I'm tired of the over-simplified explanation of Rome's fall being used as comparison to present day America.
Until America divides itself in two and creates a second capital, for starters, then I'll start to worry about it's fate.
There were many, MANY things that caused Rome's fall.

Sounds like a plan. I nominate a tract of land near Wichita for the construction of New Washington (we can rename it [first notable leader in the new capital]-opolis later).
The ‘red states’ can go on for another thousand years after what passes for civilization in the ‘blue states’ collapses.
