Gee, I thought I would get at lease one conservative stating that the down fall was due to loose morals, commie society, and democrats/liberal thinking.

That's not as far off as you think. The more you read about the fall of Rome the more you'll think you are reading about current times!

There exists in human nature a strong propensity to depreciate the advantages, and to magnify the evils, of the present times.

You can look up the actual history of why Rome fell. There are similarities to the current times. Corrupt, dishonest, greedy, egotistical...... politicians are ruining everything. The acceptance of total immorality by the world as a whole. The taking of GOD out of schools and government. Ofcourse, there are many people who pretend to be GODLY who are going straight to hell!

Comfort and forgetfulness. After generation of people working to build the kingdom and ensure prosperity, the later generation were awarded the luxuries of their ancestors. They expected such luxuries and gaurentees of freedom. They never earned any of and it was taken for granted.

The US will suffer the same fate. It has too. We will fall apart from within. The poor are not even close to be poor in this country.
