    What are the 10 main reasons that the United States is now seen as a failure in economic and

    diplomatic circles of the world.  Why do the third-world countries believe it is better to aid enemies of the United States rather assist the warriors that wish to bring them liberty?  Has the United States lost the will to fight for freedom because it has become a socialist style society where most want to just depend on the government to take care of them?  Do you believe that the United States will recover from this social loss?

    Too Funny! LOL!
    The demise of the U.S. is greatly exaggerated to say the least. America is no longer going to be sucked into every "boots on the ground" war opportunity that pops up around the globe. There are many citizens who would prefer if we were complete isolationist. After all most of the world hates us anyway.
    As for our economy the stock market is at an all time high, the deficit is coming down, housing prices are going up, unemployment is lower than it has been in 5 years, and we still have the strongest military on earth!
    The vast majority of U.S. citizens (work) and do not depend on the government. In fact overall we have fewer vacation days than most industrialized countries.
    Just because a country's government does not turn it's back on it's poor, elderly. and mentally ill does not mean it's a "socialist nation". Denmark which is a (real) socialist country has the highest taxes in the world with over 70 percent of companies having 50 employees or less. The U.S, economy is driven by BIG business performance. Even average Joes have their money in 401ks and IRAs tied to the performance of the stock market. When the "great recession:" struck our government bailed out Wall Street not "main street". In fact a recent survey from British analyst WealthInsight reports the  U.S. has (added) 1.1 million millionaires since Obama was elected in 2008. Millionaires and billionaires are getting younger and more diverse every year in the U.S. The "American Dream" is alive and well.
    The one area of weakness in the economy has been the outsourcing of many well paying manufacturing and tech support jobs to other countries in an effort to increase corporate profits. We've also signed some bad trade agreements in the past as well. Both of these strategies have hurt the middle class. However the U.S. remains the one true "superpower" nation in the world. Just because we fight (internally) over how tax dollars are spent and which battles to support it would be a mistake to believe America is weak.

      while you laugh, the USA loses another 3 million jobs due to the governments policies.  the American Dream will never die, but the nation will as it crumbles under a huge deficit that continues to remove support to the citizens of the USA. not funny
