I just don't see how a country where you can be anything and do anything as long as you put your mind to it and work hard is in decline.
Teenagers come up with million dollars ideas, Immigrants start small businesses that grow into huge cooperations, poor kids from the middle of no where are able to go to college and became doctors,a young child that loves to draw and paint can become one of the most influential artists of his time.
these things don't happen all the time in other countries yet they happen in America all the time.
Microsoft,Apple,The Wright Bros. Thomas Edison, Ben Franklin, Henry Ford, Facebook,The first artificial heart transplant, The cure for smallpox, NASA, Habitat for Humanity,The Heifer Foundation etc,etc.etc
I don't have time to list all of the great achievements that could ONLY happen in America.
We are still the envy of the world because there is no greater nation than us and because we take care of most of the world by sending billions in aid to them while still remaining the wealthiest and healthiest nation on earth. I challenge you to prove how it is in decline.
These are problems in other countries:
Starvation,Disease, Oppression by their governments.Marshall Law, Rioting, Unclean Water
Heres an American problem:
I don't have the newest Iphone!
I have to press 1. for English!
It is funny how people wish for the return of the 'good old days' which were actually the 'bad old days'.

Let me address some of your concerns:
record number of people on food stamps- So that's a record number of people that aren't starving to death because they live in a country where a family can get assistance for such a thing, doesn't sound like a declining society at all.
there are also a record number of millionaires and billionaires you seem to be only focusing on one side of the coin.

The debt- this country has been in debt since it was started, yet it still stands strong and proud. people go into debt, it happens all the time.

record number of babies born out of wedlock? I, I, just don't know what kind of an argument that is.
Are you saying a child born to married parents has more value than a child that isn't? Cant even to begin to explain how preposterously ignorant that is.
here's a couple people who were born (gasp)"OUT OF WEDLOCK"
Leonardo da Vinci
Alexander Hamilton
Oprah Winfrey

Can't control our boarders? Aren't you being a little melodramatic? I'm guessing your talking about Mexicans and not the millions of English, Irish, Scottish, French, German, Russian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Australian people that immigrated here as well.

ha you actually want people to be on food stamps????? Ha........decent people want JOBS instead of gov assistance.

debt.....pull your head out of the sand. You can't continue to be in this type of debt and prosper.

A child born out of wedlock has a strike against them right off the bat. A stable family with a mother and father is the most successful. Single mothers, for example, are much more likely to live in poverty.

borders..........do you even watch the news??????? You do realize we have a border issue right??

mexicans? You do realize we have a terrorism problem now correct? America is too concerned with being politically correct for it to secure its borders. Its a national security problem.

You do realize that any "problems" that we have here in the U.S. are not namely the faults of christians, Atheists, or terrorists....they are the fault of the greedy members of our U.S. government, and congress. You are just one of those people that wants to blame it on the fact that "god" isn't in our schools.

Yes, yes-- we know you are a racist too.

You already made that clear enough, earlier.

No need to repeat your bigotry.

By the way-- you **do** realize that Mexicans are more-- on a per-person basis-- christian that Americans are.

But I suppose they are not "real" christians-- according to YOU.

Right?

Because their skin is brown?

no this particular issue is namely the result of politicians being politicians and refusing to defend our borders because they don't wanna offend hispanics in particular. They may not get that hispanic vote

Is it the lack of violent intent in the non believers? There was one believer called George Anderson (or similar) that threatened to shoot posters. In writing. Madness!
