Rome did not die in a day, it took hundreds of years, but in the modern age it doesn't take so long. We as country are less than 250 years old, and most of our young citizens do not know either the history of our country, or the history of the country of their ancestors. Credit that to our schools who teach social studies rather than history or geography. We have a lot of young people who are being taught in schools that the European settlers were imperialists and came to kill everyone who got in their way,
We have a new generation, indoctrinated by "teachers" who are liberals at best and Marxists at worst. When I was a kid, we gave the pledge to the flag, and had a silent prayer every morning. Now that that no longer exists, except Muslim children are excused to pray to Allah, 5 times a day.
Liberals hate what we Christian conservatives hold sacred, God, country, personal liberty and responsibility, and ignore the real enemy of Jeffersonian democracy, radical Islam.
Americans haven't woken up to the fact that we are in a battle for our existence. The socialists, Marxists, and communists are here right now and in power, and the Islamists are waiting in the wings. We are not done yet, but unless America wakes up and smells the mess that we are in, we will go the way of Rome, sooner than later.
