The list goes on and on as I searched from one news source to another.

As I read all of these, I couldn’t help but think about the decadence of Rome and every other great civilization that took place shortly before their fall from greatness.  Most great civilizations of the past were not conquered by others.  They collapsed from within.  As they prospered, their moral standards declined and as their moral standards declined, they ceased to prosper until the very structure of their society caved in on itself.

Looking at the state of affairs here in the US, the growing decadence and moral collapse of the people can and will lead to the eventual collapse of American society as we know it, unless something is done NOW.  First thing we have to do is get rid of every bleeding heart liberal in city, county, state and federal governments.  Then we have to select leaders of strong moral character and put them in positions where they can turn things around.  If this doesn’t happen in the next election, history is destined to repeat itself as we slide down the path to destruction.
