The year is 2040 and in retrospect I wonder why we were all surprised at the fall of America. How could we have been? It had been in the making for the last 25 years.
As a people we turned a blind eye to our leader’s corruption, so there was no one to turn to when we inevitable became victims of that corruption.
As a people we let our leaders lie to us about any and everything, so there was no one to trust when we inevitable became victims of those lies.
As a people we cheered when our leaders undermined our worldwide alliances claiming to put America first, big, and bad we said, so there was no one willing to help us when we were in trouble.
As a people we embraced our leader’s rejection of the constitution, a document that had served us well for over 200 years, so there should have been no surprised when our government inevitably collapsed.
In retrospect how could we not have seen it coming.
