A continuing journey away from the Constitution. The easiest way to destroy a nation is from within. As we move more and more toward socialism and Marxism, we will crumble from within. We may still be called the United States of America, but we will not be the same country.
Ourselves. We feel the need to dominate the world in weaponry due to fear, and whether they have more superior weapons than we have. We feel it is necessary to travel beyond the limits of space, and yet, have not conquered our own world and the depths of the oceans which lie before asking to be explored and discovered. We hold on to archaic forms of resources that poison and waste valuable time.. only if we ditched the old and used the available resources such as natural gas and cold fusion. We limit ourselves because powerful forces on this planet, control how we think and what we do. This is spurred on by greed and the need to feel power.
It's certainly not an external threat. Since our people are sanctimonious, corrupt, and ignorant; our government is facing bankruptcy; our economy is held together by shoelaces; the government spends 80% of its income on military affairs; the greatest threat to America is the US military, which now refers to the US and all of North America as "USNORTHCOM". One more financial collapse like the last one and that is who will be in charge. Most of the people will love it.
Apathy and lack of education - the powers that be like it when the populace is dumbed down and distracted by things that don't matter as opposed to paying attention to what is really going on. Keep them ignorant and afraid and they are easier to control.
I agree completely. Americans today have no clue as to what is happening in the rest of the world. Some even think that the US is the only advanced country in the world. Ignorance will destroy us.
I am an Indian and very difficult to express my opinion, but in general i say that USA is a biggest arms industry and this industry requires business and that is the conflicts on the globe.
I feel sorry to say but India as a developing nation in last 60 years faced worst from our hostile neighbors and were armed by USA .We bleed and divide and rule policy of British imperialists was with modification USA continued.
In some hard time USA helped India too.
USA is known for innovation and gifted Internet ,Computers,space science to the world.
Let us hope USA will change the course and will look for rebuilding of global order.
ensuring peace and prosperity
Government. Hasn't governement always been the greatest threat? Why do we have a Constitution with a Bill of Rights if government isn't the greatest threat? If one looks at history there are nearly no incidents were a bunch of independent citizens, subjects or serfs banded together to go start a war, roundup their neighbors for execution or compelled their neighbors to surrender vast amounts of property to finance the retirement of someone else.
Governments have done, continue to do and will do these things in the future because once a people have decided that they need a government, they step into the cage with the tiger. If the tiger isn't well trained and properly restrained the people will suffer. It is an axiom of history. The history of humanity is not the history of class struggle but rather a history of forming governments that eventually prove relentlessly rapacious.
The government of the United States, but we Americans aren't alone. It happens to be the single greatest threat to most other nations, too.
Republican-controlled corporations who are outsourcing our jobs and therefore this once great country into a Third World country.
The single greatest threat to America is our inadequate education system. If we do not educate the future of our country properly, we are going to be a second world country soon with high crime, high poverty, high unemployment, an uneducated populace and corrupt politicians who do not care about us.
The greatest threat to the United States is the "Domestic Enemies" we have in our government! They are not only a threat to the United States, these fascists are moving towards enslaving the population of the world. They are a worldwide threat to humanity as a whole. Hope none of you make it to the Assassin in Chiefs "KILL LIST"!
Turning away from God. Freedom can be a wonderful thing, but used improperly, we can destroy ourselves by unGodly choices. We are no longer a nation that recognizes him as our creator and sustainer. We we are seeing the results.
Quite simply, American's are the greatest threat here in the USA.
