I have not posted here in a while, but I wanted to reach out to my fellow freepers for your views on a very important topic: the future of America.
We know our current situation and its continued decline should the course not be altered. I am interested in what America will look like in 30-50 years should we reverse our current course.
So I am curious as to what that America looks like to you. What is your dream, best case scenario 30-50 year vision of America, all facets-overall culture, education, media, government, etc?
It depends. Our society has always gone back and forth with conservative and liberal stuff. The pendalum constantly goes back and forth. The under 30’s might be our only hope. I am 43 so in 30-50 years, I will be 73-93 if I live that long....Maybe 73 but doubt 93...if it gets any worse, I hope not to be honest.
I think 40 years (two generations) is a minimum that it will take to reverse course and to ensure that we aren’t going to revert... we will have continuing medical advances and the population will continue to average up in age... whether it’s a better place or not will be dependent on whether or not we regain our moral compass. Over the short term (10-15 years) we could go “road warrior” and live like animals if the monetary system collapses.
I have no hope that America will reverse course. Obama wants tens of millions of Americans to die, and they will. After that, the Mexicans, Muslims, Russians, Red Chinese, North Koreans, etc., will flood in and loot the place. After that, America will be a Communist-Muslim dung heap.
Obama and his butt buddies have already obliterated America.
The war is now about liberty and freedom and God.
We must never give up...never give in!
I would hope that we would have the technology of Buck Rogers,
the family structure and values of the 1950s, drive muscle cars and motorcycles similar to those from the 1960s, and the fashion style of the 1930’s .....well, everything except for the bathing suits from that time. Well, it would be nice if that were the case.
I’d like it to look like the pre-Kenyan America. However, I believe that it will look like Mexico does now. Americans will be sneaking across the border into Mexico and points south to escape the tyrannical U.S. government, poverty and drug cartels running this country. Mexico will be the only country in this hemisphere where you’ll be able to get decent health care.
1. Abortion outlawed
2. Gays back in the closet
3. Churches filled to the brim on Sundays
4. Households full of children
5. Homeschooling is the norm
6. Strong national security & defense
7. A truly free market - no more crony capitalism
8. A strong dollar
Basically, full restoration of the Constitution & faith in Almighty God. I pray it happens.

The productive power of robots is going to turn society on its head, all over the world.
The changes that were wrought by the microcomputer and internet revolutions of the 70s, 80s and 90s will look like a Sunday-school picnic next to what's coming when robot labor becomes ubiquitous.
The left is going to take that power and use it to "liberate" about 99% of society from the need to do any productive work at all.
That situation won't last long, however. Idle hands are the devil's playground, and that aphorism will play out on steroids in the spiritually destitute world of the future.
Well reading that made me think of this saying
A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
Sadly I think we are though and I wont be here to see it
Our future will be a devolution to lows I can’t concieve.
I’m 65. What the hell do I care?
Looks more like a flying hibachi
I agree that it will take at least two generations to reverse the current course and that many of us probably will not be around. But we still need a goal or some vision to work towards for future generations.
To me, it is all about the education system and the media. Those have to be at the top of the priority list.
This is a very good discussion about an important topic.
I am sick of hearing about how the country will not exist in 50 years or that freedom will have been eradicated.
I want to discuss how we are going to prevent that and then what the restored America will look like so that we devote ourselves to realizing that vision, or at least moving us towards achieving it.
Please keep the responses coming.
