I believe you are correct sir. At the risk of being flamed, I think there is no hope for America either. We are finished as a country. I know some people are still confident we can turn this around. My opinion is, this could only happen through a civil war, so I am leaving the country soon. America was a nice experiment, but it has finally failed.
But just as the promises of socialism, the "fairness" and the "equality" are all just smoke and mirrors, so too is the strength of socialists. Their constant assertion that progression (their version) MUST and WILL occur is totally non verifiable. They win because of apathy and guilt and selfishness ("I'm not going to do anything because this particular issue is not my problem")
So I would urge you to reconsider, because when all is said and done, despondency is the enemy's greatest weapon.
