    Studying history America seems to be very similar to Rome in its last years. Greedy, fat, lazy, without ethics and morals. Politicians do the best for themselves and not the Empire / Country. There is a large difference between wealth and stature.
    My question is, is the US a sinking ship?

    Only the right half. The left half will be OK if we can just cauterize the "wound".

    I didnt because of peer pressure. I do NOT want people to feel they should vote on Party lines. I want the a realistic outcome. There is far to much bias going on here. Independant thinkers are the best Americans.
