a collapse of our way of life send people SCUTTLING like frightened MICE back to their cages. Cages which hold their food, comfort and security.... SO WHAT if you have to run through a maze for the people that run your life..... You are SAFE and SECURE, in your CAGE. As long as you act like a good COG in the machine of LIFE you still get your food pellets.

What happened to the pioneer spirit? What happened to self-governance? What happened to the willingness to accept RISK to make something better?

Or more telling..........What happened to the idea that if everyone tried to make their individual lives better, then everyone's lives would be better for it? Where are the Carnegie's, the Mellon's, The Getty's? Living their lives afraid of the EEOC? Afraid of the ACLU? Afraid of the EPA? Afraid to take the chance because the chance has been taken away from them?

I fear for my children.

There isn't going to be a fullscale breakdown and revolution unless something as bad as Katrina happens in more than 50% of the major cities of the U.S.A.

Now, complete dictatorship? That could easily happen if we get in a war for survival or if we undergo another depression like the 1930s. At that point, people would vote for a self avowed communist if he promised them the moon.

Come on man, Thomas Jefferson himself said that it was up to the people to overthrow a tyranical government. Thats why we have the 2nd. Just because politicians hold office doesn't mean that they themselves are abiding by the Constitution. Politicians should be leading by example and following it to a "T". They should be required to be experts on it since they swear to uphold it. We are told that ignorance is no excuse for not following the law. How come ignorance works for them? Just like the time that Ted Kennady through a huge fit because Ashcroft said the people need to keep their guns in case they need to overthrow a tyranical government. Kennady wanted Ashcroft to apologize!
You would take orders from fools like him? An enemy of the Constitution? And kill good Americans?
