The chickens are finally coming home to roost for the rotting US Empire. Not only does it face collapsing bridges, neglected road repairs, homelessness and growing poverty domestically but internationally it has been blocked. Outmaneuvered by the Chinese economically, outmaneuvered by Russian weaponry it has no where to go. It no longer has any ideological justifications – its political representatives are held in contempt, its patriotism is waning outside of right-wing Trumpsters and the religions are losing adherents right and left.
