As with all great countries comes a great fall. Rome once was thought to be invincible, but we know from history what happened there. Russia (Soviet Union) certainly went through their heights and then crumbled. One of the ticking bombs in our country is the fact that we are a melting pot. In the pot there is always agitation. Sometimes this is a good thing and helps growth, but sometimes a sudden spurt of growth can cripple too! I like to think America will stand strong for a time to come, but I do have my doubts.
