The fall of the united states - Wikipedia article

So, as of late, I've posted the full text of some Wikipedia articles which have fallen prey to the Deletionist League. But as a matter of fact, even I agree that some things don't belong on Wikipedia. But some things do deserve preservation on the Internet, somewhere. In that spirit, I present to you the soon to be deleted article, "The fall of the united states." This article was created by editor "Kyle Ferris" on February 23, 2010 (his sole contribution to date). It was proposed for deletion seven minutes after its creation, and two other editors endorsed this proposal within the following twelve minutes. Watch for it to be cited on a future edition of Glenn Beck's show.

The fall of the united states

The fall of the United States of America is a theory that has been given thought by some professors and scientists. Although many of them simply say this because they are anti-american, the fall of the United States within the next 20 years is a concrete possibility.

One theory is the economic depression that has gradualy worsen over the years. If this crisis deepens, the United States might "blow up" from the inside out, much like the Soviet Union did. If the United States does this, then the entire world will suffer a huge worldwide depression and it may take many years for the world to get back on its feet.

Another theory is another civil war. Much like the one from 1861-1865, politicians from the different states will slowly begin to become more fed up with the decisions that the country is making. If this continues without the government seeking appropriate compromises, the United States may have a second civil war. People across the nation will take sides and fight each other until a final victor is declared. Although it would eventually end, it would leave the nation extremely weakened, and a rival country such as China or Russia might invade and conquer the remains of the United States.

Another theory is the United States following in the footsteps of the Roman Empire. The people of ancient Rome gradualy became less involved in the unity of the empire and more involved into their own "creature comforts". With enemies becoming more daring along the borders, wars became increasingly harder to win. This led to more Roman soldiers dying, and less wanting to sign up. Towards the twilight of the Empire, generals fought multiple civil wars against each other to declare themselves emperor, which gradually left the state very weakened. One last blow from a strong nation is all that it took to leave the Roman Empire to crumbles. See any relations beetween this and the United States?

Although these are possibilities, one should not worry themselves. It is pretty unlikely that the United States of America, a nation still so young, would deteriorate so fast and so sudden. It is almost a fact that the United States will EVENTUALLY fall, but probably not in this century.
